"One of the brightest gems in the New England weather is the dazzling uncertainty of it."---Mark Twain, speech to New England Society, Dec. 1876.
A tropical storm is roaring up the East Coast delivering weather equal to the worst August dog days. The humidity is relentless. We were going to take the air conditioners out and prepare for winter and now we are glad we didn't. As my late grandmother would say, "it's thick today."
This pair of mourning doves is always hanging about the deck and apparently oblivious to the heat and humidity. They like to sleep in the sun and are often on the hot roof top as well.
Tomorrow night it will plunge into the 40's and possibly into the 30's Sunday night. Such is New England weather: shorts and sandals today...flannel nightgown tomorrow night!
Is it just me or has the week flown by? What plans do you have? We will go to soccer games and perhaps become leaf-peepers over the weekend, too.
Have a happy weekend and as always,
