When it breaks

The high yesterday was a wonderful 80!

And it will be that way for the rest of the week!

To understand how much of a relief this is, you have to realize that we’ve had a crazy hot record breaking summer here.

We’ve had more days over 100 this summer than any other year in history except one during the dust bowl, and that’s only 2 more days off from being hit.

We’ve had 3 days over 110 this summer. I can only even remember about 3 previous days of hitting that level ever.

And the heat has kept up this way since the end of May. We pretty much skipped spring here.

And so now… it’s 80 degrees. For a high, instead of that being the lows as it has been several weeks.

The windows are all open, and were left open all night to bask in the cool of 65 degrees that the air conditioners could have never created. (They were doing good to be able to keep it 80… and even that required running non-stop).

The cool front has been such a relief…. like a fever that has finally broken.

Like you can finally breathe again outside without feeling like the life is being sucked out of you.

Soo so glad for the closer to fall-ish weather.

(And also a bit hopeful for the day when other stresses break and share just as sweet of an abrupt release.)
