A late blooming spring - but summer is here

I think I've been doing a pretty good job of keeping the worst of the heat out of my house.  I'm still cooling with ceiling fans.  Dale gave in and put his air conditioner in a few days ago.  But he mows about eleven lawns and most of them with a push mower.

Today I took a short lunch and took the dogs out in the country to run in an open field. When we came back into town, Dale was almost done mowing a lawn with the push mower.  We took him two ice cold bottles of water.  The temperature in the mid 80's although hot, feels much worse with the humidity.  As we were arriving home from lunch, there was a huge crack of thunder and from that point the wind picked up. 

Dale kept mowing lawns but at least he now had a slightly cooler wind to offset the humidity.  He picked up Duchess and My Jenny about 3:30 and they went down to the lake.  Today, even Dale went into the lake to cool off. 

Summer begins at 12:04 AM and we are supposed to be in the middle of thunderstorms.  So if summer comes in like a lion does that mean it will go out like a lamb?
