Summer’s here! And here’s why it sucks.

Summer is (officially) here. And while there are many lists on the internet dedicated to Atlanta’s season in the sun, I wanted to take the time and tell you the worst part about summers here.

  1. It’s really, really hot. It’s been hot since April and it’ll probably still be hot late October.
  2. Your commute is still awful. Less school buses, more construction. You can’t win.
  3. Your chances of getting skin cancer in the outfield at Suntrust Park are about 99.9%
  4. The e-coli count in the Chattahoochee is higher than the ABV % in your light beer
  5. TICKS
  6. You recognize like, 2 bands on the Music Midtown lineup, but still pray for tickets.
  7. To sit in the beer lines.
  8. Let’s not mention the port-o potty lines…and the overflow (ummm…sewage?)
  9. Scooters have overtaken all streets within city limits.
  10. Festival food poisoning.

Even with the sunburn, indigestion, and empty wallet…Atlanta is one of the best places to call home. Happy Summer Solstice!
