I love a good loud cracking, jump out of your skin thunder storm.
This morning it was so overcast and pouring rain. The temps were in the 60's and stayed there most of the day. As night time approached, the thermometer started to climb. So now it is in the mid 80's. We are expecting a hot weekend in the 90's. Our fireworks are shot from barges on the Charles River. They never get cancelled.
I doubt I will be watching the Boston Pops on TV. The last time I went in town to see them was when Son #3 was about five y.o. He is now 40. The temps were in the high 90's and we were sitting in the sun for the whole day. I usually watch them on TV, but I am going to skip them this year. I think I have had my fill of the Overture of 1812. BTW, did you know that, that piece of music is not about our war of 1812, but that of Russia's. As Andy can attest, this is the craziest weekend in Boston for the year. Tourists plan their vacations around this week and workers in Boston also. This year they get a bonus. The Tall Ships as well as the concert. I feel sorry for the folks who man the sites on the Freedom Trail. I am going to my daughter's tomorrow after I run a couple of errands. I plan on sitting on the lounge and working on my embroidery. A nice cold glass of iced water at my side. Her patio is in the shade most of the day.
Happy Weekend every one. And here's hoping and praying EVERYONE gets a deluge of rain for at least three hours.
