Rain to cool things off

We had some needed rain yesterday.

This morning, it wasn’t as hot as it was all week, last night’s rain cooled off the scorching ground. Got out on the bike around 9am, temps were in the mid 70’s and remained that way throughout my ride.

What a scorcher we had this week, is this what we’re going to experience moving forward? Brutally cold winters and energy draining hot and humid summers, no more spring and fall to speak of.
