I don't mind this rain (although, had I known, I wouldn't have done 3 loads of laundry and hung them on the line).

After a good rain this morning, it's actually nice enough to have the windows open. I hope this trend continues.

It's muy caliente here in LA. At least tomorrow I'm taking a 90 minute drive up to 8300 ft elevation to cool off and stargaze with about a 100 other astro nerds overnight ...

Present temp is 80F and there is a big black cloud hanging over the build. The wind is blowing. So it looks like a summer time thunder storm is on its way.

My windows are still open at 3 p.m., which is usually about the hottest it will get for the day. Maybe I could have my windows open tonight for a welcome change. *fingers crossed*

Our temp is 75F. Right now there are tornado warnings right on the RI Mass border. And that is right where Son #3 lives. He is about three minutes from the border. Not a good feeling.

Our skies are black and it is very windy. The winds are expected to get stronger in the next hour.
