99 Degree Fall

 Yesterday was a turning point.  Yesterday morning when I went to get the paper I could feel just the faintest hint of cool.  Instead of the dry, hot, make your contacts shrivel up and die breeze blowing in my face, it was a fresh, slightly refreshing breeze.  It was the first time since we moved here that it felt nice to be outside fully clothed and not in the swimming pool.  The clouds blocked out the sun and we actually had a few moments of precious rain.  It was so exciting that Hank came running and screaming as though he had just seen a steam locomotive roll through our backyard.  He screamed, "MOM, it's RAINING!!"  We all immediately ran outside to see if it was true!  It was!!  A rain dance of jubilee ensued!
Today's forecast is only 99 degrees!  It will be the first time in 45 days that the thermometer has not been triple digits.  It would have been 89 days if not for one beautiful cloudy day in July.  Yesterday was SO cool that I ventured to jog outside with Hank.  I actually enjoyed our run.  This morning Hailey and Max went mountain biking.  Really, 1 degree makes a difference?!  The real difference is in the overnight lows.  During the sweltering summer we had nights when the overnight low was in the 90s.  Disgusting.  Now we are dropping into the upper 70's.  This morning it was cooler outside than in our house!  JOY!

While I couldn't smell a crisp fall in the air, we all can feel a distinct change.  Even if it is only a degree.  It is a blessed degree that brings hopes of jeans, maybe even a long sleeve shirt, and the end of the continually running air conditioner.  A 99 degree fall.  Clearly we have heat exhaustion.  No one in their right mind could put 99 degrees and fall in the same sentence.  Such is your state of mind in the desert...

wow...89 days?! That is insane! Yes, it's all relative I guess. You will be enjoying temperatures in the 70s and 80s before long! Yay!
