I don’t want to jinx this, but it’s been a relatively mild summer so far in Wisconsin. We’ve had our air conditioning on, but only occasionally. We’re just getting into the bad months, however, so I expect it to be much worse. Until now it’s been a mix of pleasant, wonderful, and downright terrible. Not too much terrible—more pleasant with glimpses of wonderful.

I’ve spent more time outside this summer than any since I was a child. Will the heat wave—which I’m sure is forthcoming—stop that? I hope not. I enjoy the outdoors more with each year.
