It’s really freezing today. If I don’t have to take the IELTS exams, I would prefer to stay at home.

Actually I prefer the cloudy day as it’s neither too hot nor too cold. And what’s more important to me is that this whether is perfect for photography as the light is soft and tender. So at this time of day, I’ll always go out with my camera to the forest parks to take photos.

In my hometown, as it is surrounded by mountains, the whether is quite pleasant, neither too hot nor too cold. Even in winter, the temperature is still quite mild. The weather is good almost all year round as my hometown is a tourist city and there is no any industrial pollution out there.

The bad points about the weather in my hometown are that it doesn’t snow as heavily as up north like Beijing. It does snow, but is just a little bit. Every time I saw children having a snowball flight or making a snowman on TV, I really envied them. It was really pity.

I believe though China is a vast country, there are four distinct seasons in most places. But unfortunately in recent years, many places in summer are becoming boiling hot. I guess the changes are primarily due to the green-house effect. So in this extreme whether, I will really prefer to work at home, and the air-conditioning is working all day long, and at night, I even sleep on the floor.

Yes, as Beijing is facing more and more oppressive haze, I always keep a watchful eye on the weather forecast. I installed an app in my mobile phone, and see the indicator of PM 2.5. It has been a routine for me.

As for the unusual weather, the global warming has really become a heated topic around the world. It is caused by the greenhouse effect as the a sheer volume of carbon dioxide have been emitted into the air, preventing the atmosphere from cooling off at night. And another unusual weather, I’m afraid is the hurricane which can easily flatten thousands of homes near the coast in a short period of time.

Well, if I were to choose between the two, I’ll probably go with the distinct seasons in each year because each season has its own merits. Whereas I will get bored if it is warm all year round.

No, when in spring and autumn, the temperature is neither too cold nor too hot, people in China tend to hike in the mountains, or go running. When it comes to summer, people can choose more physical activities like swimming, camping in the forests and playing balls, etc. But in winter, people believe it not suitable for outdoor exercises, so they prefer to stay at home for resting.
