So last night my husband, son, and I had a lovely night. We went out for pizza and then came home and swam in our pool under the stars. We tried really hard to get the dogs in the pool - but no way! Still the rest of us had a really nice night. The water was wonderful and the moon was full, or mostly full. It was great.
We slept with our bedroom door open to the outside because we have a security screen with a deadbolt lock. It was a nice night for sleeping following a great night of family time.
Then today. Oh my. The temperature dropped a lot, 92 degrees. But it felt much cooler because of the wind. And I MEAN WIND! WOW. I think we had sustained winds of 20 or 30 miles an hour and frequent gusts of 50 miles per hour. The sky filled with dust. The mountains were obscurred. Breathing was awful. And the noise was relentless. A constant humming and clanking of wind through the house. My nerves were totally on edge. Weird.
Now at last the wind has died down, the air is cool, the crickets are chirpping. So much better. What a day.
Now. How was YOUR day?
