The Dog Days.....

of May????

Are you friggin' kiddin' me? It's 8 PM and it's 82 degrees and it's May 25th.

So what's wrong with this picture? 

Absolutely nothing.

Just not used to it. 

It's been warmer than normal since Easter. We had a couple days n the 80's then.  
Hell, I can remember summers in the last decade where it hit 80 once or twice-period.

So anyways, it's hotter than hell, my son and his accomplice Rick are roofing my mother's house (Welcome to the real world guys-don't forget the sunscreen!). And life is good.

So what's a Dog Day in May look like in Tupper?

Like this.
Red is semi-comatose.

Boomer is comatose, well not quite, but close.

 Then there's Dodger- he's too young too know it's hot.

You know, some days, it's not bad to be a dog.

  1. I haven't looked at the right kind of map yet, but I think you guys are on the same gen latitude as we - we seldom go over 80 in summer, and all nights are cool - no air needed! Tough on tomatoes - nice for sleeping.

    However, we've had nothing but rain for the last month - trade ya.
