First, Alayne and I wanted to thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences about dear Bentley. It was a crushing loss, and one we are struggling to deal with, but we are so grateful for the outpouring of emotional support and kind words over the past few days.
On a lighter note and a totally different subject, I've written before about this lush, wet New Hampshire climate (well, at least when there's not snow on the ground!), and back in late June 2010 I posted a photo of our weather station showing a 98% humidity reading. We've seen a lot of 98's and 99's since then, but until this morning, never 100% humidity:
After I started taking the first photos I realized the time was off -- it said 4:03 pm -- so I reset it for the current time. I didn't realize the date was off by one day, too, until I uploaded the photos ... so it's showing yesterday's date but it really was this morning! The photo at the top of this post was the foggy view across the front yard, and here's a view to the west across the dog wing and solarium:
It wasn't even raining. Now that's damp!
