Good morning Longbranch.
My lovely bride and I are both rooting for the sun to come out. Although it drizzled a bit early this morning, we are positively optimistic that the day will clear up as predicted.
“C’mon sun,” my lovely bride bellowed as clouds shrouded the sun’s glow.
It is a balmy 63 degrees outside at the moment. That is nothing to sneeze at. For us Pacific Northwestern-ers, that is practically tropical bliss.
So, if you’re wondering if we are indeed going to get the record highs that many media outlets — TV — keeps babbling about, here is the weather guru Cliff Mass’ take on the subject:
“This is NOT going to be an historic heat wave west of the Cascades…but we could well break a daily high temperature record on Monday. So don’t expect the high 90s, with peaks about 100F, that we experienced in late July 2009. And there is a chance of some major thunderstorms…but just a chance.”
Not to steal the weather report’s thunder, but I give you this day in history:
In 2007, Apple released its long anticipated iPhone to the delight of many. Lines formed outside Apple stores for days. The new gadget featured a touch-screen with no keyboard, wi-fi access, a camera and the ability to browse the internet.
I wonder how that gambit by Apple turned out?
Now you know.
