    :) Different locations + different measurement standards. Coastal CT, thought the summer was terrific because there was only twice the entire summer that a planned sail had to be cancelled because of the conditions. That has to be a record. (It included standing Monday and Wednesday sailing, so it wasn't just that we planned around the weather forecast.)

    I hate hot weather. That's one reason I love the Pacific Northwest so much. However, this year, summer outdid itself. Day after day after day of uncomfortably (for me) warm days. Ugh. I hate sweating while sitting at my laptop!

    I'd gladly have traded some of these days for some of your rain, fasc.

    ****Today, however, was absolutely perfect. Warm, but NOT hot, with a lovely cool breeze blowing through the trees. Bliss.

    ah see...I sweat no matter what and I don't mind heat...but I really am one of those "dry heat" gals...I cannot abide the oppressive steam bath business...fortunately late sept and oct have been beautiful around here so I am hoping thhe rains stop in the next few weeks and I will at least get that...because you are right, if I wanted to live in the rain, I'd move to be near my grandbaby...which is where I'd rather be anyhow....

    Wind is blowing like heck here. That storm up in the Midwest is sucking a lot of air from the Gulf.

    Yup. Woke up about 3 AM to howling wind and rain. Looks like it's coming straight up from the Gulf.
