August 2, 2006. We’re well into a long set of days with middle 90s temperatures and liquid humidity. Nasty is the descriptive word. Thank goodness the football team isn’t working out this week…

So, to cheer us all up, I thought I’d just pull out a photo from last winter…a little snow at Caleb Mills House. Looks pretty good right now. Of course, this winter we’ll be asking for the good old hot days of summer.

When I told Peter Pactor last night about the heat, that was his response: "At least you don’t have to shovel it." I think he’s been in Fort Worth too long!

For you gee whiz folks – the heat index in Bar Harbor Maine got all the way up to 82 degrees yesterday.
