It's amazing how much sunshine changes a place. The brighter something is the nicer it usually looks. Flowers, trees, people, cars, pavements, most of them look lovelier in the sun. On a visual level there's no doubt it looks better.
However, the fact it's so hot is not a good thing in my world. It means I'm all sweaty and wheezy.
Overall I am not a fan of this weather and the sooner it goes the better. That said I will admit, it looks nice.
