  • The daytime high today was lower than the nighttime low has been for many of the nights over the past few weeks.

    What a joy! I went for a walk...and enjoyed it! The cool breeze felt luxurious.

    The heat is predicted to return again tomorrow and go on through next week.

    The birds don't seem to mind either way. Would that I could feel that way, too.
