Whew it's MUGGY!

This is a plot of dew point temperatures from the NOAA station Thomas Point Light, which is near Annapolis. Notice the spike in dew point temperatures on the right side of the graph: this is the dreaded summer moisture I've not been looking for! I guess now that the Chesapeake Bay water temperatures have reached ~ 80 (Thomas Light recorded 81F last hour), ridiculously high dew point temps can be expected any time we get a sea breeze and/or synoptically-driven south wind. This is MUGGY.

Norway, in pictures

Over spring break, back in March, I visited my good friend Trygve Watne in Sandnes, Norway. It was an amazing trip full of good conversation, fun times at the middle-high school where Trygve works, and fabulous scenery. We played curling, ate whale, visited a spectacular fjord, goofed around on the Atlantic coast, took in a concert, and scarfed perhaps my favorite food in Europe: a kebap sandwich!

Here are some pictures:
