I donâ€™t want to jinx this, but itâ€™s been a relatively mild summer so far in Wisconsin. Weâ€™ve had our air conditioning on, but only occasionally. Weâ€™re just getting into the bad months, however, so I expect it to be much worse. Until now itâ€™s been a mix of pleasant, wonderful, and downright terrible. Not too much terribleâ€”more pleasant with glimpses of wonderful.
Iâ€™ve spent more time outside this summer than any since I was a child. Will the heat waveâ€”which Iâ€™m sure is forthcomingâ€”stop that? I hope not. I enjoy the outdoors more with each year.
