Not Summer is officially over.
Welcome to Kuwait, where it's either Summer or not Summer.
That's to say it's not fall (absolutely no foliage), not winter (not cold enough and I don't care what Kuwaitis say about their winters getting through to the bone), and not spring (maybe a little spring in February).
I hate Kuwait's summer (which lasts from late March to November). From November to early March it's "not Summer".
The only redeeming factor to Kuwait's summer is that it's dry and not humid. Stickiness is the only thing I hate more than heat (sorry Jeddah, Dubai.)
Now I'm off to make sure I have my car's summer gear in it: driving gloves, shades and an extra pair of sunglasses. Oh the joy!
Things to look forward to: swimming, jetskiing and icecream. (And feeling the "not Summer" breeze again in November.)
