The Pattern Persists

As soon as the heat came, it went. Since this past Winter, Tim (Tim's Weather Blog), has been preaching the consistent NW pattern would stick with us. No matter how much I didn't want to believe him, he was and is correct. My guts told me August and September would be hot, August was for a few days, but overall ended up being the coolest August on record here at OSNW3. I am up for whatever is thrown our way this September (as always), which brings great excitement as September is my most favorite month.
