So, you took these pictures while out biking? Impressive!

PS. Never mind. I saw the source of the photos. Still you may be close enough to see with own eyes.

Yeah, hard to get aerial photos on the bike.

We had a major thunder and lightning storm last night with rain and wind. This afternoon it's raining cats and dogs.

And to think I moved here for the weather LOL!

Just got back from a 60 mile bike ride. Bright sunshine, brilliant blue sky and just cool enough that it was slightly chilly at times up in the mountains and on a 5 mile, 2000' descent back to the Bay. In other words just another typical day in coastal California.

Looks like we're in for another "broccoli year" here in Seattle. It's nearly July and I think may get down into the 40's tonight. We ain't gonna get no tomatoes this summer at that rate, nor sweet corn neither.

I think I have the Arizona version of cabin fever around 100 every day for 2 weeks, and we are 2 weeks away from the rainy season. Spending way to much time in the AC. Last year at this time I was out on the Horseshoe II fire for 45 days/nights, sleeping under the stars and eating well. I forgot about the heat of June.

It's sunny and hot, hot, hot here. Did I mention it is hot? The temperature may not be that high but the humidity makes up for it. This morning the local stations were full of Tropical Storm Debby, apparently a forecasters' nightmare. It might be pretty wet here in a couple of days, or not, and coastal communities (south of here) are sandbagging in case there is strong storm surge.

W2R, from what I see on The Weather Channel, you will be gettng wet soon. Sounds like Debby will take a turn west and head right at you. It's really nasty here as I am right on the eastern band of the storm. Down town areas of Tampa and St. Pete/Clearwater are really getting soaked. We got some nice rain (needed) and it's windy but really just brushing us as we are about 10 miles east of Tampa. Get the buckets ready.

This is our first summer in our new home in Arizona. Yes, it has been really hot recently. Over 100 every day for pretty well the whole month. Came down last week from Alberta where the highs were in the 40's or 50's. Talk about a shock!

Don't you have your schedule reversed? I thought you guys came south in the winter and spent the summers 'up nort'...

And today is another beautiful day in the Bay Area.
