    Aw shucks! We'll just have to try even harder to torture the Old Mother Country. Perhaps another World Cup match?

    Don't it just suck though when the Jet Stream assumes the shape of a bell curve in the summer . . . .

    Please. Let's not inject politics into the weather. It's one of my few escapes from the endless blather.

    Ten, eleven days ago LGA reported 100F (37.8C.) I'm guessing that the Gulf Stream brought that your way.

    Rain storm hit last night, wind gust tossed a metal 10x10 pergola over and bent the metal support arches. Now I have to disassemble the whole thing while I wait for replacement parts.

    Locally today it was about 87 degree,F, and within range of what we've had over the past few decades. Maybe a bit warmer and sooner than in past years, but not out of the usual ranges of the past several decades as I've experienced living here.

    Warmer than "usual" or "average" ? ~~~ I doubt it given similar past experiences ....
    ... but neither cooler than usual either ...

    So far, while "cooler" than other parts of the Nation, within usual parameters of our region and cause for no great alarm. ...

    Six months from now we'll be freezing our 'gonads' off and wondering if it's Colder than Usual ...

    Kind of like when you throw stuff off your boat and it plummets into the sea.
