Quotes of the Day for 9 August 2000 – Weather

The weather here has been sunny every day for over a week, not at all like the Pacific Northwet I grew up in! In fact, it's been almost too hot. But it won't be long before I'm looking back on August wistfully. For perspective, I turned to a few weather quotes - here are a few.
