A glimpse of fall

We are having the most amazing and perfect weather this weekend.

Normally in Virginia in July we have temperatures in the upper 80s to even as high as 100. The air can be so muggy that your clothes stick to you just on the walk from the air conditioned house to the air conditioned car. It's miserable when it's like this, but it helps us appreciate the crisp fall air all that much more.

So far this summer, it hasn't been that bad -- only a few truly hot days here and there. The humidity hasn't been as soul-sucking as usual.

And this weekend, we've had high temps of only 78 with nighttime lows in the upper 50s. Virtually no humidity either. It's just absolutely perfect. I enjoyed it today by sitting on the screened porch and reading the Sunday paper.

Perfect in every way and I wish it would stay until about October.

Amen Sister! Isn't it wonderful?! Almost freakish compared to the usually stifling humidity that comes standard with July & August in Virginia. Let's hope it continues! : )

I hear the weather was just marvelous from JB. I, on the other hand, spent the weekend in Texas in high humidity, swatting mosquitoes!

Will be returning to beautiful Va in just one week!
