Benefits: Summer is not cold… things can and do grow… you can walk around with very little clothing on, depending on your surroundings. You also don’t have to worry about plowing your way through Snow.
Drawbacks: Summer is HOT… depending on location, perhaps too hot to be outside at all… growing things need LOTS of water, preferably uncontaminated… Also, walking around with very little clothes on can get you sun burnt if you aren’t careful.
Summer can be fun; water parks are open this time of year, as are pools and other amusement parks. School is out; vacations can be taken more easily. Go fishing… to a lake, a river, some place with water. Maybe go on a nature walk through town.
