Thank you, Amanda (and Sandy) for the weather updates. I truly do
appreciate the information, here, even as I have difficulty interpreting
it . . .

Define "warmer." I mean, in the past week, I have walked around
in shorts and a t-shirt; today; I'm quite comfortable in long pants and a
sweatshirt. Sandy said something about a light jacket for the daytime
and something more substantial for evening: I was planning on bringing
my tasteful L.L. Bean three-season jacket, but will I also need my big
purple parka which makes me look like a California Raisin?? (I've
already determined that I'll prbably be happier if I dig out my winter
gloves, stowed away before the arrival of visitors last week.)

I find it incomprehensible to think of my bathing suit in the
same breath as my California Raisin Parka . . . (and are we serious
about bathing suits, here? There was a wonderful whirlpool in Calgary, I
recall, but Andrea and I hadda make a quick run to town for Whirlpool
Attire before we could use it . . . )

All right, I'll leave my shorts at home . . .

Thanks much, Amanda (and Sandy) for the weather updates. I'm not
trying to be obstreperous, but gee, fashion is SUCH an important part of
the Inkshed Experience . . .
