Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Savouring it.

For the better part of the past two weeks, those of us here in the Pacific Northwest have been in a damp and cool weather pattern.  Temperature has been about 15 degrees below average, and in the first 10 days of June we have received 4 times the average rainfall(1.11 inches) we would usually get for the whole month of June(0.27 inches). 

I'm not complaining...far from it...I'm attempting to savour it.  Lows in the morning have been hovering right around 40 degrees.  That's light jacket or sweat shirt temperatures for most folks, but I've refused to give in an wear anything more than my shirt.  I fully realize that in 2 or 3 weeks, we could be dealing with temperatures in the 95-100 range. 

Today was a nice day...temperature in the upper 70's, and tomorrow it's supposed to be in the low 80's.  There is every possibility that we might not see a daily high in the 70's again until September, and the 60's, like Friday was, until October. 

So, yeah...that's worth risking a little sniffle now for the chance to shiver in the rain earlier this week...

  1. How odd that Utah weather is acting just like your weather, at least up here in the North. And, like you, I am savoring. I dread the 100's, even with almost no humidity. Basted or broiled, 100 is 100, or something like that.
