The hot weather continues, already 23C, humid, no air moving, a bit of haze, to warm up towards 30C again today and tomorrow. A change in conditions forecast for Monday, showers and lower temps, folks probably accept the change without too much comment.

Lawn requires attention, lower field finally dry enough to get on, more like a hayfield than a lawn. Upper portion requires a clipping, a combination of sun and all the rain certainly has brought it too life.

First morning Rob not on the road before 0600, will be going for rockweed once tide gets up a bit. Emily off on the weekend.

....you could go outside, the mosquitos came out in droves.

Did they sound like old B52 bombers, chunks? lol

We've got the same problem down here, with all the rain we've had.

My summer signature scent is "Eau de Off."

Dear Rob:

It is 30 degrees here already. Yesterday was so desperate you could not stand it. When the sun finally went down, and you could go outside, the mosquitos came out in droves. BLARG.

I will be more than glad when this breaks. Give me cooler temps any day. At least you can do something.

Cody out the door for his turn at Saturday working - at 6:30 and Sarah out at 9:00. She pulled cookhouse duty today. Can you imagine.

Talking briefly to Laurie, at the research station, and she says they have seen humpbacks, fins, and minks in the bay already. No right whales, They have gone out to the basin edge but could not spot any there either. Met and had tea with a chap from Bermuda yesterday. He is somewhat of the grey whale expert. He may take a trip over to go out with Laurie, time permitting.

Have a great day and stay cool - somehow.

Word.

Morning, Rob.

You are getting a bit warm and humid.

With all the rain we've been having, our yard is beginning to look like a hayfield, too. Hubby just mowed earlier in the week but I can barely see the doves gleaning dropped seed underneath the feeder.

Got the wash going and hope to get it on the line and dried without having to dash out and gather it in, still damp. It's sunny at the moment but the forecast is calling for scattered showers and T-storms again today.

Glad to hear that your Canada Day festivities went off without a hitch and the weather cooperated.

Hubby and I had a quiet Fourth. We stayed home, ate BBQ sandwiches, coleslaw, etc and watched TV. There were several concerts being aired, as well as firework displays. Sure beat fighting traffic, crowds and mosquitos that would have been required to see them in person.
