At long last the heat wave has broken! Very early Monday morning, a cool front blew in, and for the first time in more than a month, we had temperatures below 100 (F). High today (Tuesday) was 88 (F). Right now it is 68 (F).
But wouldn’t you know it… there is a trade-off, at least for me there is. As often as not when a front blows in, the change in weather leaves me with a sinus headache. For two days, I have been feeling the pressure right above my eyes. Fortunately, unlike our ancestors who had no choice but to live with discomforts, we have sinus meds galore. I have been sampling a few over-the-counter palliatives. Whether it is the meds working or nature simply ran its course, I do not know, but in any event I am feeling better. I do love this cool weather. Nice to sleep with the window open and not feel like I am in a sauna. Even nicer not to have to run the air conditioning all night!
