COOL!

When I say "cool", I'm talking about the temperature. At the risk of making my friends and family in the South insanely jealous, I've gotta tell you that our HIGH temp today is 72 degrees...and we haven't even reached it yet. It is so nice outside right now. It's hovering around 64 degrees, and feeling much like fall. We'll be back in the 80s this weekend, so it's short-lived, but I'm enjoying the cool while it lasts! Wish I could bottle this cool air and send it to Arkansas! *sigh*

Ah, sounds like heaven to me right now! We're in the 90's and I was outside earlier, sweating like an Arkansas piggie, LOL!

Have a great day and enjoy your great weather :)

Phooey. Jonesboro just had a thundershower and the temps had fallen from 96* to 76* earlier, but it's back up to 82* now. We never saw a drop of rain here in Bay and it's still over 90*.

It's supposed to be a bit "cooler", only around 90* for the next couple of days. Then back up into the mid to upper 90's.

Fall is still a good ways off for us, but I'm glad you're getting a taste of it now. :-)

If you could bottle it and send some of that cooler weather here to Arkansas, I'd sure be glad to get it.

Love and hugs,

Diane

I'm with Stacey--I am so jealous--I absolutely can not wait for the first cool day. Enjoy your cool weather--and think of we poor southerners who are still melting in the heat.

I like being able to send my kids to school without a jacket to worry about, but it did feel more like "back to school" in Idaho where it cooled down (some). Now I miss it. Wait til you see me crying for snow at Christmas!
On the other hand, we're driving 6 hours to visit Mike's mom tomorrow (instead of flying all day) and my Mom is driving 3 hours to see us in a week! So I'm not complaining...

ACK! Gosh I miss the cooler weather. I'd be happy to bottle up some of the heat & humidity in Arkansas and send it to you in exchange for some of your bottled Colorado weather! ;)

I'm making a trip to Wyoming in October to see my mom ~ I'm hoping it will be cool there, with maybe some snow on the mountains but not at the lower elevations. I've been tossing around the idea of driving down to Colorado while I'm there, but I think the trip would be too long and too hard on my mom. :( One of these days though....

Oh! Actually, while I'm thinking about it ~ Mere, are you interested in taking the kids skiing/snowboarding in March? Our niece is having her wedding reception on Feb 29 in Denver. We're planning on taking Sawyer snowboarding that weekend. Wouldn't that be a great thing for us to meet IRL and do together?! :)

Blessings,
Trish

Boy, 72 degrees. If only it would get that warm... Send over that warm sun here!

You're right...you made me jealous. We're enjoying a cool down too in SE Alabama. This week the high is in the 90s instead of the 100s! Yuk...miss those mild mountain breezes!

I'm in Pittsburgh this weekend for my nephew's wedding. Topping out at 82 marvelous degrees. Warmth without the humidity.
