Thanks, Meadbh.

As for Tropical Storm Lee, in my area it seems to have completely fizzled. Right now it is just drizzling, with barely a light breeze if that. As they said on the local news just now, "In New Orleans, we just had to put up with a rainy day" (and the rest is all hype, w.r.t. New Orleans anyway).

Here's hoping that T.S. Lee doesn't clobber those in other states.

Are home trampolines safe?
Nope. American kids don't bounce any differently than Canadian ones. Had a kid with a tib/fib fracture a couple of weeks ago after bouncing off one. About the only thing worse in my mind are ATV's .

It's Labor Day. Summers over. I woke up to the sounds of birds flying south. Low 40's, 30's 100 miles north.

76 degrees here and we have all the doors and windows open, with cool gusty breezes racing through the house to air it out...... Love this cold front!

It dropped from the 90s on Sunday into the 60s here right now. Very fall-like. I think I would in general like a little less volatility, in the stock market, the economy, and the weather

I think W2R sent her tropical storm up my way.
I've got high winds and tons of rain in central Alabama.
But should be out of here in the next 6 to 8 hours if I'm looking at the radar sites correctly.
I'm pushing it to the new England area, or just about anyway I can get it to go.
Looking forward to some mid to high 70 degree days the rest of the week.
Lots better than the high 90's I've been dealing with.
Steve

I wouldn't be surprised if you were getting more rain and wind than we did, Steve. Take care, and I hope it moves on soon.

From the reports around my area, I guess we are pretty lucky so far.
Still got power, TV and internet. Enjoyed a nice indoor cooked meal today, so all is well at this point.
Thanks W2R,
Steve

Bummer. I guess I won't be riding the bike much during the next week.

The folks in Texas won't have much sympathy.

110 yesterday, 106 today in Phoenix. But mornings are cool in the low 90's. We're heading north to Sedona to escape the heat for a couple of days.

We actually got down to 52บ when I woke up this morning. But I'd be willing to take the triple-digit heat again if we'd just get some damn rain.

Anyone in Florida have a room they want to rent?

I suspect we will not have to wait too long to see triple digits again, as for rain that is another matter

No more triple digits this year in VA, though I'm sure it will hit 90 again. Right now we are between deluges. Probably no sun until Friday. No flooding in the NorthWest part of the state, but that's probably not the case in other parts.

I wonder how we'll do with the rapid transition from 60 degrees here to 100 degrees in Nevada and Utah. I hope that drinking a lot of water/electrolytes will be enough. Jenny will have a big biking advantage, coming from "heat dome" Kansas City.
