I suppose there have been times when the month of August has been cool, but I don't remember any. In a normal year August is hot and sunny. Today at noon, even with the sunshine, the temperature was only 68 degrees with promise of the 50's for tonight.
Those who delight in days spent lakeside basking in the heat are not happy. Gardeners are bemoaning the fact that their tomatoes are very slow to ripen this summer as are other vegetables. There is talk of an early fall and a long, cold winter.
But I don't care. It is now cool enough for me to drag out my green fuzzy blanket at nap time.
It takes very little to make me happy. :)
