Record breaking

(June 21, 2012) With temperatures nearing 100 degrees in our area, many weather records were broken yesterday, the start of summer 2012. It was hot and humid, and today promises more of the same from a front coming out of the west.

Health professionals recommend staying inside air-conditioned spaces or keeping cool in swimming pools or at guarded beaches.

Cooler weather is forecast to begin this weekend.

Longest day of the year

(June 18, 2012) Summer begins here at 7:09 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20, at the summer solstice. It is the longest day of the year, with the shortest night, but not necessarily the warmest.

Each year, the timing of the solstice depends on when the Sun reaches its farthest point north of the equator. This occurs annually on June 20 or 21 in North America, depending on the time zone. The word solstice is from the Latin solstitium, from sol (sun) and stitium (to stop), reflecting the fact that the Sun appears to stop at this time (and again at the winter solstice).

Summertime features a variety of warm weather activities and special events. Check out Recorder Community Newspapers for details as well as comments at the online blogs here.

(June 13, 2012) Schools are winding down, if not already closed, for the summer break, and graduations are being celebrated from kindergarten to college. The message is the same for all -- it's the time for commencement, or a new beginning.

For some it's the start of vacation time, for others it's looking forward to a new school, for others it's entry into a new career. Best wishes to one and all!

You can read about the many commencements and new beginnings in Recorder Community Newspapers and right here online in their many blogs.
