what month is it?

Pete's flatmate and I were staring out the window, contemplating the rain.
Suddenly, he said

You know, I didn't mind the weather. And then I realized it was August, not October.

I don't mind the rain either, but it is weird to think that school hasn't even started yet. It certainly feels more like October than August. Although, after that heatwave here two years ago, I prefer the rain. At least we had a wonderful week of sunshine earlier.
And, it makes all the tea drinking I want to do more...useful. It is quite nice to have a cup of tea and read some of my favorite books.
