I think someone forgot to tell Mother Nature that it is September!!

I don't know about you but when I think of September....I'm thinking of autumn and colored leaves and brisk air. Sadly, it feels more like July-actually I think it is hotter than July. Today in Nagoya Japan (not near me) it was 39 degrees Celsius (102 Degrees F-not taking into account the very high humidity). Where I am it was pretty close to that. This is a special kind of hell.
Not only is it beyond hot and humid, we are having major storms where the heavens open up and pour rain down, lightening lights up the sky and of course, the thunder has my little kids scared. The weird thing is that normally in Japan, a rainy day is a rainy/cloudy day ALL day but lately, a major thunderstorm happens and you think it will never end and then it does and not only does it stop but the sun comes out and it looks nice and then maybe an hour or so later it repeats. Very strange for here! Also, a bit dangerous. My student's neighbour's house got hit by lightning. No one was hurt but it was scary and the power was off in the area for a while (so no air conditioner in this very hot weather).
The other day, while at work, the above weather situation happened. I took some pics from the window to show you the very black skies.

Hubby and I had started walking again at night but the last few days we haven't as the humidity is so high that I start feeling sick so will hold off until it cools down. I sure hope where ever you are that nature is treating you better!
