I’m not sure who to thank but it’s been amazing for August in the desert this summer. I’m almost afraid to shout too loudly about this. The last couple of weeks we’ve actually had the windows OPEN! Yes, you heard that right. It’s been in the 80’s with a few low 90’s thrown in. This is unheard of in the desert when temps are usually in the triple digits for most of July and August.
The critters love it too. The birds can actually enjoy themselves without their little beaks hanging open and their wings held out to cool themselves off.
We’ve had a few thunderstorms so I’m sure that helped, even though little of the rain has reached us. It did rain good one day and the humidity has been up all month so far. We’ve still benefitted because of the clouds and got to watch the lightning shows.
I’m sure we’ll pay for all this niceness and be hit with triple digits again before fall gets here. I love it while we have it. We deserve it after the last winter we had.
