This summer has been very unusual in the weather department. This spring was very chilly. There were even a couple nights that were down near the freezing temperatures. No one thought it would ever warm up. This past two weeks have been very hot and humid; the humidity reminding me of Texas when I was growing up. Everyone gets thunderstorms from time to time but this year they seem to be more intense. We have had a couple power outages this year. One was quite lenghthy.
