Wednesday Weather report #59 - 7/4/18

Today's report is a tale of being unprepared...

June:  69 - 73 - 82 - 86 F
July: 92 - 88 - 83 F

We finished out the month of June on a temperature upswing and started July with the hottest of hot days. The record in Rochester for Sunday was 96 - not sure if we beat it but we were super close.

The first problem came in that after a 2017 summer that was mostly orange/70s and never above red/80s, I hadn't yet bought maroon grunge fabric, assuming we couldn't possibly get into the 90s this early in the year. Guess I was really wrong on that fact. Oopsies.

And then, when I went to finish out what I could at lunch on Tuesday to schedule this post for Wednesday, I didn't have enough red rectangles with me. Can you believe that in just the first 33 days this quilt already has more red days than the entire 2017-2018 quilt??!!

I'll be buying maroon grunge on Friday and I'll post an updated/completed photo next week.
Gotta run...lunch is almost over!

Interesting! I guess that's an advantage of making another one - you get a more complete picture of the possible variability.

What color for temps in the 100's? A78mandel at yahoo dot com

From the 60's to the 90's in just a few days! I'm using more red (90's) this year than last.

This will be a very different quilt from last year in more ways than one. It will be interesting to compare the two quilts. Do you think you will make a temp. quilt each year now?

What Janet said! Hey, it might be helpful to post the temp/color scale again, or maybe share a link to it??! :)
