    Default Hot Summer Nights

    Welcome summer!

    Today is the summer solstice, that's the first day of summer for those of you that don't know. It means that the sun is at it's highest point in the sky, for those of us in the northern hemishere. It also means today is our "longest" day of the year. Or at least the day when the sun is in the sky the longest.

    Here in Denver the sun rose at 0532 and will set at 1932. That's 14 hours of sunshine! With over 300 days with sun each year, Denver rocks!

    It's winter solstice down under however, they're not exactly freezing their bums off down there. It's forecast to be in the mid 50's F (12-13 C). So, for our linkers down under, they are just about done with their "shortest" day of the year. In Melbourne, the sun rose at 0736 and set at 1708 for a little less than 10 hours of sunshine!

    Here's to summer!
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    After today, the days start getting shorter. That's depressing.

    Hell, we're just getting into the dog days of summer now. From about mid July to mid August it will be freaking miserable. It seems odd to me that the days get hotter even though the sun isn't out as long.

    It's a good bet that if you ask someone if the days get longer or shorter in the summer, they will answer longer. It's a good way to get free beer at the bar.

    Well, let me amend my previous statement...the hot weather is all good, as long as there's a pool and beer involved.

    fuck the summer!
    the birds start quacking about 4 am. I get no sleep since the freaking sun doesn't go down until halfway through Genral Hospital.

    plus I drive 45 miles due east into the sun in the morning, then turn around and do it backwards due west in the evening. You know what? Fuck I-30 and all even numbered interstate highways altogether!!!!!!
