    I had to move here because of my hubbies work. What a God awful place.Most particularly regarding the weather. Summer or winter, the wind is relentless. If you are a gardener, it is hopeless. Although the grass does grow pretty well and that’s about all! Usually the summer does not start until late July – they insist on having their carnival and fun-fare in July which is always a washout. Pretatyn summers are usually from about the end of July to the end of September – not that long!

      Here is some advice, if you are that un happy and feel the need to be negative why do you not divorce this husband of yours? you sound like your in such a hell hole! I am sure there is other people from war torn countries that would gladly swap with you….You sound like you have to much time on your hands growing grass why don’t you get yourself a job? Don’t tell me your a housewife!and proud? They insist on having a carnival because its something they do…part of the culture if you don’t like it go back to your hole.. everyone enjoys it unless you have a dull, morbid personality. If the summer is not up to your standard queen b tell your husband to get a job in the amazon or something possibly where there is no internet signal so you can’t write… 🙂
