The Good of #Ghana -The weather (don't be jealous)

I’m in paradise. The weather in Ghana is glorious. I grew up in Upstate New York (Albany) where school was not cancelled even if the snow reached your knees. If they can plow it before the morning then there was no snow day. I’m shivering just thinking about it. My FB friends should forgive me for not ‘liking’ any of their winter wonderland pictures. On principle, I refuse.

The weather in Ghana is not consistently hot all year round, there are seasons. Harmattan (I equate this to winter) is the dry season, where you have to get out blankets and sweaters at night and early morning because it’s cool. Then there's the rainy season. The regular scorching sun season (my favorite) lasts for most of the year.


You will never hear me saying that it is too hot. No not me. After twenty seven winters, my mouth is shut when it comes to the heat. Like the McDonald’s saying used to go, “I’m loving it.”

Short sleeves all year long! Woo hoo!
Barbecue in October. That's the way to live.
I only took over the grill for a Kodak moment.
I was too busy enjoying eating.

Ghana is hot. Okay, so I was climbing a mountain when this picture was taken,
 but you get the jist. The weather in Ghana is warm (most of the time)

  2. I've had 20 winters in my lifetime. And I mean cold-bone-chilling-snot-on-your-nose-frozen winters! And I've also had 15 -scorching summers. As in fry-the-egg-on-asphalt-third-degree-burns-on-your-feet summers. All in all, I've realized that my perfect temperature would be 65 F, sunny, with a fresh breeze. Enough to wear a light sweater. Any idea where I can get a temp like that all year round?

    1. Definitely not Ghana. How about in one of your imaginative books.

  3. I love where I live around Buffalo. The four seasons are amazing, each has special qualities, even the snow storms! Although, come the long winter, I'll be wishing I was with Nana in Ghana.

    1. Lol. Buffalo is horrible with the snow. Take a winter trip to Ghana. You are always invited.

  4. It would be too hot for me I think, although I'm with Cathrina, when the winter comes I'll probably be wishing I was there in Ghana. Great pics!
