Out of the Blue

Hey, today is the first day of summer here in the US, while it's still spring in Europe until tomorrow. It seems like it's been summer for some time now, as I heard many references to it being summer all through the spring, perhaps because it's been so darned hot. And to those in the southern hemisphere, happy winter, I guess.

And man, are they pushin that Avengers movie...

No crap, right? Isn't there a Thor movie slated for 2009? Makes a person wonder if they will be doing Captain America next. Unless they think that's a bit too patriotic considering all the whatnot going on in the world today. Nevermind... looks like it's titled "The First Avenger: Captain America". WTF?

Just got back from seeing Hulk - not that great, I'm afraid. Hopefully they'll bring the cast back (esp Norton) for a second, better movie...

And man, are they pushin that Avengers movie...

Boy, that sure wasn't the case here in the Northwest. I think this last week was the only extended decent stretch of weather we've had since last fall. It's beautiful today though and I'm off early from work - think I'll take a nap.

You've spoken too soon, at least here in Van it's clouded up again...

I've only been to SD once, but it was very beautiful...a little too rural for my tastes, but still beautiful.

I grew up in Rapid City - well, "east" of Rapid, it is called "Rapid Valley". It is still the city. More like 'burb life. Not sure how many are familiar with the area, but it is very close to the dirt/clay race track in Rapid.

(Now my father was from PRESHO South Dakota.....1 paved street. hehehehehehe)

ya I think the first "day" of summer is tomorrow, while summer "starts" today. I also think we go through this every year lol

I sat on the back porch this AM with the dogs, it being a balmy 70+ already at 7:30 am - I thought to myself.......I really miss being a kid in South Dakota on summer vacation.

Interesting Overflow. I wiki'ed solstices and you're right. It's 23:59 UTC, so summertime has pushed it into the 21st for me.

I always took it to be June 1st but many people take it to be June/Sept/Dec/Mar 21st, as the 21st of June is the longest day and December 21st the shortest (in the northern hemisphere, natch). I think it's a cultural thing. I don't know why today is the first day of summer for Blue, what's that about?
