Did you miss me last week? I spent 10 days in my favorite Adirondack Mountains where the weather was both hot and cold. I'm trying to get a post together for next week...
First is the week that finished while I was camping:
75 - 80 - 84 - 73 - 80 - 92 - 74 F
That Monday where it was 92? Yeah I was hiking. Ugh. I had tried to talk myself out of it but then someone said oh just get up early so you can finish early and it will be fine.
Well... I kinda got up early, didn't account for the long drive there (half on a washboard dirt road) nor did I count on the almost vertical climb for the last mile of the 3 mile hike. And I am not the fastest climber to begin with, being an overweight asthmatic with a formerly Cranky Ankle to look out for. Anyway, after reaching the top, taking some time to rest, eat lunch and do a few hexies, take a climb up the fire tower and a hike back down to the car, the afternoon was half over, let alone going back down that awful dirt road.
This high was followed by a quick thunderstorm which helped drop the temps for the next two days.
66 - 75 - 79 - 80 - 81 - 80 - 74 F
The low for the week was 44 Thursday morning - it was great sleeping weather but I didn't get to enjoy it otherwise as I was sick as a dog. Bummer cuz it was perfect weather to go hiking.
The month so far has been quite warm which makes that one cool day stick out like a very sore thumb.
I especially get a kick out of seeing June and July together. Saturday I'm doing my annual hexie demo at the local farmers' market. They really got a kick out of the start of last year's temp quilt so I hope they will enjoy the finished year 1 and start of year 2 just as much.
How's your weather been??
