I hope we get some of that heat, as summer has run out of steam in recent weeks. The wood furnace was running a couple of days last week. Days start out sunny, but by noon clouds roll in and cool damp afternoons have been the norm. We were down to close to the freezing mark on a couple of mornings a week and a half ago.
We had 3 or 4 awful summers in a row now, last year I had to make fires through the entire month of july, and my garden was a failier 3 years in a row. Garden is growing, but it has slowed down alot Since the start of the month.
All the heat seems to ride below the Canadian border, and whenever it does move in here, it's stay is temporary. It is like filling the sink without the drain stopper in, the heat moves in, but it gets drained by cold air masses sinking down from Hudson Bay, and by the blocking effect of Lake Superior. As a result, very little beach weather and no need for airconditioning, but we need furnaces instead. This is not typical weather for us, as we used to get full summers from June to early September.
Stacy, I'll trade you some of the heat for our cool damp stuff.
