The last two posts were rather grouchy but that’s not my mood today at all. It has been a very lovely day. The high temp so far is 95°F, which might seem quite hot if you haven’t been living with daily highs of around 104°. Even better, we got almost a quarter of an inch of rain last night. This was unexpected. The last weather report I saw predicted nothing but hot and dry for at least the next week. It’s still mostly cloudy so I have a small hope for more and there is still a 20% chance.
2011 has been such an odd year. Back in January we got over two feet of snow and it got colder than Antarctica. (literally) And now, for weeks we’ve had 100+ highs, which we normally don’t get until August and even then not for weeks without end. I feel like I’m living in a bad sci-fi movie and I don’t mean that as grouching, just amusing myself in a strange way.
