where did the week go?????

By: NEwxguy , 1:34 PM GMT on July 25, 2011

As with all vacations,it was way too short.Just started relaxing around Thursday,and suddenly its Monday.
Spent Wednesday to Saturday on Cape Cod,and despite the extreme heat in most of New England,Friday was the only hot and sunny day down there.On Cape Cod,the best weather is when the winds are from the west and Northwest.When the winds come from the SW or South or East of the cooler waters it usually brings low clouds and fog and much cooler temps.Cape Cod has its own weather environment and can be so different then the rest of New England.We arrived and went right to the beach on Wednesday and it was hazy sun when we first got there,but then the wind picked up from the ocean,fog started rolling in and the temps dropped.Thursday was cloudy and very windy off the ocean and only in the 70's while the rest of New England was in the 90's.Friday was bright and sunn and in the low 90's with a westerly wind. Saturday we were going to stay on the beach until late in the day,but thunderstorms came rolling through mid day which cut our day short.So weatherwise it was a C,but I was away from this job,so the vacation was an A.
Expect a crazy day at work trying to catch up and 300 emails,but will stop by everyone to see whats been happening.

Looks like the storms are weakening as they move east,expecting just some rain showers,hopefully will be over by Redsox time,although still more showers in New York,so may impact the game tonight.

Hi NEw, (and Mass)
NEw, sounds like it was an ok vacation though weather was a bit goofy.

Lunch here and it has been just about on par with your Monday with car issues this morning, etc...for me. But, muddling through. Actually, I'm home now, carless for the rest of the day and any appts will have to wait until tomorrow.

Looks like you have storms. Hope they don't give you all too much grief.

bbl Welcome back!!!

Yeh,have been watching the radar and the radar has been getting worse as the morning progressed.The only saving grace may be that we have an east wind along the coast which may knock those storms down when they get near our area,will have to see. Wife is suppose to be going out to dinner with the girls from the office,will have to watch this closely.

Hi again NEw ~

Looks like we'll be paying some more weather dues later this afternoon or early evening. UGH! Hope you'll take care when driving home tonight even though it's a short distance. This looks to be nasty if it keeps its current strength and continues heading in an ESE direction.

Hi,Mass,I expected a colorful welcome back and you delivered. Thanks.As far as meditating and imagining back on the beach,I think I am still there. Got to my building this morning and had forgotten to take my laptop,so had to go back home,luckily not far from home. Then when I got back to the office got to the third floor and realized I had forgotten my access badge in the car,so back down to the garage.LOL,the mind does not want to come off of the beach.

Hey NEw ~

Sorry that the weather couldn't have cooperated more while on the Cape, but at least, the massive heatwave didn't stretch down there. Boy, 103 F degrees is not my cup of tea, in spite of being grateful that it's not the dead of winter or having tons of snow on the ground. The renovation guys actually worked until 3:30 pm the day of the heatwave (their call not ours), so we plied them with refrigerated spring water and use of the garden hoses.

How glorious the cool front felt last night after the sun went down!! It was so pleasant to finally be able to turn off the air-conditioner and fans for some much needed peace and quiet. 24/7 of constant racket can wear a person down.

Can't believe what a wonderful and thorough job our window installers have done. It might be the start to week three, but all that's left is the indoor trimwork and other odds and ends before being completely finished. Nevertheless, it's so exciting to be feeling like we're living in a whole new home!

Hope your work week doesn't grind you down to a pulp so that you can make it home in one piece to your lovely Mrs.! Try a little meditation at lunchtime. While you're eating your sandwich, think of yourself sitting on a sunny warm beach with the waves rolling in as you're doing so. Anything for a stress reliever!
