That's What I'm Talking About
Posted by Pete Bouchard
Dry, fresh air has finally made it into New England. Got so humid this weekend, I was wondering if palm trees were going to sprout up.
OK, maybe it wasn't THAT sticky, but it sure felt like South Beach with that humid airmass. Today's was a lot more comfy, and all that summer sun was the icing on the cake. A puurrrfect day.
Tomorrow's not too shabby either. I'd even give it the nod for the pick of the week. The reasoning is plain and simple: comfy air, light sea breeze, blue skies. And hey, Wednesday's not half-bad either, but it will fall short of Tuesday's standards. We'll slide into the latter half of the week with storms on Thursday and eventually A STORM on Friday and Saturday.
Yes, I have an "elephant in the room" alert. This storm looks juicy and organized. No threat for anything tropical, but we may tap into a plume of tropical moisture over the Southeast US. That means rain...and lots of it. Enough to qualify as a possible washout by Saturday. We'll see how the timing works out, but I wanted to give you a heads up.
Finally, it's with a heavy heart that we announce Dylan Dreyer's departure. She'll be taking off for the big city (second only to Boston) by the end of the month. Dyl, you'll be "mist" terribly. Here's the 411 from her blog this AM...sigh....
So as I'm eating a steady diet of scrambled egg and bacon sandwiches on white toast with a side of grits each morning and slurping on Miami Vices poolside with a warm, tropical breeze each afternoon, news spread of my departure. I'm still here for another month, so I won't say my goodbyes just yet but I do want to mention it. I've met some best friends and my fiance here and, trust me, this is going to be extremely bittersweet for me and I absolutely love Boston and all the people here. But we've still got plenty of weeks together, so I'll continue to tell you my mundane stories in this blog every morning!
