But there is still plenty of time until the end of winter! (winter hasn't even started yet technically speaking)

Yes I guess it is, if it was much hotter on other years during the same period Here too it was unusually cool this year until mid June, then the temperature quickly climbed above 35C and the heat lasted relentlessly until the end of July Just to make you jealous, we have been sleeping with blankets since early October, and yesterday I also used the top cover (made of a fluffy textile like soft synthetic velvet) for the first time this year!

People here wear scarves on rainy days when it's ~17°C, take that! Here it's more understandable because this is what we have for winter, but there it's really surprising!

Not much hotter, but I'd normally expect temperatures to reach 30°C (or more) some days on early December and this still didn't happen.

Well at least the intense heat lasted 1 month and a half, here the whole summer is scorching hot!

This is something to be jealous of! Sleeping with blankets is something I can only do in the winter (and not all days)

Yes I remember, but I'm the one who posted that airport (AkeZZZ correctly guessed it)

It opened yesterday after years of delay, I'm sure that's why AkeZZZ posted it (and why I wanted to post it too). The old airport consistently ranked on lists of "world's worst airports", so hopefully they will run this one more efficiently.
Who's posting the next one, Brazilian or mayass? (nice nickname )

I just learned there's a place called Al-Mayass in Beirut! Does this name have a special meaning in Arabic or the nice thing about it is what I'm thinking about?
