|From Climate Prediction Center|
Usually if we have hot weather around here it happens in August, but not this year. Now it is setting up to be a super-warm September, but that's really okay since it will cool down quickly at night. The only reason why my Canadian friends can't tell what is happening to their weather from that graph is that the Climate Prediction Center (link under the above picture) stops all predictions at the border. I'm sure they will be much hotter than normal, too.
Zuanich Point Park at Squalicum Harbor. Several of my blogging friends have been showing me their part of the world in their posts, and it occurred to me that you might be interested in seeing what my new home town of Bellingham has to offer. I have certainly been enjoying my virtual travels. Usually the water in the harbor is nowhere near this calm and the skies have clouds, but this crystal clear morning I took a few moments to take pictures.
My bookshelf is full again. After having read all the others I bought a month ago, I headed down to the Village Bookstore with nine to return and left with four new ones. Actually, all but one of them were used, previously owned and half price. They place the half-price books on the shelves with the new ones, and if I get a choice I buy the used ones. The bookstore will buy them back as well, I've discovered. I'm currently ensconced in another Jodi Picoult book, this time My Sister's Keeper. I thought I had read it before, but I haven't. It was made into a movie in 2009, but somehow it escaped my notice.
Hopefully you will have a safe and delightful weekend and, if you're in the US, a nice three-day weekend! Mine has started swimmingly (a half mile, to be exact) and tomorrow more skydiving, since the weather is, for once, not an issue!
