This week's CAS-ual Friday challenge gave me the perfect chance to make my sad little ice cream cone!
In my whole life, I have never lived any place humid, so I am absolutely not used to it. The last few weeks in Colorado have been monsoon season. Every afternoon/night, drenching thunderstorms come through. Our humidity has been up to 60%. (I know that many of you just fell over thinking how LOW that is - but I'm used to less than 10%). My house has a swamp cooler - which only works in dry air - so I can't even cool my house while the temps have been in the 90s. (I know that right now there are a lot of you who are thinking how COOL that sounds). But I HATE it!
And nobody is getting good sleep so my whole family is cranky. The storms have been coming through nightly. Two nights ago, we had a storm come through around 10:30 the other night that rattled the walls and filled the sky with constant lightning. The cat sat in the hall and howled. Yes, I said the cat! The dog hid in the bathtub.
The big mystery of my life is the frogs. Even when the storm has passed, the air echoes with the fairly creepy sound of frogs. Where did they come from?? I've never heard frogs in Colorado. It's dry here. It's like they are dropping out of the sky with the hailstones!
But...Colorado weather won't let me down for long. Soon the humidity will drop, my swamp cooler will work and I will return to my cheerful self!
