Signs of Summer

Posted on June 25, 2009


The daylily is beginning to bloom in Maryland. It can only mean that July 4 is around the corner.

Saw my first fireflies of summer last night. Also yesterday, we turned on the home air conditioning for the first time this year.

Ocean City’s spell of unusually cool and cloudy weather is about over. Yesterday afternoon was hot and muggy enough for AC in West OC, but a nice breeze made for a comfortable evening on the Boardwalk.

Ocean City has been spared from the record-setting heat wave that toasted the middle of the country this week. We’re expecting a high of 82 this afternoon, and the temperature will peak at around 86 on Saturday.

As I write this Thursday morning, the sky is overcast, but the forecast is for mostly sunshine through Monday. And that’s your fragment of a blog post for Thursday. –– Bernie
