It's been too hot in Maine recently. On Sunday it was 88 degrees with 95% humidity. That is totally unacceptable to me, but not unexpected.
I know, I know, some of you have had over 200 degrees and 195% humidity - and in summers past we have had that, too, even in the years when we were told that another Ice Age was imminent. Please don't tell me you don't remember that. If you do, you are too young, and you probably have air conditioning and not fans!

We've had summers when it rained EVERY weekend, starting on Wednesday. We've had summers when things dried up and blew away to look for rain. We've had flooding and hurricanes, earthquakes and tornadoes, blizzards and ice storms causing loss of power for a week or more. These are not everyday occurrences, but they do happen and have happened off and on over the past 60 years of MY recorded history.

Meanwhile, I'm officially beginning preparations for December.
I'm going to go find my mittens and boots.
I'm ready for winter's predictable unpredictability now.
Bring. It. On.
I promise not to complain.
