It has been the best summer I can remember since 2003, but for the past 3 days it's been very unpredictable, and today has so far been gray and rainy all along. They say autumn-like weather is coming this weekend.
Which is just fine with me, as I've had summer-like temperatures since late february (first in Africa, and ever since I returned, in Holland). I'm a four-seasons kinda guy, and 6 months of summer is too much for me...

Weird weather here in N. Alabama. We were hitting 95 degrees with head index up to 102. Last few days have been in the mid to high 80s. This weekend is supposed to be back in the mid 90's with 80 percent humidity.
Thanks Martin for your reply.
Many dutch got a day off: it's Ascension Day.
Years ago it was a tradition getting up early and go for a bicycle journey.
Holland is #1 bike country in the world, everyone got a bicycle.
An american professor researches this dutch tradition. (prof. Kevin Krizek)
as the sun rises over Lake Michigan to the east, it partly cloudy and 6C. I'll turn on some heat this morning just for 15 minutes to take the chill out of the air. The temps will rise to a seasonal and pleasant 15C by this afternoon.
Scratch my earlier reply. Herefordshire (western side of England bordering Wales if you're not familiar with UK geography). Hammering down with rain all day and 8C. I got soaked heading off to the shops at lunchtime and discovered that my shoes leak. Yuk! and what's more, brrrr....
20.5C here in south central Washington State USA. Getting way too hot for me already. We got an inch of rain in a storm early Wednesday morning. About 20% of our annual average precipitation in 12 hours.
Hot and humid.....looks like the rest of the week will be uncomfortable. I'll be organizing albums in air-conditioned comfort only to emerge for brief early morning or evening dog walks when the sun isn't so pesky. Where's October?
