How is summer going for you?

Just thought I would see how summer is going for those of you in the summer season.

Summer is usually nice up here in the Pacific Northwest but this year has not been good. Uncomfortably hot and dry with no rain...everything is so dry here and there are about 200 wild fires raging in BC so there is yucky smoke everywhere...the sun is like a hazy orb through the haze of smoke...I can't ever remember a summer like this - especially with this much smoke in Vancouver. Hope summer is going better in other parts of the world.

Been raining like a son of a bitch here, bumming me out. At least we haven't had the stupid hot weather yet

Re: How is summer going for you?

It's getting deep into July and our afternoon thunderstorms that roll in from the Everglades in the west have yet to start. We need the rain because lots of stuff is drying out, including my backyard.
It doesn't get as hot down here as up north but with the humidity you start to sweat badly in nanoseconds.
The late spring/early summertime humidity and the reverse drop around Christmas means I have to tech my guitars again. Thankfully most are fixed bridge so it isn't so bad.
Been busy as all get out with work too. My four year-old daughter and honey-do stuff keeps me busy on weekends.
Other than that I'm enjoying it. :P

Too much rain in Chicago and none in the Pacific Northwest - go figure. We finally got some rain here recently so it helped crews get some of the wildfires under control and the smoke is gone from the Vancouver area...but it's getting hot again with no more rain in sight - supposed to get up over 90 F this weekend...crazy weather. I looked at the FTL forecast and it had 7 days straight of risk of thunderstorm...I thought it was always nice in Florida...lol

Crazy hot here in Florida. Thankfully the summer semester is almost over so I can finally have some down time.
