A summer chill

It occurred to me that after climate change stops the Gulf Stream, winters for UK residents may end up actually being warmer than summers.

Summers will resemble Siberian summers in their chilly beauty. However, it is during the summer that you must chop and stack wood to dry out for use the following winter. If you burn all your wood in the summer, you might freeze to death in the winter. But in winter, you chuck on the fuel and get the house as hot as you can, so that the bricks will hold the heat.

So we might end up shivering in July, and saying, "brrr . . . can't wait for winter!"
