Lookin At Life Cooler, Man

Finally, finally after week after week of 90-plus degrees, and only a few brief spits of rain...

this afternoon, we had a wonderful half-hour of rain and cooling wind.


The dogs laid anywhere they wanted, instead of just under the fan --
I could pull weeds, and actually have them come out of the ground --
And we drank hot coffee this afternoon.

It was almost even chilly this evening!

And in the meantime, Denver broke the previous records for 90-plus-in-a-row days...set in 1878 and 1901.

I am not making this up.

If we don't get more rain in the next few weeks, we will be in for the hottest, driest summer ever recorded.

But I don't care right now. I am loving that rush of cool air...and the prospect of deep, restful sleep tonight.
