Weather — August 2009

NOTE on temperatures: The Rock County Airport readings from the high on August 11 onward, are very close to ours; before that we ran 4 to 9 degrees warmer. Since we did not change equipment here, I believe that they may have replaced their thermometer, though I have no real proof of this.
