Out and About



Depending on their mood (apparently), sometimes Brothers Lightning and Thunder, and Brother Wind, of course, sweep through the landscape just for fun, leaving behind a soggy mess. Other times, they pick up the weather and take it with them, which is what happened Sunday. The pattern of severe heat and oppressive humidity finally broke after six unrelenting weeks. Yesterday it was "only" 90, not too humid. It was a perfect summer day and though I had a lot going on, I did sneak in a decent walk between a gig at the yoga studio and my afternoon clients.

There's hardly anything better than a nice walk on a clear, not too hot, summer day. Oh man. The people who have the nerve to predict these things are saying today will be a repeat of yesterday. It's my day off, I have no plans. The day stretches ahead, unformed, full of possibility. My camera battery is charged up, I know where my sunglasses are. I'm going to get out there today. Oh yeah.

Thanks Brothers, for cleaning up after yourselves this time around. Thank you!!

The brother's are teasing us over here in Phoenix. The clouds are hanging around but refusing to give us the gift of rain. I was out running errands yesterday and it was 104 and muggy. I'm hoping for a cleansing today. My "walk" will be inside on the treadmill, but I'll be looking out the window at least.

Still hot, humid and mosquitoey here. But at least we are now cool in the house!

Oh have a wonderful, beautiful day. Keep that rain stick nice and quiet today.

I know that I'm ridiculously superstitious. I know. Which is why I left the rainstick at work. I didn't even want to carry it home yesterday. For heaven's sake.

It has been a perfect morning after, sweet cool air. I got up very early and went outside to read and enjoy. Have an excellent day!

I'm kind of amazed at how many different parts of the country have been having storms lately - including my own usually dry corner.

Nothing more miraculous than two of those D.C. days in a row.

You can send the rainstick my way! I loved going back and catching up with your posts and pics of Chateau 7. Lovely.

is that supposed to be a joke, or did someone really do a #2 there? thanks, really, for cleaning up that, brother weather!

Trees fell on houses and the power is still out for many in this city. It was a seriously fierce storm.

Here on Capitol Hill, our power lines are underground so weather rarely has an impact on our access to power.

Tom you would have actually ENJOYED being here today. It's so sad that Tami's summer adventure happened this summer. It's so unfair.
