Water Temperature: 76°

t weather cold water

Of the six days I’ve dipped in the pool this season, that’s the coldest the water has been, after briefly reaching 82° on the heels of a few 90+° air temp days.

I don’t mind the chill. I wouldn’t want it much warmer. Whatever the air temp is out today, the humidity made it intolerable. After backwashing the pool with Susan, I took Gertie’s cage off into the shade on the other side of the driveway for an overdue cleaning. The shade did nothing to cool down the early evening sweltering over: within minutes, the “exertion” of scrubbing the cage wire with an old toothbrush had me sweating so profusely that I couldn’t see.

Sometimes I find myself very seriously hating this cursed city’s idea of weather.
