Interesting. Fusion is the holy grail...if it can be done. Then we can lose all the fission plants and their dirty fuel rods.
But you have to wonder, what can of worms fusion might open...

Well summer is here and we have been posting temps a full 100 degrees hotter than four months ago. Today it’s in mid 80’s and muggy.

I bought a mister thing for the new deck today. Hook it to the hose and it’s supposed to make a fine mist like I saw in AZ last time I was out there. It’s sure to get me yelled at for wasting money but it was in the discontinued rack so that’s going to be my story.

What’s the rest of the world seeing for temps? Has to be hot as the only news I hear coming to work is about the warming of the world.

Still looking for those snow fall tee shirts.

Oh Man that’s hot.

I guess the nice point about living thru the negative 25 days around here in winter is the mild summers.

Tuesday was the warmest this week it hit 80. We watched the sun set watching a concert on the bay. Today the high should be 72.

A lot of people when they retire here become “snow birds” some buy a second house in Fla or similar state some keep a trailer or motor home at one place or the other and some drive it back and forth spring and fall. I have thought about doing that after retirement but I find the worst part of winter is getting out and driving and being retired who cares when you dig out.
