Man it's hot around here.

Sitting on the beach relaxing, felt like it was 65 degrees with that oh-so-cool ocean breeze hitting our faces. I wish this weather would cool down.





How's your summer weather turning out?

is it as hot and wretched as ours?

Jon, nice pics. It is still Spring here for a few more days. The weather is in the high 60's to low 70's with little humidity. When Summer starts here I'll let you know how the weather is here!

HOT! Try 90's with this humidity. Miami is sweltering. When it's not under torrential downpours.

We are about to commence our rainy season which is quite short. After that, the temps and humidity will be rediculous. I'm not looking forward to it.

Cooled off nicely here in NC - low 70s'. But last week was so hot I saw a dog chasing a cat - they were both walking.

It's bizarre.....living in FL all my life, I can't imagine summer not being horrendously hot and muggy (VELOCITY should know what I mean). I can't imagine June not going into 90s every day with sweltering humidity.

I move to PNW and it's sooooo different. I'm having to wear jackets, occasionally, in JUNE!!!! WTF is this? 50s and 60s IN JUNE? I feel like I've moved to a different planet......a GREAT one though.

Jon - are you feeling OK? You posted pictures without including one of you in your underwear.

Maybe we ought to call Siu to come take you to the doctor's office for a check-up.

I figured maybe I should hold off on posting half nude pictures of myself for awhile. I think this sunburn is getting to my head.

But... be careful what you wish for. I might change my mind in 10 minutes.

....because I have plenty more pictures from yesterday fo sho, na'mean?

Ugh- that's terrible! Leaves out here, but it's cool and cloudy. Sort of like early November around here. Without the headwinds (yes, they are always headwinds, for some reason), it would be absolutely deliughtful riding weather. Not to worry, though- summer's on the way- should be 91-93 in time for Father's Day (and my next metric). Go fig.

Nice pics Pheard!
