CONTEST: It’s Hot Out There!Thursday, August 4, 2011 13:00
However, we’ve been fairly lucky this summer here in the San Joaquin Valley of Central California. We had a beautiful cool-down in July for a couple of weeks, a time when it’s 100+ degrees, even in the shade. Temps in the mid 80s had all of us lightheaded here in the nation’s prime ag land, running around doing things we don’t normally do during summertime!
Then it’s back to the old grind, according to the weatherman. 101, 102 degrees this past weekend. I had visions of our yearly contest of how many days running it would be 100+ and would we hit 115 again. But wait! That dire prediction never came to pass. We hit the high 90s and thought we were in heaven. And it’s the same for the foreseeable future, thank goodness. Central Californians will take high 90s any day of the week, believe you me.
So what’s it like in your part of the world? Hot and getting hotter by the minute? Or are you also experiencing some cooler, abnormal weather for this time of year?
What do you usually do, if your temps are where they should be, to beat the heat? And if you’re lucky to have it nice right now, what are you doing to take advantage of that beautiful weather?
And what do you get if you tell me? Ha! You just know there’s a catch, huh? But it’s a very good catch. How about this nifty pile of books:
