Yesterday we had a cable modem installed. Yippee! Finally high speed Internet access in Ferndale! My computer is still in the shop though. They don’t know what’s wrong with it yet, but at least it’s failing on them too.
Sunday the weather in Ferndale was absolutely gorgeous. I went dirtbiking with Mike Aikmen, who is the husband of Lori’s former boss at West Valley. We left around 9:30 and as we were loading up the bikes I was already getting too warm. We rode around for a few hours (I’m still sore from the exercise) and during one break Mike commented that it must be at least 70 degrees. I looked at him increduously and said it must be a lot hotter than that. On the way back home I looked at the thermometer in the truck and it only read 68 degrees. I guess when the average is in the high 50’s – low 60’s, 68 feels pretty warm. I guess I’ve acclimated to Ferndale’s weather. Yesterday and today the weather was back to normal, foggy in the morning, overcast most of the day.
