High temperatures for the past few weeks has been high 60s, low 70s here. Lows have dipped into high 40s. This is unusually cool. We should be in low-mid 80s this time of year. Should be in the 90s by 4th of July.

On a tangent subject, apparently birch trees are dying in the area due to non-native beetles. Of course, the birch trees probably aren't native either. Perhaps climate change has provided a way for these beetles to thrive? Perhaps they just hadn't been introduced until somewhat recently? Anyhow, I lost my ~30 year old tree last summer and removed it this spring. Not happy about that.
