Around the house and lawn
It's not even 9 o'clock in the morning and it is already almost 70 degrees outside. The record high for today is 68 degrees and I think we already busted it. We set a new record high for yesterday too. It's been super hot and sunny for over a week now and it looks like it will continue. There is a HUGE high over the State of Alaska and it is keeping all the lows and rainstorms at bay - they feel the high pressure and just skirt around the state.
We've been spending a lot of time on the lawn reading books and even eating dinner. It almost makes it seem worthwhile to mow the lawn. Now that it is nearly summer the sun is coming up before 6AM and bathing the house with light. We eat breakfast in the sunshine. By evening the sun is on the other side of the house and it does not set until almost 10:30 PM.
Next week I'll be in the field doing an archaeological survey. Let's hope the weather stays the same!
