Summer Cold Front

The thunder and lightning and rain of last night foretold the arrival of something rare out here on the high plains: a summer cold front. After weeks of daytime highs in the upper 90's and lower 100's, today it barely made it to the mid 60's. Sleeping weather as I like to say.

It was cool enough that when Molly and I took our walk tonight, I actually wore a jacket. Of course I had to shed it a few miles into the walk because it wasn't that cool. {*grin*}

I'm off to enjoy the sleeping weather while it lasts, but I cannot resist ... How about them Rockies? Bottom of the ninth homers to win two nights in a row!

  1. I think of that as sleeping weather too. I like it, and I'm thinking about fall at this point. :)

  2. Have you been watching Strasburg pitch for the Nationals? Wow!

  3. I love those cold fronts! Wait, we have a constant one of those here. Hooorah!

  4. That's some lightning picture. Mother Nature at her most dramatic! Too hot here in NY. We hit 104 yesterday. Looking for that cool front.

  5. Ah, I wish you can send that cold front over... It's been quite miserable here lately with the heat and the humidity. It's been raining a lot here too, which is not very common this time of the year especially heavy rainfall. The rain doesn't seem to help cool things down and it's only going to get more humid as August rolls around.

    Oh how I wish we had a cold front too...

  6. So happy for you... rain and cooler weather? You're one lucky dude. Send some our way ... East.


You know you want to ... so just do it!!!
