  1. We’ve had from the 40’s at night to the 80’s during the day this week, which is a blessed respite from this summer’s high of 118 degrees here in the high desert of Antelope Valley, CA. Send us some rain, please?!?

  2. We’re still in summer weather, here in Baton Rouge. High 80’s, high humidity, lots of sunshine. But, I think I’m the only one that loves this, most people are begging for that cold front.
