It's in the high 90s with high humidity here in Cryer land. I'll be enjoying the day inside with the A/C.

Why are people so :scared: about snow? On two different talk radio stations today I heard people talking about how hot it is. Both times the hosts hits back with "At least its not snow!!!!!" On on just now the person talking replied "I'd almost rather have snow right now" and the 3 other people with mics all jumped in "Ohhhh no no no." "No way!" "Dont start that snow talk already!!"

I understand the travel problems heavy snow causes, but just the mere mention of it, in June sends people into hysterics

It's because it's the other extreme.

People hate it when it's really hot, but they also hate it when it's cold enough to snow.

I don't like that SS is in June, when there are 2+ months of 'summer vacation' remaining before school starts back up. Seems to me like either SS should be on the exact middle of summer vacation, or that summer vacation needs to be shifted so that the longest day of the year is the last day of summer vacation. After that, shorter days are ok.

yes eismann what you are trying to say is that being some random day in late june removes the romantic aspect of the solstice.

I'm enjoying the longest day of the year here in Costa Rica, where the difference between the longest and shortest days of the year is about 10 minutes. :pop:

I haven't really done anything at all today

That said, I never complain about heat because I'd rather have it than cold

Funny how good for you some nice weather is. Being outside, playing sports, swimming, hanging in the sun. I love summer, and I'd take 95 degree days over 25 degree days 11 times out of 10.

In the middle of summer, I say "at least its not cold". Cold is miserable.

Google has it starting the 20th as well.

To celebrate the solstice (and to thank us for our hard work), my boss is letting us leave @ 3 today. :D
