Even snowmen, who will not be around next month, are social distancing.

It's in the low 50s and rainy. It's cold enough to see my breath as I worked in the yard.

The light is pretty.

We're having a heat wave; out in a t-shirt (accessorized with rainbow suspenders). 5:30 pm and bright and sunny. Cat's been laying out in the sunbeam for solar-thermal power to his sable pelt.

Nicer day today, expecting bee traffic. The place is pretty muddy for my lumber project so things might be on hold a little while.

Hot Town, Summer in the Arctic

Verkhoyansk, Siberia, first place above the Arctic Circle to ever reach 100 F that we know of.
Caribou, Maine, tied an all-time record at 96 F.

For reference, Miami, Florida has only hit 100 F once since 1896.

This the place with the widest range of low-high temps anywhere on Earth. I think I read their local record low is -90F. Their new high is 100.something above. The place is wack-a-doo.

A very short time ago, there were almost no photographs of red sprites, let alone good owns.
Different conditions? Better cameras? More folks looking?
