7 days in a row with temperatures greater than 95 degrees.
The driest August on record (so far – 4 days to go with no rain predicted).
The summer tears across the Midwest like a thunderstorm – loud and dangerous, and you never know when you will end up with nasty weather.
But it also went fast. I walk and ride my bike as exercise and this summer was tough – but it went by so fast. Part it was with my new job there is much more “summer” work between the two big yearly events and this year was less time than normal. Still the summer seemed to fly by.
Part of it is the anticipation of the new technologies coming Kinect and Windows 7 phone. Those two game changing events are going to be really big this holiday season. The other part I suspect has to do with the kids being older and not needing as much supervision as they did in years past.
It will be a fall to remember!
