To damn cold and wet

Greetings from a cold Lansing. This pic is the jet streams position this weekend. As you can see, it dips down right over Michigan.
It's been pretty much in this position all summer. That's why July was an average of 3 degrees cooler than normal. Now 3 degrees doesn't seem like much, but if you have a few days normal or above normal, that makes the rest of the days way below normal. Yesterday's high was 63. Today's high is forecast for 65. This is more like late September weather. On an up note, the grass has never looked better, and we've hardly used the air conditioner this year, so good on the utility bills. And our normal rainfall for the month of August is 3.46 inches, so far we've gotten 6.41 inches.
But in other news, it's been a so-so week at the salon. steady, but not real busy. And yesterday after work, (when the rain finally stopped) I got some more veggies from the garden.

The Tomatoes and Peppers went into our Spaghetti sauce for dinner yesterday, and the Potatoes will be added to a Pork Roast Sunday.
Now it's time to get ready for work.


  1. Yeah, I was about to say... the grass has never been so green at this time of year. I'm actually going to have to mow it!
