Summer Solstice, Summer Sun, Summer Scorcher

Summer has arrived. It was 109 degrees on 6/21/08. Not the kind of heat where you go outside. Unless you are 7 of 9. 7 insisted on playing Frisbee. I think we both are sunburned from that experience.

After that experience we retreated to the comfort of the straw bale house. After being closed up for 3 weeks in 100+ degree heat for 5 consecutive days, the house was a comfortable 79 degrees. Not bad for a place with no air conditioning.

One of the great things about the heat is that it produces magnificent sunsets. Here are some panoramas from that most blistering day.

This was taken 1pm when the recorded temperature was 107 degrees.
And these pictures say it all.
