Here in RI, I can't say it's hot. It's more accurate to say it is very warm and stiflingly humid. How humid? Last night my smoke alarm blared twice. There was no smoke (thank goodness). I think the humidity was like fog inside and outside my home and the smoke detector assumed that the fog was smoke. If so, it may happen again tonight, and if it does I will check again.

Ditto the others, harpgirl. Glad you got through it okay. I've been at others things and just got back here to check in.

As for here, Moncton, NB.ca, had my windows open all night and had TWO blankets on top of me. 8C and a breeze when I rose this AM. I am loving it. The temps will creep back up (mid 20s daytime and mid teens nighttime), but, on Thursday, the full moon, it's forecast to be showers and 16C. I love fall best of all.

Hope ChanteyLass nearby is more comfortable now. In my town, the humidity is greatly relieved today, and one no longer feels that one will suffocate when leaving a refrigerated-air-conditioned indoor environment. It is a welcome change. On the other hand, so was it a relief to get a good soaking rain on Saturday morning, because the area is drought-stricken, humidity or no humidity.

Ottawa had its last full day of summer yesterday, with bright sunshin and a high of 28 C. During the evening, banks of cloud rolled in and today it's grey and dreary, forecast high of 18 C with periods of drizzle.

Spring started as usual, pleasant, frogs peeping in the ditch and pond. Then, drought; day after day hot and dry, no peepers. Finally, pouring rain, hub deep to a ferris wheel. In time, it stopped and normality set in. I ended up having to teach the little frogs to swim.

I was going home to Bude from Manchester yesterday afternoon and I'd pulled into Gloucester services on the M5 where there's a fabulous farm shop. I couldn't get out of my car for twenty minutes due to a viciously spectacular though short-lived thunderstorm. Such events usually mark the end of fine spells, but today has been glorious in north Cornwall with non-stop sun and 25⁰C. Just down the road in Camborne they had a 40mm deluge yesterday in a short time, making it the wettest place in Britain. Gravesend had 34.4⁰C yesterday, a hundred-year UK record for September. I think somewhere in East Anglia may have touched 32⁰ today. Weird weather.

We were waiting at a bus stop today in a European city with a namesake in New York State. The bus was late and the bus stop had only half a roof. During a ten-minute deluge, there was nearly a riot at the bus stop as people less weather-savvy than me (I'd seen it coming!) tried to muscle us out of the way in their desperate efforts to stay dry. Manfully, I stood our ground. The whole city was in chaos with roads flooded everywhere. When the bus finally reached its destination, 25 miles away, we came upon weather that was hot and sunny and there had been no rain there at all. We stood on the roof of Santa Chiara church and had a wonderful view of an amazing baroque town that had been completely rebuilt after a devastating earthquake at the end of the 17th century.

I later discovered that, apart from a little strip near Barcelona, we were in the only place in Europe that had had such unsettled weather. If you can't guess where we are, I'll tell you on Monday.

When my flight left Providence, Rhode Island yesterday, it wasn't all that cold really; must have been in the '60s Fahrenheit. The problem was the wind. After the rainstorms moved out, the wind pushed in. The kind of wind that says, Summer is SO OVER. Dry, cold, biting, withering wind. I needed several layers, including the winter parka with the hood up, to get from my parked car to the airport terminal.

This morning I wake up in Paradise Valley, part of greater Phoenix, Arizona, where they tell me it is no longer so hot as it had been all summer. Now that it is no longer summer here, they actually get through an entire day without breaking 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and the nighttime temperatures drop down to almost 80 degrees Fahrenheit.

In my rental car, however, I still pack my winter parka -- to wear indoors, when the refrigerated air is especially, erm, refrigerated. Especially if I am sitting still at a computer.

And today,it was slightly warm and felt warmer because of humidity which eventually became rain. Normally I would go to a chantey sing in Bristol, RI, on the third Friday of warmish months, but it's held around a campfire. The planners promised if it rained we would move indoors because this is the last one until spring, but I couldn't picture myself walking through rough, wet, unlit fields to get to the historic farmhouse or back to my car. I could see lightning in the distance and I heard flash flood warnings, so I turned my car around and drove home through Providence's commuter traffic.

In Juneau, Alaska today, we are forecast to have one more bright, dry day, closing October's record-breaking month. The weather in Juneau is typically cool, even nippy (we are at latitude 58) pretty much year 'round with lots of rain, right at 100 inches of it, on top of another 100 inches or so of winter time snow. These last couple of years have not been normal - last winter the ground didn't freeze to any depth. And now, just like many other places in the world, we're having record-breaking temperatures.

I'm hoping for a snowy winter this year- we're far enough north - and with mountains all around - that warmth traveling to us from the south may react to the Pacific Ocean outside our door and give us snow instead of rain. Fingers crossed.

Although it is November and past Election Day, we are having October weather: warm, clear, and dry, with this cloudless blue sky overhead.

It is possible for people who have been curled up indoors to come out today, and pretend that November hasn't even happened yet. And all that comes with November.

Sunday I washed my quilt cover & packed away my 80% down quilt as I've not used it for a week. If we get a cool snap I'll bring out my thin blanket or my even thinner wool shawl.

Warm & very warm days, some with humidity, tho none last night!

My French teacher taught me a memorable turn of phrase:

"Il pleut comme une vache qui pisse."

Which is what it is doing today, pissing down rain.
Certainly needed, though. There are as many leaves on the ground as there are remaining on the trees; and the drier the weather, the more the dried-up leaves contribute to dust and dander and everything. It was time for things to be safely damped down. At least it is warm enough, for some reason, not to have frost or freezes making things wintry tonight.

And after yesterday's thorough soaking, puffy pale-grey clouds are moving rapidly across the sky, and an occasional hole in the clouds allows a well-scrubbed clear blue sky to peak through.
