As our temperatures rushed into summer highs yesterday, people were resorting to the tried and true ways of staying cool. Mid 90’s and high humidity cause some Minnesotans to shelter in air conditioning, while the majority choose to embrace the weather but cool off by a lake. Whatever wind that’s blowing across the lake surface cools and becomes a delightful and welcome breeze. People were out at Lake Como canoeing, kayaking, walking, relaxing and savoring the warmth of summer; winter’s cold seemed a long way away!
Sweet pic! Those winds yesterday were awesome, strong enough to take the edge off the heat, just the opposite of those all-too-easy-to-remember wind chills that dominate our weather five months out of the year…I esp. love the “splashes” of red you were able to include in this photo, Linda. Nicely done, as usual!
Yes, Rex – how quickly we forget the cold of winter when we’re in the midst of a heat wave! And only people with an eye for photographs would notice and appreciate the splashes of red. Thanks, Rex!
