It was hot this morning when I got up. I didn’t have to go outside to know. The windowpane was very warm and the air was heavy. It was shaping up to be one of those triple H days: hot, humid, and hazy. That’s typically summer in New England. I haven’t turned on the air conditioning except for one afternoon in May.
Otherwise, we’ve been okay with the cross ventilation we’ve gained with our new windows plus a couple of fans, a very small one in the bedroom and a taller one in the living room.
It has been very dry this month. We had one day of rain and since then, a shower here, a shower there. No rain over a whole town much less the state or region. I think are called “scattered showers” for a reason. We got about 10 minutes of downpour with thunder, then another half hour of light rain, and then the sun came back
It dried the air and cooled everything down, so when I finally went outside, it was very comfortable and the flowers looked happy. Nothing does it for them like real rain.
