What happened to my hot weather?

On Sunday, the temperature dropped by about ten degrees. It was like someone unplugged the power for our Okanagan summer. While just about everyone around us was rejoicing for the milder weather, I was not amused.

Wearing a sweatshirt while biking into work IN AUGUST is not my idea of summer weather.

Oh well. At least the dog is more comfortable. This is probably the ideal weather for her. I wouldn't complain if it wasn't such a shock. I like a more gradual change, I guess.

On a different note, I have added a lot of blues to my regular playlist at work. Stevie Rae Vaughn, Muddy Waters, Howlin' Wolf, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King and even some Ella Fitzgerald. I dunno, sometimes I just like some blues in the background.

I can't wait for the hot weather to be over. Here in Michigan, when it's summer, we want winter. When it's winter, we want summer. It may just be my voice saying that... What's it like up north in Canada?

I really enjoy your blog, I'll keep checking it out.
