Sharing is caring!

The weather this weekend turned out truly perfect. I didn’t have any of the pop-up thunderstorms in my area until after dark… I’ll take a few more days like that this summer! 🙂

The weather today will be partly sunny, with a high near 71 and a low around 43. Some scattered showers possible before 10am and a West wind 13 to 18 mph gusting as high as 29 mph.
