Seventy degrees here. 102 in Fort Worth. Ugh.

Also just got a notice of possible thunderstorms in Denver about the time my flight to DFW is supposed to leave. :mad:

We are going to get high nineties next week with a lot of humidity but I am sympathetic to those who are experiencing three digit temperatures.

The heat in Texas sucked, being over 100 degrees. I am so happy to be back in a more moderate climate. (Remind me I said that when winter temps hit -30.)

My daughter sent a note saying she would never take Colorado for granted again. She, her husband, and child are spending a few days in the mountains before he goes back to work. It is still in the eighties right now, and our nights are usually not this warm. With an attic bedroom, I may be wandering down to sleep in the living room with the swamp cooler tonight.

I have an attic bedroom that I sleep in six months out of the year because it's always warmer, and I can save some money on energy costs.

And we have a monsoon season this year! Two weeks of rain off and on with a proper downpour after the ground has been softened! I have sooo missed this.

People here in Florida look at me like I have 2 heads when I tell them that I like the rain and enjoy thunderstorms. We never had that in Commiefornia!

Last week we had 3.5 inches of rain in three days. That is almost a third of our annual rainfall. It came with awe-inspiring thunder and lightning the first night. My son and his crew were sitting on the back porch of the fire station when they saw lightning hit a nearby apartment building, sending shingles everywhere. They went down to check it out but no fire had started. Son said it was possible for attic fires to smolder undetected for days or even week before bursting into flame.

For the last ten days here, it has been just beautiful - between 70 and 80 degrees. The humidity is still a little high but otherwise, going outside is pure joy. This is soothing since June I lost a tree to a tornado, and July was a hot, humid nasty beast.

Back to sunny, dry, and warm here, though we had just enough drops of rain yesterday to dampen the grass so that I couldn't host my writers group in the garden.
