5 reasons why summer is COOL 😊🌳🍉
Hello, world! It’s Lora. As most of us are in summer vacation now, I decided to make a little more “summerish” post. I will show you 5 reasons why summer is COOL. Let’s see…
1. Daylight Delight
In the summer season, areas in the extreme north or south receive a lot of sunlight. In places like Alaska, St. Petersburg and Russia (top) the sun doesn’t set until midnight in June. During the summers in Antarctica, the sun doesn’t set at all!
2. Meteor Shower Power
In 20th July, meteors an hour fly through the sky during the Delta Aquarid shower. That was an amazing sky view! 🙂 In summer there is a bigger chance to see meteors.
3. Chirp Alert
You know it’s summer when the crickets start chirping. Crickets actually change their tune depending on the temperature. When it is hot, they chirp very fast. You can even calculate how hot it is by listening and counting a cricket’s chirps. How cool is that! 😉 Here you can see how:
the number of chirps in 15 seconds + 37 = the temperature in Fahrenheit
4. Mega Growth
Flowers aren’t the only things that grow in summer. Kids grow up faster too because they play a lot outside on the sunlight. The Eiffel Tower can “grow” over six inches taller during the season when heat makes its iron expand. That’s awesome!! XD I can’t believe it… Scientists even think your nails grow faster at this time but they aren’t completely sure why.
5. Ice Cream
This is the last reason…and it’s the funniest also…EVEN THE ICE-CREAM IS MORE DELICIOUS IN SUMMER!!
