59° Fondly Fahrenheit

Amazing. After a summer which has generally been hotter than usual, the temperature this morning is 59°. With a forecast of "highs in the upper 70s."

Seems to me at some point several months ago, we took a jump from "highs in the 50s" to "highs in the upper 80s." And it's been mostly "highs in the upper 80s" and "highs in the 90s" ever since. Now if only we can avoid frost warnings before Labor Day. ;-)

As a native of the Midwest, as one who has spent most of his life in this part of the country... look, most things about the Midwest, I love. But the climate here does leave something to be desired. Scorching summers, deep freeze winters, and not much in between. Global warming, a new Ice Age, move to the Midwest and you can enjoy both of them every year.

Heh - true. So very true...

Glad that you made it home safely! It was so very nice to get to sit across the table from you. :)

Hi, Paul! Been a while. :)

The title of this post forces me to ask if you've been reading any Alfred Bester lately...

LOL! Casey, I was wondering if anyone was going to catch that Alfred Bester allusion.
