Humid and hot New York

New York is particularly hot and humid these days. But I won't say much against it, for a change! I actually like it. I like it a lot. I have always liked summer. The combination of the heat, blue sky, strong sun and the humidity or dryness (depending on where you live) have never been a problem to me. On the contrary, this is what it feels "home". Snow, cold, and negative degree temperatures is my nightmare. The marriage of the heat and the humidity is for some people almost suicidal but not for me. I don't see any problem and when you feel a little bit warmer, there will be an out-of-the blue thunderstorm that will bring freshness. On the ground and in the heart.

London has become hot and humid recently as well. The last three summers, the weather was really nice (to my standards at least). Warm and humid weather for almost five weeks non-stop, that is news for London weather! There is always a certain degree of unpredictability but this is what makes London an interesting city to be.

Weather wise, I definitely prefer New York in the summer, London in the winter and the spring. I can't find perfection anywhere 365 days a year!
