This weather sucks!
I know, I know, it's kind of pointless to complain about the weather, but Mother Nature just can't make up her mind here. We had a COLD, wet spring with temperatures well below normal. Then, about 10 days ago, we were thrown into a heat-wave. Temperatures jumped 20+ degrees overnight. No-one was prepared, least of all me. And anyone who knows me, knows I don't like the heat. But there we were, stuck going from 60-65 degrees overnight into the upper 80's. Then the 90's. And then yesterday we broke the former record with a recorded temperature somewhere on the Island of 97 degrees. Oh, and did I forget to mention how humid it is here? We *are* stuck on an island in the ocean afterall... The humidex put the "real feel" temperature at around 108. That's just plain wrong in my opinion. Just plain wrong. And then today, what happened? The smart reader will ask... High of 68. Yep, as per the CBS news tonight, we had a 28 degree drop in our high for the day in my city. And tomorrow? Back into the 80's. I give up.
