Once Upon A Time

Five months ago, almost to the damned day, temperatures up here (not the wind chill, mind you) were dropping to around -20 to -30, as in twenty to thirty degrees, below zero. Today, it's a bit of a different story. WCCO (07.31.06):
"It was so hot Monday that a local swim team cut short its morning practice because the water in the pool was too warm, and construction workers were drinking water by the gallon. The National Weather Service was predicting highs near 100 in central and south Minnesota, and about 90 in the northwest. The heat index, a measure of temperature plus humidity, was expected to approach 105 to 110 in the Twin Cities." 'One More Real Toasty Day' For Minnesotans
Right now, it's about 102, with a dewpoint of 77. Don't know how you feel about the weather in your parts, but this really sucks.

That there is what I always called good beer drinkin' days. Although I've recently discovered that 100 and dry makes even better beer drinkin' days. Can't lose, really.

Ahhhh, beg to differ there, seƱor. When it's 100F ambient, and 80F dewpoint, it sucks bigtime, any way you look at it.

Much nicer today, though.
