Swam w/ Dave and Dave. Pool temp down to 80! I think this has a lot to do with exceptionally cool weather we are having. While the west is baking, little has been said about the cool and (as of yesterday) very wet summer the southeast is having. Not that things can't change in a few days and we have had some very hot Septembers. Anyways, we had a very wet 4th of July. A neighborhood rain gauge registered almost 7 inches. We normally get about 2 inches in the entire month of July. I don't think they turn on the heater during the summer so all this cool weather has kept pool temps down.

    I was just thinking about the weather. It's 75F at almost 2pm in Mobile in July? Let it rain!

    Its been weird. I don't every remember a summer day where it just rained all day long. We've had on/off scattered thundershowers before but nothing like yesterday. Its more like a winter weather pattern... just not as cold.

    This morning a radio DJ reported the weather: "30% chance of thunderstorms... because apparently we now live in a RAIN FOREST!" Better that than a desert but we could definitely spare some for the Texans.
