As of yesterday, we've gotten twice the normal amount of rainfall we usually get in July.

That 2.83" is almost the same amount of rain as we got in April, May and June.

As our 90° temps cool into the low 80s, it's the perfect time to celebrate the 84th anniversary of 1936's "heat week;" the coolest temperature recorded that week (these were recorded by the lake, by the way) was 95° and the 106° on July 13 is the hottest temperature ever recorded in Duluth.

Larry Weber has a wrap-up of December, some good news about tomorrow (the sun starts rising earlier!) and a group of Northland residents who weren't just tolerating last weekend's rain ... they were lichen it.
