Last Monday we had a high temperature near 90 degrees.
Wednesday night we had frost, with a low of 24.
Yesterday (Saturday) the high was probably around 75, but it felt much hotter in the city where we went to visit my dad. He and The Hermit tried unsuccessfully to get his mini RV started. The kids were finding all kinds of treasures in the attic, stuff my dad was more than happy to get rid of, like an old Pong video game, various books, doll furniture, and a skateboard (uh-oh, more broken limb stories in the future?) Then a quick visit to Trader Joe's, and we were headed home with the air conditioning on in the van. The sky grew cloudier the further north we went. I had to stop at the grocery store in Sandstone for ice, and when I stepped out of the van an icy blast of northeast wind hit me. The thermometer at home read 32.
The high temperature today is supposed to be 55, with a strong northeast wind all day. I guess gardening will wait until next weekend.
