Here It Comes.


Not that I'm obsessing, or anything, but here comes the cool front! Looks like I'm going to get caught in the worst of the storms on my way home, but I don't care. It's worth it.

Meanwhile, Lynn S has some great pictures of what we can expect on the other side, only even more so. I almost agree with her that the misery of the heat is worth it because of the extra delight in the contrast when it cools down.

UPDATE: Made it to the Metro just ahead of the storm and in the teeth of a 30 mph headwind that put so much grit under my contacts as to essentially blind me. By the time I got off in Virginia, the storm had mostly passed over already. The power was out at the Butcher's House when I got home and stayed that way until some time around midnight, meaning dinner was a box of saltines, some fruit and a bottle of wine.

Wow. It's like reading the Drudge Report :-)

I'm with you all the way -- it's now 25 degrees cooler in DC than it was about two hours ago.

I met a friend for dinner at 5:45pm. The termometer in my car read 100 degrees when I went in. While we ate the thunderstorms passed through and when I got back into my car the thermometer read 77 degrees.

Still steamy humid, but much, much cooler, praise the Lord!

It read 110 in the parking lot when I left work, and 73 when I got home (after driving through a howling thunderstorm)...
