Summer or winter?Animefan12 So, in Keycha1n's list "Top 10 things we don't miss until they're gone", she wrote that when it's summer, people wish that it was winter and vice versa. But what do you prefer more? Summer or winter? You don't have to choose summer just because there is a vacation. You have to write which CLIMATE do you prefer more. I'd also like to tell that mosquitoes needn't only come in summer. The temperature mosquitoes ask for is 18 degrees to 32 degrees Celsius. (That's winter for us). It is pretty surprising that even though you can wear sweaters and jackets during winter to feel warm, many people like summer. The town with the most terrible winter is Oymyakon, Sakha, Russia where during January, the average temperature is minus 45 degrees Celsius. The place with the most terrible summer is Kuwait. Average maximum temperatures in July are 45 degrees Celsius. Some places in Nunavut, Canada have year-round winters. For example, Alert, Nunavut, the North most town where people actually live on earth which lies at 82°30'N Latitude has an average maximum temperature in July at 6 degrees Celsius. Some places in India have year-round summers. In such places, the winter is very pleasant to visit the city or town. Even Florida has year-round summers, but the winter isn't that cold in South India.
The worst thing winter can do to a human is Frostbite. There are 4 degrees of frostbite.
1: Ice crystals forming on your skin
2: Your skin begins to feel warm, even though it is not yet defrosted
3: Your skin turns red, pale or white.
4: Pain lasts for more than a few hours and you may see dark blue or black areas under the skin. But Frostbite can happen only when the wind chill is below 50 degrees Farenheit.
Prolonged exposure to cold, damp weather can result in a condition known as chilblains. The symptoms on hands and feet include redness, burning, itching and chapping.
Summer causes sunburns. There is something called a sunburn index or UV index which ranges from 0 to 15. If the forecast value is in the 7 to 9 range means people with fair skin could start to burn in 7 to 8.5 minutes.
The index value for light-skinned people is:
0 to 2: 30 minutes
3 to 4: 15 to 20 minutes
5 to 6: 10 to 12 minutes
7 to 9: 7 to 8.5 minutes
10+: Less than 6 minutes
People with darker skin can tolerate exposures four or more times longer but don't worry, the lighter the skin, more Vitamin D is absorbed by the body.
The climate in the place where I live is hot and humid throughout the year with an average annual rainfall of 1541 mm or 61 inches.
The peak summer is from May 15 to June 10. During that period, the average maximum temperature is 40 degrees Celsius and average minimum temperature is 28°C. The driest month is March and the wettest month is November. All people in our city love rainfall. It reduces the temperature and makes the surrounding pleasant. The pleasant time is from November to February when average maximum temperature is 30.5°C and average minimum temperature is 22°C. So I prefer winter over the frying pan. I hate the summer here. By summer, I mean March to September.
Write in the comments below what do you prefer more, Summer or winter. Moreover, state what do you dislike about your climate.
In the end, we must realise that our planet Earth is having a really nice climate compared to other planets because of the atmosphere and the greenhouse effect.
