Perfect weather for getting sick, this sudden drop always seems to bring on a wave of colds.  Labor Day is of course, the traditional "end of summer" weekend here around the Ozarks, so we had 2 big nights down there.  The days were in the 90s and the evenings were around 70, which meant we worked up a sweat setting up and playing, then were relatively cool when we got done and tore down.  And of course, down on the lake it's just always humid.  You could see the mist blowing by the stage lights by time we got done.  Then there were the big crowds, handshakes and hugs and people yelling in your face and ears.  I was sure I'd wake up Sunday or Monday sick, but I didn't.

Monday I had to mow the yard, which I do with a push mower.  It always takes hours and it was about 94, which meant I was all sweaty when I got done, then came into a chilly, air conditioned house.  I had to get it mowed though because it was getting too tall and it was supposed to rain Tuesday.  Tuesday Iwent out to meet Karly getting off the school bus, shortly before the rain hit, and was shocked by how chilly the breeze was.

So, I've been doing my best to get sick but so far, nothing.    John

I've heard a little about that.  A friend of mine from Sidney Nebraska was talking about weather in the 90s, suddenly turning to snow.  It's been in the 90s here, hot and steamy, (I had to work outdoors Friday and Saturday nights) but it's only dropped about 10 degrees today with thunderstorms expected this afternoon.  I won't miss the 90s but I'm not quite ready for snow either.  John

It was 94f on Sunday here. Monday it was 40f. On the drive in to work today it was 28f! The mountains here got snow yesterday and many of them around Helena arte white again, though it will be in the upper 80's by weeks end.
