HAPPY SUMMER! Summer begins today. The forecast is 103 degree for Corning today. It was already 79 degrees when I arrived at my office at 8:15 AM. It is predicted to be even hotter this weekend. It seems only a short while ago that I was bemoaning the cold, wet weather! While hot weather can certainly produce discomfort, I much prefer it to cold weather.
