The temperature topped out at 59 today – sort of cool, but not terrible.  Sunny, with a light breeze.

So I opened the windows.  It was up to 67 inside, and opening the windows for an hour or so dropped it to 65 or 64.  After I closed up the house (I got cold), the temperature rose to 66.  Thermal mass is great!

But that’s not all.  I saw a hummingbird today, at our back feeder.  He was chilly, and looked big and ruffled.  He kept flapping his wings, even though he was sitting on a branch.  May have been trying to stay upright in the breeze, may have been trying to stay warm.  I would have invited him inside, but I don’t speak the language.
