“Raindrops are fallin...”

Description from J Yee smart chick: our extremely high temperatures have gone down in the past week, back to sixties and seventies, and we actually have had some much welcomed rain in the past couple of days... not much, but such a relief nevertheless! :)

    Beautiful pick, Joyce! These soft, muted colors illustrate the welcome relief you must be feeling! :D

    Oooh shiny! From your weather comments, sounds like you’re in my neck of the woods? Now if only there were a pewter piece of a formerly molten cat waking up to enjoy the better weather.

    Lynn, thank you as always for your compliments, YES!!!

    Regina V, I live in Seattle, where do you live? We had a day about a week and a half ago in which temperatures exceeded 100 degrees, whew… most unseasonal, we’re definitely not prepared for this kind of weather up here. In contrast, people in northwest Florida tend to rely on certain elements such as screened in front/back porches on houses, often with ceiling fans, great for keeping air circulating – they do a much better job of keeping air flowing than air conditioners. We also went from air conditioned cars to air conditioned office buildings… to air conditioned shops… :) , I spent a fair amount of time at the local Tully’s coffee shop in my neighborhood drinking either ice coffee or ice tea/lemonade while I studied in the mornings… :)
    ditto to your comment about wishing that Green Girl has a formerly molten kitty bead, your poor kitty must have had a rotten time coping with the heat, I’ve heard my classmates say that it was pretty difficult to help their pets, cats or dogs cool off during our recent heat wave! :(

    We’re in the North East (Boston), but I think we catch the same weather patterns – just a few days later. We live in an old house, so cross ventilation is less of an issue. After 2 or 3 days of being steamed like a dumpling even moving air doesn’t help much. I let the kitties go down into the basement for some relief. The white cat in my profile photo lets me put her into a few inches of water in the tub, she’s the easy one.

    The good side – after cool and rainy for most of the summer, the heat finally ripened out berries and tomatoes. Just in time too – I’ve seen frosts starting as soon as late August.

    Regina, you’re in Boston, whew, my sympathies to you! I know that folks in the south, such as Texas and much of the southwest also have tremendously high summer temperatures. I’m glad you have a basement in your house that your kitties can go down into, that white kitty in your profile pic is amazing to let you put her into a bit of water in the bathtub, most kitties HATE water! Glad to hear that the heat has helped your berries and tomatoes to ripen. Late August is way too soon to get frosts, no wonder the LL Bean’s and Land’s End catalogs already have their fall clothing lineup out!!! :)

    Yeah – we had our 2 weeks of summer here already. Glad that’s over. Now back to monsoon, then snow. And more snow. And … more snow. Then dreary rain and horizontal sleet, then more rain, then 1 week of Spring, more rain and snow, 3 weeks of summer and repeat. Why did people settle here?
