It feels more like fall than late summer. Our thermometer this morning showed 51 degrees F. but it wouldn't surprise me if the low last night was evencooler than that.
This is August! It's supposed to muggy and hot! Sweltering! Global warming is happening elsewhere this year for we've had "perpetual spring" instead of "summer". Iowa has had the coolest July on record. And it wouldn't surprise me if we have a record cool August as well.
This has been exceedingly pleasant to bear. Not a soul is complaining! On the other hand the mild season has, if nothing else, affected the tomatoes in our gardens. They've not done well. Everyone's plants are doing the same, browning and dying of wilt from the bottom up. Tomatoes falling on the ground. I've been able to can a good supply, but am sad that the plants didn't do better.
Strange summer weather for Iowa.
On another topic...we celebrated hubby's birthday last evening with two daughters and their families present. Good food! Good company! Good time!
