Almost Record

Thursday, August 15, 2013

It was within a couple degrees of setting a record for the coldest August 14. It is supposed to drop into the 40's tonight. It feels like Oct. I am torn about turning on the heat. Who has heard about using the furnace in August? I've decided on using an extra blanket.

    I can imagine it will get warm again. You are right. Cold temps in Ohio, in August, is unusual.

    It is either so stifling hot that you are unable to breathe, it is like breathing through wet wool, OR even standing in the little sunlight does not warm you!! I plan on doing a lot of swimming in Lake Superior and Lake Michigan this coming week, I don't care if I have to auger through foot-thick ice!!

    It's been unseasonably cool too in our neck of the woods for most of August so far, but by the weekend we may start getting more summer-like temps - indeed the weather has been more early Fall-like!

    Wow, you too huh? It has been a very odd summer here in NE Ohio too. June was mild, July was very rainy and now August has a chill. These are my least favorite kinds of summer. Already looking forward to the next one and hoping that this winter is a mild one! PS I would've opted for the blanket too as I live with a den of polar bears who insist we run the air into late October. o.O Have a great Thursday!

    We had 50 this morning and it was so refreshing. Northern MN. had a record low of 31 this morning. Now that is something for August!! Stay warm.

    This sure has been an odd year for weather! I always enjoy sleeping in a cool room with a cozy blanket!
