My competitive side was really disappointed by the cooler weather yesterday. Yes, I was excited to stand outside in the middle of the afternoon and smell the rain and feel the cooler temp, but it would have been nice to have bragging rights for the longest stretch of 100+ degree days. We were less than 40 hours from the record. We had already endured 41 days of the stuff, we were so close. Notice I said, smell the rain. We did not even get rain as a consolation prize for falling short of the record. We did not get a decent repreave from the 100+ temps either. Today we got to start over. Day 1!
Don’t get me wrong. I am not wishing to go 43 more days with 100+ temps just to get the record, but failing to win the prize when we were so close. Such a bummer.
