NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The area is on track for our coolest summer since 2009, but that’s leaving some people with seasonal depression, CBS 2’s Cindy Hsu reported.
“It’s very depressing,” Vinci said.

Psychotherapist Jonathan Alpert said this year’s summer sadness has a lot to do with the weather.
“Following the long, cold winter, they just expected a really long, hot summer, so they’re not seeing that,” Alpert said.
After the most brutal winter of my lifetime (it's a subjective judgment, so keep the statistics to yourself), I was more than ready for a mild summer. I think everybody else was, too. The reactions I've noticed hover somewhere between sighs of relief and tears of gratitude. My sister and I were talking this weekend about how enjoyable it's been, and she was delighted not to remember a single day over 90 degress in Indy so far this year.
Must be liberals. Everything depresses them.
