New England is well known for its crazy weather, from its weekly snow storms to dramatic temperature changes.  Bottom line, the weather here is pretty unpredictable.  But for the passed few weeks, we have experienced what the weathermen (and weather women) call "unseasonably weather."  Let's just say that spring went right on, jumped over the summer, and transformed into fall.  The temperatures during that stretch stayed in the 50-70s range, which is actually comfortable, thanks to the low humidity.  But here is the bummer:  It rained most of the time.  I think June was the most rainiest June in history.  We had a good two week stretch that consisted of... well, rain. 

The rain definitely bothered a lot of New Englanders during that week.  No one went to the beach or went out for a picnic.  No one had any baseball games because of field conditions.  No one went out at all.   That gray stretch was torture.  I'm a very outdoorsy person.  I like to go to the park to play catch, walk, take pictures, or just sit out there and just take everything in.  When it rained "forever,"  I didn't do anything productive.  Sure, it got me to sit down and do paperwork, but that got boring QUICK.  I tried to amuse myself with video games, board games with the family, watching T.V., cleaning my room, and other indoorsy stuff, but that didn't work.  It is amazing how one big ball of fire (also known as the Sun) can make a difference in everyone's life. 

While writing this blog post, I jumped on to wbztv.com and hit the weather link.  It looks like summer finally wants to poke its head into the New England area.  "Oppressive humidity" and high temperatures are FINALLY going to take over.  That means the beaches will be crowed, ice cream parlors will be busy, and air conditions will be in full blast...

... oh Summer, you finally returned :-)
