Memories of a much cooler day

////Memories of a much cooler day

This is the 6th day of triple digits here and we have been breaking records nearly everyday. It is hot. Normally we are in the upper 80’s this time of the year.

So… I’m posting this to remind myself that the seasons will change, it will cool down. Eventually.

It was probably about 15 degrees when I took the image above, that is about 86 degrees cooler than the predicted high of 101 today.

    Now that I have time to answer this I am happy to report that our temps are cooler but I am certain it won’t be long before were are in triple digits again.

    Thank you all for commenting.

    We are enjoying low 80’s this week in the Arkansas Ozarks, last year it was triple digits. Go figure, but we do need rain.

    Cold, what is that?????

    We have the terrible humidity to go along with the heat… It’s not really overly hot here but the humidity makes it impossible to breathe and helps us all make stupid mistakes. It’s getting so the winter and the summer both have periods it’s best to just stop and reflect about where we’ve been and where we’re going. I’ve been hearing about your heat out there and it’s one of the reasons I live out here… although I guess we all have some aspect of this weather lately that just stops us all in our tracks!

    You picture is very inviting..We seem to have exported AZ heat to our neighbors, yet upped it a bit for everyone.. A good year to have no working cooling system for me too ;(

    I love winter too. New York has not been too hot but we’ve been getting lots of rain and humidity. Beautiful shot, Mia! and it would be wonderful to be in your photo right now!

    As a child (pre – AC in most homes) when we visited family in West Orange, NJ in the summer, my uncle would set up a slide projector in the driveway between the homes and hang a sheet to show slides of snowy vistas and winter play to cool us down!

    Thanks for the cool thoughts. We even had temps in the high 90’s and a few 100’s last summer and the summer before in Maine and New York. So far,the temps have reached the 80’s and 90’s…with lots of rain, some torrential…weeks of it, breaking records… while our daughter in Colorado really needs rain. They’re battling huge fires because it’s so dry. Here July is expected o break records for heat. It’s hard for me to believe any one not certifiably insane or developmentally delayed, could possibly deny the obvious facts of global climate change and global warming…and these are the people making life and death decisions impacting our lives???????????

    I’ve been thinking like this as well…….I really love the cold:)

    Your triple digits days have me shuddering in sympathy. This is a superb cooling and serene image – I hope it gives as much pleasure to you as it does to me (and some relief too).

    Beautiful scene Mia.

    No high temperatures here … in fact it is only 14 deg C!!

    Nice picture, and your right the weather will change. Hopefully it will change soon for you and us.
    I don’t like heat or floods, and too much rain and floods are what we have here in Vermont.
    Can’t convince me the climate isn’t changing.

    Gee Mia It wasn’t that long ago you were looking forward to warmer weather. Its cold here in Victoria Australia.
    Beautiful photos as always. Ronnie
