I stepped out my tent this morning and was surprised by a very cool breeze. I looked at a themometer and it was 76 degrees. I can't remember the last time it was that cool. It's currently 9:30 am and the temp is only 90 degrees, and usually it has broken 100 by now. The forecast for today is 110 which will seem like a cool autumn day compared to the consistent 130 degree plus temps we have had for so long.

The season is changing.

I enjoy your blog...thank you for what you are doing and the sacrifice you are making being away from your family.

I noticed the "spammers". Here's a suggestion to get rid of them; I saw this on another blog but I'm not sure it works. Go to Settings --> Comments, and then choose Yes for "Show word verification for comments?".

Hey John,

It appears the spammers found your blog... Adjust your Comment Settings to have Word Verification and the spammers will go away because they're generated by prgrams that can't account for the word verification. Keep up the great work. We'll get together and do some fishing when you get back.

God Speed,
Clint Bridges

Hi there John! We were reading your blog and wanted you to know that you, your family and all the troops are included in our prayers daily. Your attitude is amazing, and I am sure it is contageous to your platoon. I promise you a crawfish boil when you return and they are in season. Peace

That is funny and you should know the opposite can also happen. When living in Alaska, after days of 40 below zero, a day of 20 degrees feels so warm and great!

LOL, enjoy the break in the heat.

John, The change in the season is merely an indication that your return home is drawing closer! I here you are not feeling the greatest (from Sis)-hope the drugs you are taking are doing the trick and that you are feeling better soon! Praying for you! Love ya- Lil sis, Mol

I was amazed at how cold it got in Iraq. We always hear about the heat. And maybe it just seemed cold after several months of that. But I'll never forget sitting there in the middle of the night on guard duty, shivering, and wishing I had some of those disposable hand warmers.

But before we knew it, it heated up again.
