Happy summer everyone! Congratulations to all our Summer Solstice basket winners!
If you are in Colorado, I pray you’re safe from the wild fires. If you’re in the east, prayers for those affected by the storms that yanked the power from so many. It’s been a strange season here in Oklahoma this year. Spring always brings tornadoes and here in the central of the state we had one to mention. It was scary though it was a good ten miles from our house, my husband was only a half mile from where it touched down. We’ve had rain. Now when I say we got rain it usually is accompanied by house-rattling thunder that sends hubby’s little dog into panic attacks so those are bad. Very bad. Strangely, we’ve had just one or two mild ones. The rest of the spring we got two to three days at a time of much needed no-fear rain, downpours. I like those. Feed the earth without scaring my pants off me—I can handle those storms.
They were saying to expect triple-digit heat by the end of April and that, too, didn’t happen. I think we have had one or two days and it’s already July. By this time last year we were well on our way to thirty days straight of 100%+ temps that began in June, totaling 63-100%+ days by the end of summer, without a break for even one day of less than 100%. As I said- odd weather this year. But I can’t help wondering—for all our calm spring, lack of severe weather/tornadoes—what’s in store for us come fall?
I think for now I’ll enjoy the nice weather and not let what may come spoil this beautiful summer for me. I hope you have a nice and bearable summer. While you’re here, why not share your weather with us here at ABM? We’d love to hear what other parts of our country and the world are having in the way of a normal/abnormal season.
Happy belated Independence Day!
