Thread Name: What's the weather like where you are?
Subject: RE: What's the weather like where you are?
Another silvery day here in Juneau, Alaska. (Silvery is different from grey- the sun is on just the other side of the clouds, lending a silvery glow) The temperature, the last few days, has been around 60F, a little cooler than typical. Before this, we had several days of upper 70s-- very hot for this part of the world.
Everything - the grass, the bushes, the mountains - is green, the fireweed is brilliant and about 2/3 of the way finished ("Fireweed half done = Summer half gone"), the mountain ash berries are in the dull-brown wispy stage before they burst into heaps of brightness, the tops of the maple trees give hints of fall color (as seen from my window), autumn morning fogs (most common in August) force our many cruiseships to moan their way into our harbor. We may have an early fall.
Everything has been early this year- We had a very short spring. We seemed to jump from winter almost directly into summer.
