I think this week it is fitting to write about the return of summer.
This has been a very odd year, weather wise. Winter was milder than usual, but there were still some cold snaps and snow. Spring didn’t want to arrive and was stretched out. We had yo-yo weather, going from warmer than usual to colder than usual with no temperatures that were at all usual! And it’s been wet. Very wet.
After a very cold and wet start to June, temperatures warmed up. The extreme (for June) cold of Monday and Tuesday gave way to a few gorgeous early summer days. And then we had a heat wave (officially, a heat wave is three consecutive days above 90 F). Although I complained a little, I wasn’t as uncomfortable as I often am in a heatwave. The humidity was lower and the house started off at a much lower temperature because of the cold last week. The heat broke last night and we are look forward to several beautiful June days. The next week will see “normal” temperatures and a lot of sun shine. I see some rain in there and a few cooler than average and a few warmer than average days, but all within a very normal range. No more yo-yo weather.
So it looks like summer is finally here! No going from shivering to sweating in just a few hours! An I’ll smile about it :)
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the link-up (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
