Summer weather

Summer is definitely here! Florida has, as you probably know, subtropical climate. And during the summer it is all tropical. This means HOT, HUMID and usually every afternoon we get thunder storm.

Yesterday we had 100 F. That is 38 C!!! Hot, hot, hot! But the real kicker is the humidity, it makes it hard to function outside. Kind of being locked in a green house after watering, in full sun. Steamy!

But on the other side it is perfect weather for the beach, the waters in the Gulf of Mexico are now up to 88 F, that is over 31 C!

Since the thunder usually don't roll in until the afternoon, it is the perfect time to pack up the beach gear and head to Siesta Beach this weekend, and that is exactly what we are planning to do.

It sure doesn't hurt that Siesta Beach was voted 2009 second best beach in the US...

Ser härligt ut. Du får åka dit och svalka dig. Det skulle jag också gärna göra för här är det hett nu! Fast jag åker ju till Sverige på tisdag och då lär jag ju få svalka. Ha en bra helg och glad midsommar till dig och familjen.
