Too nice.

The weather here in the Great North Woods of New Hampshire is too nice. Monday, it was over 85 degrees here. That’s a fine hot day for the middle of summer. While it’s nice to run around in shorts and flip flops, at the back of my mind, it feels like something is wrong.

The ice left the lake about a month early -earlier than in anyone’s living memory.

Water levels in the lakes and rivers are at summer levels instead at spring flood levels. We really could use some rain, and I hate to say that. For the last few years we got so much rain I jokingly called our area the NH rain forest.

Cooler weather is predicted. I’ll be burning wood to take the chill out of the house again. That will feel weird too.

Strange days.



  1. yes, the various microclimates are changing

    good time to check your air conditioner now

    or later ask

    "GOT ICE"?


  2. Air conditioner? What's that? I don't own one as it's never been worth it for the 2 days of the year when it's uncomfortably hot. At least that was the case in the past.

    Yes, indeed - weird weather! Yesterday for about an hour it went to 100 degrees out on the back deck - right now it is 68 degrees. We need rain - I sure hope the well doesn't go dry this summer.....

  4. Glad to know tat we aren't the only ones having some strange weather!

    Never know what to expect anymore!

  5. The heat followed you back from Florida.

  6. days and cold nights all winter,no real "cold" weather at all here this year...
