Yesterday was the first day since (I can't be bothered to look back through the posts but probably April or May) that I didn't have to turn either the a/c or the heater, all day long and even though I had the oven on in the afternoon. Not so today - the heater's on to warm the bathroom up before I get in the shower ready for work.

I turned off the A/C and opened windows on my way out the door this morning. I could easily have done so yesterday, at least yesterday evening.

I had the windows open on Monday. The first time I've been able to get some fresh air in the place since whenever it was.

It used to take two cold fronts to completely wash away the summer. We've had (at least) three so far and we're still looking at temperatures in the 90s for the weekend. It won't be too long before the weather here really starts to look like that summer/summerer/christmas graphic.

That's three days in a row the average of the day's high and low temperatures have been below the seasonal average. It won't happen today. Today (and tomorrow) we might break, or at least equal, the high temperature record. Still, at least this morning I should be able to go to work in shirtsleeves instead of a jacket, and not be sweltering in the hot sun - in a jacket - when I come home this evening, because it's 17° warmer right now than it was this time yesterday.

I slept through the rain as the front came through between 3am and 4am (bringing temperatures down from 80 to 67), the same rain that's currently drenching Houston. Another, stronger, front arrives on Thursday. Could this be the week we finally say goodbye to summer?

I certainly hope that next front moves through on Thursday. I'm heading back to TRF this weekend. I don't mind a few scattered showers, but I'd like any downpours to be over with by Friday afternoon.
