Cloudy and 77F / 25C, pretty much at our high for the day. Chance of showers.

Had a nice 5K race this morning, and heading to a family picnic later on. Tonight: Likely leftovers from Thursday evening.

Have a great Saturday and a Happy 4th of July for my friends here in the US!

Already a warm morning 77F, headed to the mid 90s. We're having about 35 people over for a cookout and to watch the fireworks from our deck. The trip over to the Oaks last night, dinner at our friend Bradley's house and then a moonlight boat ride toward town to see the show. It was great fun, but I would not want to be one to drive the boat after dark!

Tomorrow a cookout at our realtor's house with more friends!

Should be a great day. Clouds and sunshine all in the same day, with temps around mid 80's. Nice to have a Friday off to end the work week. Following up on some week's loose ends.

Happy Friday! I've got the day off and cleaning house is #1 on the agenda. We've got a few errands to run before the holiday tomorrow. A bunch of people are coming to celebrate the 4th, we are smoking some tri-tip, and everyone is bringing a side dish. We'll watch the fireworks from our deck. It's great to see the explosions reflected in the water.

It's already 78 headed to a high of 96 today. Tomorrow is supposed to be the same.

At least it won't be triple digits today - forecast high is just 98F. Currently 73F, it didn't cool off last night as much as it usually does. Still, a beautiful morning!

Last work day before the 3-day weekend!

It's pleasant this morning, no breeze at all, about 72.

Just two more work days this week! WOOHOO!

Temps today are expected to hit 95. It will be dry. Our basement is drying and this should help things along. We have a remediation specialist to give us an evaluation and estimate of what it will take to return our basement back to us.
Can't believe how wicked my spins were today. An incredible 25/25. Unheard of!

The days are starting to get shorter, a minute at a time. There is something beautiful about that moment just before sunrise.

The lake is smooth with very slight ripples and looks like iridescent ribbons lying next to each other on the bias.

It's supposed to be hot today and hotter tomorrow. Projected high today: 103F. It's currently 70 and very still. It will be warming up quickly today.

Mostly sunny and hazy, 73F / 23C, dew point back up to 72F, heading to the mid 80's with a chance of storms later on.

On tap for today: Goatee coloring, run, pay bills, job search, and office organization. Tonight: No leftovers in the house, so we may be going out for dinner. Depends on the weather.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

It's a little cooler this morning, only 68, heading to a high in the mid 90s. Our brief cooling trend is over for now.

The thermometer outside reads 76, and the high is supposed to be 91, but we are headed to San Francisco where the high is only going to be 67!!!

I have always loved the SF summer.

Sunny and a very pleasant 73F / 23C, dew point is at 73F but it should drop during the day, heading to the mid 80's.

On tap for today: grocery shopping, long run (7.5 miles), shopping this afternoon for a pair of greyhound statues that someone told DW about, and watch the NASCAR road race in Sonoma. Tonight: Grilling some special sausage and pairing it with some pasta / red sauce and a good salad.

Have a great Sunday gents!

A little cooler today - the forecast is only 93 today. Yesterday my car said 111 when I was leaving work. I think that was just because it was sitting in the sun. It dropped down to 102 once I got on the road. It will be nice to have a cooler day or two.

I don't believe the low temperatures. Our thermometer outside reads 74 at 6:25am, and it really didn't cool down much last night. I miss the cool nights - even San Francisco has been warmer than usual.

I'm super excited that it's Friday. I'm working on a resume and cover letter for a job at the local community college that I'm really interested in. I hate thinking about a different job after just 3 months in this one, but I am not finding non-profit work to be a good fit for me. I love the mission of the organization, but tired of the anxiety of worrying about the next grant when I have no control over the fundraising.

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Cloudy and 68F / 20C, heading to the upper 70's with a chance of rain later on. Much better chances on Saturday.

Yesterday was another one of those crazy days where I was totally focused on two things: 1) Getting out internet and phone service up and running again; 2) Getting the grass mowed. The internet / phone issue started on Tuesday when I called Comcast and asked about getting a promotional deal after my monthly bill went up $25. Well, the sales person found me a deal, but what she forgot to inform me is that I would lose my phone service and my internet speed would drop! Eventually it just died, a combination of wire issues at the pole + cable modem going south! Thankfully everything (except my wireless printer) is back up and running.

House cleaning on tap for today, as we have company coming later this afternoon, interval run, and talk to my brother (estate conversation). Tonight: dinner out.

TGIF gents!

Much nicer day weather-wise here on the Delmarva -- 79F / 26C, dew point at a much more tolerable 64F, may climb into the low 80's before the day is done. Got lots of wind and .75 of rain last night. No damage here, but heard in Northern Delaware lots of downed trees, etc.

DW worked from home today, so we "slept in" until 06:15! Lots of potential jobs to apply for, so was busy with that most of the morning, then a trip to the bank, Sam's Club, and then the Y. Have a few more to-do's for this afternoon. Tonight: We'll either finish our leftovers or get take-out. Depends on our mood!

Have a great rest of your Wednesday gents!

Sunny, humid, and 82F / 28C, dew point at an oppressive 77F, heading to the mid 90's with heat index well into the 100's with severe storms in the forecast for later on.

Decided to be smart and got and ran early (06:40) this morning to beat the heat. It was still warm enough -- 77F and dew point the same! The washing machine has been getting a workout with all the sweat drenched clothes I've been feeding it!

On tap for the rest of today: job search, investigate a letter that my brother got from the IRS regarding back taxes my dad owes, visit from my friends at Comcast to investigate a bunch of internet outages I had yesterday (maybe a line issue?), and some puttering around the house. Tonight: leftovers again, and with sever storms in the forecast, good to be inside anyway.

Have a terrific Tuesday gents!

Same old.... 60s headed to 90s, another summer day in Clearlake.

Got to leave early to take Steve to class. Sherman has a dental appointment at 10am, so I get to come home and pick him up to take him to the vet.

Beautiful cool morning about 60, high of 89 predicted. Not too hot. I like that!

Steve's truck goes to the body shop for the next couple days, so I'll be chauffeured to and from work so he can use the Prius to get to class.

Have a great week!

Sunny, a bit less humid, and 78F / 26C, heading towards the 90 degree mark today.

On tap for today: job search, waiting on UPS to make a delivery (signature required), strength training after UPS arrives, and of course trying to organize my office. It got worse last week after my brother send some of my mom and dad's stuff!

Tonight: leftovers for sure! Our fridge is FULL!

Have a good work week gents!

64F and partly cloudy at 7 am in Utica, MI, headed to an afternoon high of 84 with thunderstorms, some could be severe.
I was going to get some time in at the range after work, looks like that won't happen.

Some clouds, although not as overcast as it was earlier this morning, 81F / 27C, heading to the mid 90's with heat index going over 100F!

In spite of the temps, I am going out for a long run shortly (7 miles), although it will a slow pace. I may go up to the park nearby so I can do some trail running in the shade. Made breakfast earlier this morning, as DW was not feeling 100% (she thinks it was that 2nd margarita she has last night!)

Meeting my inlaws for dinner.

Have a great Sunday, 1st day of summer for those you in the northern hemisphere (1st day of winter for all of you down south!), and a happy Father's Day!

It was a great day in Sacramento today - with temps in the high 90s. We had so much fun, but my parents aren worn out!

Cloudy and a steamy 80F / 27C, heading to the mid 80's with storms later and overnight.

Slept for 9 hours last night! That's a long time for me!

On tap for today: house cleaning, mow the back 40 if the storms hold off, and an early Father's Day dinner with my daughters.

Have a great Saturday gents!
