After the last seven days of 95+ degree heat — the last four of which had us at or above 100, including today — a cold front has broken through, and the rains have begun. When I got home about three hours ago, it was 100; it’s now 73, and it feels great!
Of course, the grass will grow out of control, as there’s about three days of rain predicted. That’s ok with me. All I know is that there’s finally a break in the horrible dog days we’ve been living through, where a mere stroll outside can suck the air right from your lungs, and that’s the important part!
