Here in Portland, Oregon today - cool, a bit gloomy and 53 degrees F.

I'm fine with that, dry roads for next 7 days or so, so good there. And our summer was sizzling hot and made national headlines with two days back to back - 116 degrees, and then next day at 111 degrees. We have central A/C - but I ordered a large portable unit from Costco to supplement the main living room. And I am glad I did, even with the portable unit and central air thermostat set to 70 degrees it got to 73 in the house at peak heat of the day, which is 5PM.

But that 73 degrees felt 'chilly' after going outside to observe how hot it was. Many of if not most of our patio planter plants did not survive the sudden onset of the heat and blazing sun.

Glad to have it cool - and should remain this way, until it starts to then rain - for like 8 months, non-stop.

Cheers,
Merlin

It's colder than usual for this time of year, and also a warehouse burned down close to me, so the sky is now darker because of the smoke

Absolutely spiffing weather at 24c, sun's blazing down and going for another bike ride then a dip in the pool.

Tomorrow's forecast is 100F. A small heatwave. It's also the first day of fall tomorrow.

Chamber of commerce weather here all week so far! Mid-70's (F) and mostly sunny. Breezy right now, though. Oh, and the first wisps of yellow/orange are starting to show on the trees outside my prison cell window, which is fitting since fall officially starts here in less than an hour.....

60-70s here right now in missouri. this summer wasn't too bad. been thinking of moving though, mainly to get winter and rain out of my life so i can't enjoy my sports cars more. Arizona seems like a good candidate with a reasonable cost of living and housing. though i've heard stepping outside in prime summer is the same as opening an oven door.

Chilly here this morning. 45F. Warming into the mid-60's later with sunshine. Time for a long ride this afternoon if I can deal with the damn wind.

Currently at Bethany Beach and Ocean City. Beautiful weather in the low 70's with a slight breeze and lots of sun.
