One of the great things about living in our region is the variety of weather we get throughout the year, especially in the summer.  Not everybody in the United States is lucky enough to get occasional cool spells in the summer or at least a respite from scorching heat and heavy humidity.  Our current dose […]

Getting Ready for a Heat Wave This Week

In a year that has so far featured mostly temperate conditions to more or less cooler than normal weather it’s strange to think that we may be facing a long spell of heat in our weather picture in the not too distant future.  In other words, it appears that we may be experiencing a bit […]
