Oh, Bea. That makes an Ohio girl exiled in the tropics reach for a kleenex.

Right now it is a chilly 70F. Every so often a breeze blows and it comes right in the window at me. I refuse to close the window. It is too early. Sitting here at the computer, I am right in line with the open window. I like to keep it open since I smoke. I have my sweater on. I went outside earlier for a while and put it on. I hate being on blood thinners. It makes me more sensitive to the cold around me. I am going to get out my other blanket in case I have to hunker down for the night. I sleep so soundly when the air is cooler. As long as I am not shivering.

Another 92F. Over a month without rain, would have been nice if we could have stockpiled some of what we got this spring.

AND the Indians are winning! Perfect night. I might be in MA but my laptop can put me in Cleveland to hear the baseball game.

I can't get over the moderating effect of the ocean temperature. Then again, it's pretty much the same if you live close to Lake Erie or if you're 20 miles out like we were. Anyway, when I was driving home from the grocery stores around 7:30 or so the thermometer in my car was reading 56. We went below 50 last night and I'm sure we'll do the same tonight. Both kitty and I are eyeing that fireplace..

I live only a block from Logan and the waterfront. At Constitution Beach, at low tide you can walk over to the takeoff runway. Not advised. Cameras everywhere. But being so close to the water, it makes a big difference in our temperature and yours. Even when the wind is westerly. When it is from the east, the temperature really drops. Right in from the Atlantic. And I love it when everyone else's temps are in the 90's. Just not too crazy with it in the winter and I have to go out on my scooter. I don't have a windshield. Riding into the wind and the temp is in the 20's is no fun.
