Summer came suddenly last week. It has been quite cool around here for most of the spring and I was looking forward to a slow slide into the heat of summer; perhaps with a coolish June. Not so. After a series of thunderstorms that produced a record number of damaging tornadoes, the weathermen said “Oh hey, it’s gonna get hot. Like 95 degrees plus.” And so it was. It has been 95+ continuously since then with no signs of letting up any time soon. Oh well. It didn’t give me much of a chance to acclimate to it. I raised the thermostat accordingly and we’ve just been warm until we got used to it. Ceiling fans have been in active use since then.
We leave on vacation soon so I guess it will feel like summer.
