Weather is cool. Today we can take that literally. With the maximum temperature for the day at just 39 degrees, it has been a rather chilly last day of June. After a week spent in the hot, humid Great Lakes region, it would be an egregious lie to say I’m not thoroughly enjoying the refreshing breeze of 35 mph, the crisp temperatures, and being a little cold when I venture outside. All I kept thinking was today would be a perfect day to hike.
Woe fails to grip me though, as I sit and gaze out the window. Why? Well, it could be the 100 mile visibility. It could be the fact that I know I wouldn’t really enjoy hiking after such a long day. The main reason is because from the weather room, I get the most amazing view of the most awe-inspiring weather. A shortwave trough swinging across the region triggered a few rain showers, which we all got to watch approach from the northwest. Happy Wednesday everyone!
