Weather Update

The heat wave's back has definitely been broken. We have been mid-90's or lower now for the last 3 weeks. Low 80's yesterday.

We've entered that precious 4 week period each year where the weather here is neither too hot nor too cold. The days are dry, a little breezy...the wind wisps away the last remnants of August. The nights...oh, the nights are unbelievable...smooth as velvet...not too cool, just perfect. The A/C only runs about 3 hours total a day (what a change!) and the trees are starting their ever-so-gradual transition to slumber. More from the dryness left by the summer and their just being too tired to fight and hang on now that a little relief is here. The grass has a sleepy, relaxed look to it now that the stress is gone.

These are the days of epic rides: take off on a ride in the early a.m. and not be back until the shadows get long (bike or motorcycle, take your pick). Wind makes tears streak your face, wonderful mild sunburn...enough to remind you of the pleasure you had. It's just this stinkin' thing called work keeps me from running away.

Next up: 70's daytime, 50's night. Looks to be coming up in about 2 weeks. Also, El Nino looks to be poised to end or severely dent our drought. More updates to follow.
