Summer is here and for once the forecast looks excellent for the week ahead (including the weekend). Tuesday, June 21 marks the Summer Solstice, with the season officially arriving at 5:16pm. Spring was far from normal but there are upsides; the golf greens are as green as we've seen them, the mountains look spectacular with their summer snow cap, and there aren't many pesky bugs to bother BBQ goers. Looking around the globe it's apparent that crazy weather can no longer be considered abnormal.
