    On the morning of October 1st I saw a rainbow.

    I don’t remember the last time I saw a rainbow.

    It was interesting that I saw it on the morning of October 1st, because of what had happened the day before. It didn’t even rain that morning.

    Summer is Fading

    By Tiki Steve | August 27, 2014

    There was about 10 days when the dew points in the afternoon were in the low 80s. For about a week the mornings no longer seemed cool. Summer eased its tight grip last Thursday and it seems as if we have jumped back to late June weather.

    The days have been getting shorter for over two months now. The morning and evening light is much more yellow. The angle of the sun has changed dramatically in two months. The season is changing. The change of seasons I would argue is more pleasant here in Florida. It’s not as dramatic. But, it’s a lot less painful.

    A dew point of 71 at 4 p.m. seems too good to wish for.

    On Thursday the dew points dropped from the low 80s to the mid 70s. It feels really nice out now. It doesn’t seem hot.

    Yep, It’s Hotter Than Tampa

    By Tiki Steve | August 17, 2014

    A couple of times today, when I walked outside, I thought, “it’s hot.” I don’t usually do that. Usually, one day seems about as steamy as the next.

    Tampa is starting to look like ‘Florida Lite‘.

    From a practical standpoint, I’m not sure if it really makes any difference. Both places are pretty steamy. It’s pretty much the same every day. You get acclimatized to the humidity in a way that can’t happen in Minnesota. I’m not sure I’d want to fly down here from Minneapolis in the summer.

    The sky is hazy today. Dust from the Sahara Desert has blown all the way over here.
