Three boogie boarders last Friday
Last Friday, it was hot. Really hot. And sticky. Humid. Uncomfortable.
In the afternoon Paul was heading upstairs for a shower and I suggested we run to the beach for a swim instead. We changed, grabbed towels, and headed out immediately. There was a breeze off the ocean, so that was good, but the water was so warm it was almost not refreshing. We got wet and stood knee deep in the water, letting the breeze cool us. We paddled around a bit but it wasn’t the refreshing swim we had hoped for.
Home we went, and after showers we felt much better.
Overnight that night we had a rainstorm that put two and a half inches additional water in our fountain, our unofficial rain gauge.
Saturday, Sunday, and now today, Monday have felt like winter to me. Warm but not sticky. I did some projects and got a little damp but nothing ridiculous. I’ve looked at the weather history and can see no reason for such a perceptible change… no reduction in humidity or dew point.
So, I guess I’ll take it as the gift that it is, a refreshing treat in the middle of summer.
