Yup – that’s right, that is the accumulative time that it has reached 80 degrees or higher this summer. Seventy eight whole minutes. Now I feel justified for complaining that it has been a crappy summer. Oh, and the best news, in 10-14 days the temperatures typically start cooling as our days get shorter and we near the end of our northwest summer. SWEET.


      NOOO! Seriously, I do not want shorter cooler days! Blech!
