Since the first of September, we've had the longest unbroken string of beautiful days of 2014. It has been fantastic, after all the rain we had in July and especially August.
This kind of weather reminds me of summers in northern California, where we lived for 18 years before relocating to the Loire Valley. It hardly ever rains there at all in summertime.
Right now, our Loire Valley mornings are crisp. The afternoons are pleasantly warm. There's very little humidity in the air. This month will be remembered as 2014's summer.
We haven't had a drop of rain in September. That is supposed to change this coming week, when temperatures will rise and storms are supposed to develop. Right now, we could actually use some rain.
