Go Away, Summer!

The hot weather has really overstayed its welcome this year. Instead of the balmy 78°F average high we should have, today it got up to 90°.  In addition, the humidity added another eight degrees to the "feels like" temperature.

It was nice enough over the weekend that we opened up the house, but since then the highs have been inching up a little bit every day.  This morning after breakfast I closed everything up and turned the air conditioner back on. (UGH!) The first day of autumn on Thursday won't feel like it because the above-average temperatures are supposed to hang on through the weekend.

I'm really looking forward to next week, when it's forecast to get back to normal

  2. Fall is my favorite season. It always seems to take forever to get here.

    1. JennTeacher, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! I like both spring and fall, but fall probably has a slight edge.

  5. I'm pretty sure we will go from 90 to 50 with not much in between!

  6. It hasn't been as hot here as I've been hearing about from folks. This year really sounded like a hot one for most.

    Happy Autumnal Equinox.

    1. Man if there was a way for me to send some of our heat up your way I'd do it in a heartbeat! I'm STILL wearing sleeveless shirts and shorts.
