Local meteorologists are saying that this cool down will probably be permanent, and temperatures reaching into the 80s will be few and far between. I’m hoping that they’re wrong although I love the 70s. This has been a strange August. We are usually baking in high temperatures, high humidity, and high dew points. This year has been an exception. We received a little rain overnight which we really needed, and I see that northern Michigan did also. They were really dry up there with conditions ripe for wildfires. Hopefully they got enough to do some good. We got 0.18 in . . . . . not a lot but better than none.
