Aug 4, 2006 - 08:09 AMMe and the missus like to sit out in our backyard every morning. It's a pleasant way to start the day, eating some Cap'n Crunch and wondering what's going through that hummingbird's tiny brain, when he loudly zooms up to within a few inches of your head and just hangs there in midair. You could try offering him some cereal, but he'd just zoom away. Loudly.
During last month's record-breaking temp spike, the 6:41-7:00am time slot was the last chance to enjoy relatively comfortable temperatures before The Great Chef In The Sky turned on His/Her oven. It was like basking in a sauna. You'd start to sweat after twenty minutes in the triple-digit temps, but if you retreated back into the air conditioning at the 19-minute mark, you'd be okay.
However, it's felt downright chilly the past few mornings, sometimes dropping as low as 82°F (28°C).
I miss the heat.
