It's Sizzling Outside

It has been hot. 

Summertime hot! The kind of hot that I look forward to during the summer. 

The hot that envelops me as I step outside after working in a sterile air conditioned building all day. It is a damp hot that I look forward to stepping into as I walk down the hallway at the end of the day.

Twelve of the past thirteen days have been in the 90's with Monday touching 100 depending upon the thermometer being used. But, the hot is soon to be gone. Today is forecast to be 5 degrees cooler than yesterday and soon the highs will be in the 80s instead of the 90s. 

Perhaps the heat is breaking and is over.

We have had three BGE saving days where they pay me not to use electricity. 

It is the dog days after all. I see rain in the forecast and we definitely could use some rain, my lawn is losing its green.

I realized that I am usually in Florida during the hottest days in Maryland, but not so this year. 

Hopefully, the summer will continue warm and supportive of outdoors activities.
