Today is the first day of summer.....
Lets all enjoy it as it seems to be short.....
Seems like summer has been in Texas for weeks now, Steve. I'm really tired of these 100-degree days and no rain. Ugh.
Here, this has been the most normal Spring we've had in years. The last few years, we have gone from slushy winter to blast furnace in four days. Hardly any spring to mention. This year I have loved the cool weather, although there were whiners about the 'cold'.
Summer is definitely here today and tomorrow. Thanks for the good wishes Steve. But I hope it stays in the 80's when these super hot days are over.
Happy Summer, everyone!
I know its summer but today was 26c, sunny with a slight breeze...
A perfect day to work outside which is what we did.. I have acreage where I live and that takes some working..
100f degrees we never get up here....
I hate summers in Texas! There is absolutely nothing to celebrate about day after day of 100°+ days and 85° nights. Nothing!
The only interesting thing, now, is that we're seeing 20% humidity, routinely, in formerly more high humidity areas. While this makes working in the high temps a little more bearable, those of us with backgrounds in ecology and climate shifts know that those low humidity figures are a harbinger of the coming desertification of more and more land areas in Texas.
Not everyone will enjoy the summer as I for one prefer the winter (•‿•)
Jessica... I'm with you on liking winter more than summer..
That is why I live in the north where we get the real winter weather..
Days of -30c to -40c are very common up here with no shortage of snow either.....
Oh I'd love to live where you are (. ❛ ᴗ ❛.)
I have always preferred winter, I'm just not a summer person. I love our dark evenings and mornings, there's nothing better than waking up in the winter and looking out onto the cold street as I get ready for work, even better when we've had some snow (•‿•)
I love it when there is hoarfrost--you know when the tree branches are all flocked with snow. and a coating of snow on the ground to make everything new. When I don't have to drive in it, or walk in it or go out in it....
Funny, but when we lived in Jacksonville, Florida, and decided to move back to Colorado, the few people that knew where Colorado was, were pretty shocked that we'd return to a winter/snow state. We had already lived in Colorado, 28 miles south of Denver, and encountered quite a bit of snow/cold during the 5 years we lived there. One thing we learned, not every retired senior in Florida is a Snowbird.
My BIL, wife's brother, moved from Baca Raton, Florida, to live with an old girlfriend in Alexandria, LA. While living there, he encountered some light snow and fairly cold temps. He was totally shocked. He was born in lower Michigan, but hadn't lived there for many, many years. When they broke up, he returned to Baca Raton and, as he told us "darn glad to be back in south Florida where I belong."
And, since we still have/use our 20 foot powerboat, summer is more important to us that winter. Although, we do love looking out our front window and seeing it snowing. Why? We don't have to drive anywhere in it.
I've got numerous pictures and video of snow, both when we live in Colorado before and since we've been back. There are those here that will say "other than the Rockies, Colorado don't get much snow". Well, that's definitely not true and many young folks that move here, find that out very, very fast.
My Denver area kid said that it might snow like crazy but could be gone in hours or in a day. She's send me pictures of cars encased in ice that were thawed the next day. Weird weather
I love it too, roll on the winter ◉‿◉
