Summer Solstice 2012
So today, June 20, 2012, is the longest day of the year and the North Pole is tipped toward the sun more than on any other day, while the South Pole is tipped away from the sun making it the shortest day of the year for the Southern Hemisphere. Now the longest day of the year is not expected to be the hottest day of summer but the temperature predicted for an afternoon high today is well above my comfort zone. It is going to be bad enough that I did make the effort of watering my poor little vegetable plants this morning. Time will tell whether the plants or I wilt the most. Actually I know the answer. I am not going to wilt too much because I am going to indulge in spending most of the day in air conditioning.
My cats, Thunder and Lightning are taking today easy too.
