Who Let The Dogs Out?

Woof! Woof! Who let the dogs out? Just like I stated a few weeks ago, the dog days of summer last for about three weeks in Northern Virginia. From the last two weeks in July thru the first full week of August we have our high heat and heavy humidity. Now that weather pattern has changed and the dog days of summer are gone. Each morning we awake to temps in the low 60's and we go up to the mid 80's without humidity. Very, very pleasant. It feels a little bit like fall is here already. And have you noticed that we are now losing about 90 seconds of daylight each day. Yes, the days are getting a little shorter too. Woof! Woof! Who let the dogs out?

It's been in the low to mid 50's here at night, it's wonderful! The air conditioning can stay off at least for a few hours. The highs have been in the mid to upper 70's. Just very pleasant weather!

I have also noticed the days getting shorter on light. Last night it seemed almost 8:00 and it was getting dusk. Yuck...I don't like the darkness at 6:00 in the winter time.

J&J: I'm very happy with the temperature changes, I have noticed the change in daylight but it is to be expected.
