THE WEATHER REPORT:
“The Weather Report” is the conversations we have at work and home that goes beyond the forecast. It’s all about how the weather affects our daily lives.
What a beautiful weekend with temps nice and mild in the upper 70’s (low 80’s). A perfect June weekend as we saw sunshine and no rain.
Many of us went for a walk or played some catch in the backyard and took in the summer vibe in Aroostook County, Maine. It was also a good weekend to get some projects done around the homestead. We saw a lot of painting, picking up and general yard work Saturday and Sunday.
The one thing you hear the most from just about everyone is when it gets really hot, they don’t care about the heat and humidity - thinking of how cold it is in the deep part of the winter.
If you have an air conditioner, people are talking about putting a fan in front of it to circulate the cold air even more. It works great and sometimes makes it so cold you have to adjust the fan.
This is also the time of year you hear people taking vacations and looking to go to different parts of the state. If you get paid time off at your workplace, look ahead to schedule a convenient time for you, your coworkers and employer. It's a time to get a break, but it’s also a very busy time for most businesses.
This week the conversation is about some rain and possibly thunderstorms coming into the area. This is forecasted over Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and evn Thursday. It really looks like a chance of rain right through the week and even into next weekend. The showers will be intermittent and the sun will be out at times. Look for clouds forming in between the weather changes.
