Thank Goodness for Cooler Grey Skies

With our past several weeks of sunshine, no rain, and temperatures in the mid-80s to nearly 100F (37C), today's cloud cover has been a welcome change. It has been grey all day, the temperature at 4:30 p.m. is a mild 72F (22C), with a soft breeze of 9 mph. The humidity is down in the 50th percentile. It is actually quite pleasant.

This week's weather is forecast to be partly cloudy with highs in the mid-70s, and upper-70s by next weekend. I am pleased to have a reprieve; I do not tolerate the 90s very well any more. How I used to love 90F and above, is beyond me.

I am looking forward to the possibility of going out and listening to some music at one of the local venues. Nothing fancy, but I think it would do we well to get out where there a few human beings around.

Sounds fun. We have something similiar here during the summer called Bands on the Beach. I'd go more often if it wasn't so hot and humid LOL

Well, sometimes grey days are just the right thing. I know for me, when I don't see the sun, I get depressed. Thats just me. but I can no longer handle hot humid weather anymore either. But I do dread the winters.

CoralLevang wrote on July 10, 2015, 8:04 PM

I understand the grey and depression, but it's why I try to get out around people a bit, whether one or more. I don't mind the winters up here as it's usually not snow and ice. But we are up north, so the same long days in summers, become long dark days in winter. Thankfully, don't deal too much with snow.

I need to get online and check to see what's going on in our area.

My last winter in Oregon was 2008 and we had an epic snow storm starting on like the fourteenth. It lasted ten days or something. Might of had something to do with my choice to move to the south. Lol

inertia4 wrote on July 10, 2015, 8:15 PM

See, thats what I would like. Hardly no snow. It gets way annoying here. And to dig out a car thats parked in the street is a horror show. I get out, not a lot like I used to though.

Well, it has been raining the whole week here in Manila and I miss the sun terribly! In fact, I miss summer already!

CoralLevang wrote on July 10, 2015, 8:37 PM

But you would have some grey skies here. But I will take that with someone around who makes me laugh any day to the snow.

I'm in western WA near the Sound, so not much of that. I think you are right about Murphy visiting you that year. He laid out his Law.

CoralLevang wrote on July 10, 2015, 8:38 PM

We need the rain here right now.. Too many fires popping up as it's been so dry.

We do need human beings around us occasionally - real and not virtual (lol). I just go shopping. We have a mall here - Big Bazaar, a few kilo meters away. I go there to have a brush with human beings - there are enough there to last a lifetime (lol)

CoralLevang wrote on July 10, 2015, 9:07 PM

If I remember correctly, you are in India? I would love to see your bazaars. I would love to travel to your country.

inertia4 wrote on July 10, 2015, 9:13 PM

Okay, I can deal with great skies over snow any day. believe me. When the winter comes I start getting sick. It makes life hard.

bestwriter wrote on July 10, 2015, 9:45 PM

Yes. I am from India. It is a big country. Where do you begin?

Paulie wrote on July 10, 2015, 10:25 PM

Temperatures in the high 70s with lower humidity do seem ideal. We get weather like this only for a couple of months in December and january. I hope you enjoy the music.

CoralLevang wrote on July 10, 2015, 10:31 PM

I wouldn't know where to begin. I would be interested in so much of it.

CoralLevang wrote on July 10, 2015, 10:33 PM

thanks, Paulie . It's already 7:30 p.m. and I am wondering if I really want to go out at all. LOL

bestwriter wrote on July 10, 2015, 10:56 PM

May be you can start with the beaches.

Same here weatherwise today too, and it does come as a blessed relief. Enjoy the music emoticon :smile:

CoralLevang wrote on July 11, 2015, 8:20 AM

Thank you, bestwriter . Lovely. And have you been to these beaches?
Actually, I am not much of a "beach" girl. I'm more apt to hit the bazaars in the cities. I will make it there one day. Thanks again for the link.

bestwriter wrote on July 11, 2015, 8:22 AM

I have been there thrice.One never gets tired of that scene. Once I went in the rain. It was heavenly.

CoralLevang wrote on July 11, 2015, 8:22 AM

Hollyhocks100 I never did go out. Just didn't feel like having to shower, dress, put on a face, and deal with people. I did more reading, went to sleep about 1:15, and I'm back up 4 hours later. Today will be a "nap" day, I am sure. emoticon :smile: Glad you got some relief from the scorcher.

That sounds much more like the Pacific Northwest I remember so fondly.

Hollyhocks100 wrote on July 12, 2015, 4:36 AM

Sorry to hear you are still having trouble sleeping, hope you GROW out of it soon emoticon :winking:

CoralLevang wrote on July 12, 2015, 1:03 PM

hollyhocks100 well, I am told that it is part of getting older. Screw that sh##!!!!!

CoralLevang wrote on July 12, 2015, 1:04 PM
