It's still spring

I realise I’m coming across as a whining pedant, but I’ve lost count of the times that I’ve heard people complaining that the summer has been really disappointing so far, weather wise. To all of them, I’ll say here what I’m not brave enough to say to their faces: SUMMER HASN’T STARTED YET. Your time to moan will undoubtedly come but there's no need to jump the gun.

as aristotle once said, one swallow does not make a summer, neither does one fine rant; similarly one day or brief time of pedantry does not make a person entirely a pedant...
but nearly.
