What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~
Summer's official beginning according to noaa.gov...June 21, 2010 @ 11:28 GMT. That's 4:28 in my part of the country. I have heard, however, that summer doesn't come to Portland until July 5th. Based on my more than 1/2 century of experience of wet Rose Festivals and Fourth of July fireworks in pouring down rain--I believe it.
No matter when the sun arrives...happy summer, everyone.
