My Favorite Time of Day

The weather here in Utah is so different than what I've known for the last 23 years. In Washington the summers are cool - most of the time it doesn't get above 80 degrees. There are the occasional hot spells with 90, 95 and even 100. I would not be a happy camper when I heard the weather was going to be above 85. Nights would be chilly getting down into the 50's - almost too cool to enjoy being outside.

It has been 95 every day that I've been in Utah. That is hot! But, because the air is drier, it doesn't feel that bad. I'm actually enjoying it. It feels like summer. Time for lemonade, iced tea, salads, and other hot weather food. But my favorite time of day is the evening when the sun is setting. It stays warm, which makes it so enjoyable to be outside. It's 11:45 PM and it's still 75 degrees. I was just out on the patio, in my bare feet, enjoying the night breeze.

Yup, I'm definitely liking this!

I agree...the weather here feels like real summer. I always mostly lived in my home town on the coast in calif (about 75 degrees every day year round...rarely over 90) and it took some getting used to when we moved here 6 years ago. I adore the seasons though...fall and spring are my favorites but I am getting used to summertime more all the time. I never had AC in my house before we lived here!! Now we still only have one little window unit in the family room...but it going right now at 11:25!!pm (I like 65 degrees personally!)

Sounds like Utah is the place for you to be.

I do enjoy the warm summer nights. As long as it cools off before I go to bed. I hate when it's to hot to sleep.

You know, I have not had my first glass of lemonaid this year. You made me want a glass right now.

I envy you the weather. Our humidity makes summer pretty miserable.

Hi, Kay!
The weather sounds great, it's hot and humid. Yuck! It is sometimes nice enough to sit outside in the evenings though.
Just wanted to pop in and say "HI"...we're Simple Summer Swap partners. YAY!!
