I seldom get to gloat about weather up here, but it's now mid-to-upper 70°s, ~40% humidity, and bright sunshine. Looks like it's going to stay that way for another week even. Dare I hope that we'll have a real summer this year?ReplyDelete
Your "about" page doesn't give a location. I assume you're living in the Pacific Northwest...Delete
Yes, western Washington. We had only half a summer last year, and no summer at all the year before that. Probably because we used up our temperature allotment in 2009 when we had an extra warm (for here anyway) summer.Delete
I'm not sure what you people are complaining about. Here in Northern California it's 75 and sunny with no humidity and you don't hear us whining (well, actually, it is a little chilly in the morning and I think I saw a mosquito a couple of weeks ago).ReplyDelete
Nice here on Kauai. You know, in the tropics.ReplyDelete
