It’s Summer, Get Over It – Big Frank Down The Red Lion Told Me!

Posted on July 15, 2022

I have always wondered why certain people use severe weather warnings to look hard. In the winter it is, “Yes, it’s going to snow…guess what, it’s winter”. In the summer it is “Wow it’s going to be hot…it’s called summer, get over it”.  If there is a storm warning that might disrupt travel or bring down power lines, it’s, “In my day it was known as a windy day, end of”.
