Missing summer…

We are still waiting for summer to arrive here along the north shore of Lake Superior. It has been cold. As I write this, we are approaching mid-July and we have yet to experience a day that approaches anywhere near 80º. Hell, we’re lucky if it gets close to 70º in our main cabin.

We have been living in jeans, wool socks and long-sleeve shirts. The other day when I went into my cupboard for a clean pair of jeans (2 weeks in one pair is probably long enough–they were beginning to stand up on their own), I longingly fingered my sleeveless tees and laughed at myself for bringing along 3 pairs of shorts.
