Tracking the temps

There are only two measures of temperature that matter in our house: the reading on the souvenir Shiner Beer thermometer in the coolest room and the reading on the Galileo thermometer in the warmest room. It’s now officially fall. All summer long, the Galileo glass blobs, once having sunk to the bottom of the glass tube, lie there inert; all winter long, the blobs, once having risen to the top of the glass tube, float there in one stack of five. But there are those in-between times of the year. This morning, not one, but two, blobs rose from the buttom of the tube to the very top of it. The window fans can now be set to run on lower speeds. Summer is truly over!
