Good morning everyone. The hot weather of this past week has finally broken as a weak cold front passed over the state of Maine last night. Thankfully the temperature this morning is a much more comfortable 43 degrees so I can type without breaking a sweat. Every window in the house is wide open. We are still trying to cool off.
Escape the Heat
So my question to both of the people reading this is, if it is this hot now how are you ever going to cool off this summer? I have the same answer the big cruise ships advertise. Escape to the islands. The islands of Maine that is. When I drove in to the boat yesterday I was hit by a wall of cool air as I crested the hill just a few blocks from the harbor. The temperature must have dropped a good 20 degrees and the relief was palpable, still t-shirt and shorts weather as far as I am concerned. Of course, it is 43 degrees with all the windows open so take that from whence it comes. All the same, I think it is going to be a barn burner this summer so pack your duffle bags and escape to the islands of Maine. But don’t expect the natives to say “Ya mahn”, just “ayuh”.
By the away, how hot did it get this week where you live? I know we set some records here in Maine. How about your town?
