The last few days it's been in the 100s here in Spokane. Today, we had humidity, overcast skies, and strong winds. Later in the afternoon, there were lightning strikes and downpours here and there. It cooled down 20 degrees in 2 hours...from 102 at 5 PM to 82 at 7 PM. I went out and filled my garbage can with small twigs and cones from the trees in our yard while talking to a friend on the phone. She was also talking from her front yard, and we both remarked on how good it felt outdoors in the 80s!
My dad e-mailed me earlier today and sent me the weather report from Colville - 108! Sheesh! It is supposed to be 103 tomorrow, with another chance of storms, then cool down into the 90s next week.
