1) How long is your typical summer season?

2) What is your favorite thing about summer?  Least favorite?

3) If you could do anything you wanted, right now, this very moment (money is no object) what would you be doing?

1) How long is your typical summer season?

Not sure what this means but I would say from the time the kids get out of school, late June until early September when they go back.

2) What is your favorite thing about summer? 

The "freeness". Less clothes, shoes, no jackets, being outside more.

Least favorite?

The humidity and when there is no humidity and it is beautiful out, being inside working.

3) If you could do anything you wanted, right now, this very moment (money is no object) what would you be doing?

Be on vacation.

1.  Summer?  As defined by....?  Generally I only need to run the furnace from November through March.  I don't know if that answers the question or not.

2. Favorite thing?  All the fresh produce. Least favorite?  Heat/humidity.  I like things nice and medium.  Daytime temps no hotter than 85, evening temps no cooler than 50.  Yes, yes, I'm a precious little hothouse flower.  I've made my peace with it :)

3. Money no object?  I'd renovate the bathroom and kitchen, add a bathroom in the basement and have the sewing room professionally finished.  And I'd have a 1.5 car garage built. (1.5 so that I don't need the shed.)

How long is your typical summer season? Well there's an old saying that NH has two seasons - Winter and the Fourth of JUly -- but generally it's from about the last week in June until Labor Day

2) What is your favorite thing about summer?  Least favorite? I am a water baby, i love to swim, pool, ocean, beach, i'm happiest in the water so I love that about summer. Also love the slower pace of life, little things like staying up later, how light it stays, sitting on the deck with mojitos or wine, the opportunity to read alot of books, ice cream stands, farmstands, road trips, it's all wonderful.  my LEAST favorite would be heatwaves when it's over 90, mosquitos, black flies, and lightning storms.

3) If you could do anything you wanted, right now, this very moment (money is no object) what would you be doing? I would be doing summer theater somewhere so Icould spend all day rehearsing rehearsing rehearsing one play and then perform another at night.... there is nothing like it...

1) How long is your typical summer season? - All summers are the same length. From the summer solstice to the autumnal equinox.    Wink  But if you mean how long do we experience summer-like weather, then usually 4.5-5 months I'd say.

2) What is your favorite thing about summer?  Least favorite? -- The sunshine. The humidity.

3) If you could do anything you wanted, right now, this very moment (money is no object) what would you be doing? -- this very moment? sleeping on a beachside deck maybe ...

1) How long is your typical summer season?

If you mean how long the season lasts then, about 3 1/2  months.  I live in an area with 4 basically equal seasons, give or take the odd funky weather from time to time.

2) What is your favorite thing about summer?  Least favorite?

The laid back nature of work and school.  The heat and humidty combination.

3) If you could do anything you wanted, right now, this very moment (money is no object) what would you be doing?

Short term?  Traveling.  Long term?  Running a charitable foundation that helps single women, children and pets.  

Good questions, foul....good questions.

Ours is about 70-90 days, Early/mid July to mid/late September.

2) What is your favorite thing about summer?  Least favorite?
I love the carefree days.  I hate the carefree days.  ;)

Hmmmmm, not sure.  My PLAN for the day is to not have any plans.

I agree, love the fresh produce.  We ended up having green beans for dinner, from garden to table, love that.

I almost said the lack of structure for both too, I have a love/hate relationship with the laid backness too.

It's not tied to my children's schoolyear anymore - Jun through Sept.

2) What is your favorite thing about summer?  Least favorite?

Long days is my favorite, humidity my least favorite.

3) If you could do anything you wanted, right now, this very moment (money is no object) what would you be doing?

Well, I would be off this conference call and at the beach - and when it ends that's where I'm going, so life's pretty done good.
