why I hate springtime

It's spring (in the northern hemisphere!). The Sun is shining again, flowers are in full bloom, birds are a singing and people are happy ... except me!
I hate springtime : I am always tired, I feel confused, I am loosing my balance, I can't withstand the spring's sun (it gets into my head even when I wear a hat).
Waiting eagerly for fall and winter (my prefered seasons)

Greetings from Southern California. Can someone please explain what these seasons things are?

My muni ride ride yesterday was amazing. Low cloud cover, perfect exercise weather, just the right amount of moisture in the soil (allowed me to make it up a particularly steep hill without slipping). At one point I was riding a narrow single track with walls of blooming mustard plants on either side.

Love Spring

I grew up in Canada. I loved watching the World come back to life. Here in Australia, the plants donít follow the 4 season rules. Summers can get quite uncomfortable while cycling on one wheel. I miss the snow on the mountains and the forests filled with O2.
When I first arrived in Sydney, I kept going in the opposite direction because of the location of the Sun and Sea. Complete opposite of Vancouver BC.

I have lived my whole life on the east coast of Australia but have a completely reversed sense of direction. If we are disoriented my wife asks me which way we should go and then we go in the opposite direction.

I was in China many years ago with a colleague who could take a boat out of sight of land in Australia and still know which way to go. He invariably went the wrong way when we walked out onto the street in China but I was fine.

We had the German Muni and Trials Weekend over Easter. Perfect Summer weather. I'd never trade sitting outside at a campfire over being inside in the cold season.

Didn't wear a shirt for almost an entire day, when I had a relaxed day building trials lines and riding some trials. Had an awesome Muni Tour, and all the weather did was add another stop at a drinking fountain. Did a fun little trials competition in the sun, no fear of the pallets getting slippery. It's generally considered the beginning of Muni season, and man, I'm excited for summertime.

I grew up in Michigan, with four seasons. All of which work for unicycling, but in different ways.

Now I live in California, with three seasons. Winter is accessibly located about 90 minutes up the road, if I choose to go there, at Lake Tahoe. There is still snow and skiing happening there at this moment. Good to know it's there, but the snow makes all the trails disappear!

Our summers are a little bit warm (a BIG little bit) but humidity is low, and that counts for something.
