Highs & Lows

Wow, it’s been HOT for the last few weeks.  Thankfully a cold front came through at about 5 pm tonight, bringing cooler air and a short downpour.

The pic on the left is from our indoor/outdoor weather station at 4pm.  105.6 outside.  The pic on the right is from about 2 1/2 hours later, after the front blew through.  The temp had dropped by almost 20 degrees.   I wonder if this is the end of the triple digit temps for the year.

The weather station also shows inside temperature and records the 24-hour min/max below each of the inside and outside temps.   You can see that the max for inside temp today was 84 degrees.   That was about 2 pm today when the old A/C unit seemed to just stop blowing cold air and it got very hot and stuffy in the house.     I turned it off for a while to give it a rest and started it 30 minutes later.   I’m very glad that it kicked back on.   I fear a new A/C unit is in our near future… but we’ll see.

I’m very happy for a break from the heat, no matter how short.
