End of the Calculation

Today was different. Very different. Today, I left the house wearing jeans, a shirt with sleeves (short, yes, but sleeves) and a jacket. A JACKET!

It was cool! The thermometer stuck on the outside of our window said around 70, but I think it just got stuck on the way down, because it felt more like 60. (According the Accuweather.com, the high was 79, low was 59.) The sun came out later and it warmed up enough to take off the jacket, but it was still quite refreshing to leave the house and not be sweating before you even walk out the front door.

"Thank goodness, some relief from the calcule," said Dr. B, as we took an evening walk.

"What?" I asked. "The calcule? Oooohhhhhh, you mean the canicule! A calcule is a calculation, a canicule is a heat wave."

"Huh," he said. "No wonder I was getting weird looks at work."

LOL - Mr B!!
Glad you're all cooler than we are!
(in many senses of the word...)
Supposedly our heat wave has relief tonight. I'll believe it when I see it. It was 87 when I left the house this morning.

Yuck.

We hit 103' in Fargo on Sun. Like a blast furnace when you stepped outside. Rained some yesterday but didn't really cool down until early this morning....was so nice to finally open the house and let in some fresh air. It is going to be high of 85' today which is a relief from the 90's of the last three wks. Great lake weather though! When you're at the lake, you gotta love it!! Perfect! Bobbie
