Although it's technically still spring. The first since the trees have been cut back and pretty much stripped of foliage. I didn't realize that it would affect our house, particularly the front yard.
Usually the front of the house is in shade pretty much most of the day. A pleasant place to be. Not today. It was over 106° at the thermometer in the bedroom (the kind that has a wire going outside). At the back of the house, it was 100°. At the pool, it was over 128°. The pool water was 85°.
Well, if it's any consolation, if it's that hot at our house, I can imagine how hot it is next door. In the past years, we've made accommodations for the summer heat on the west side of the house. Attic fan, shades, blinds...we're used to it. Enjoy the summer, neighbors, after all these decades of free shade....and just keep reminding yourselves that trees are good for nothing unless they're fruit trees.
