This Saturday sky brought to you from strangely bug free northern Minnesota. Taken around 7 pm, Saturday, July 15 – three slightly different photos from the same spot as the temperature hovered above 90F and the humidity was high enough to give us that Minnesota sauna feel.

Ah the pines make me feel like home! :o) Glad you had a better vacation this time around, even with the heat!
Nice photos. I can imagine the humidity! Hope you had a good time and Jess is recovering.
Lovely sky! I sympathize with the humidity. I’ve always lived in the South and you never really get used to it.
Beautiful sky! I completely understand about humidity. It’s been in the upper 90s all weekend, although the humidity has been lower than normal.
All the bugs must have moved to Virginia. I don’t remember seeing so many creepy, crawlie and flying things in a long time!
Frankly – I’d prefer the bugs to the oppressive heat and humidity. You can spray for bugs. Hope you had a grand time – glad all are back and in one piece!!
MMmmmMMMMmmMMMMmmmm sauna. MMMmmMMMMmmmMMMmmmM.
Oh wait. Except not.
But pretty! And so bright! So light! I love summer skys.
SKIES. I have a degree and am an editor for an (erstwhile) living. I should be so ashamed of myself, but really? Too tired.
What a beautiful blue sky! But no bugs? What I’ve always heard about Minnesota in the summer is ‘humid and bug-gy.’ But I guess no bugs is a good thing!
i am back!
i posted breifly about my encounter with canada.
did not find beautiful wools anywhere.
beautiful sky up there by the way… seems hot though.
I see the Humidity Pump in the bottom photos — that little teensy cloud is actually the spot where all the hot air comes through from the parallel universe! Makes sense to me…
Is that your camera smoking? hehe
Yuk, the sauna feel. I had to sit in next to the sprinkler for most of Sunday!
It’s bug free because the heat has fried up all the multi-legged beasties.
Woo hoo! I’m commenting!
we have the same sky!!!
Those photos actually make one thing of being cool; all those nice shade trees. 🙂
