I was bored tonight, which is a good thing, so I emailed our meteorologist out here and got the weather statistics for my entire deployment here and I figured I would share them with you all. (I know it's not really that interesting, but hey, at least a month didn't go by in between posts)

The average temperature for the deployment was 81 degrees. The hottest month was August with an average temp of 100 degrees. The hottest day that month got up to 124. The coldest it got that month was 89. The coldest month, was January, with the coldest day reaching 28. The hottest it got in January was 68.

So as you can see, although the summer was extremely hot, there are still seasons here and it actually gets pretty damn cold. Personally, I was lucky enough to work the night shift the entire deployment, thus not having to subject my body to most of that extreme heat (although nighttime was no picnic either).

Lastly, back in January I talked about them moving Dave to Philly or Richmond. His family chose Philly, so he is at the Moss Rehab center, which I beleive is part of Albert Einstein. I'll be stopping in there to visit him when I get back home.

  1. Paul,
    That's Great News that your buddy will be close by here in Philly to help make for a longer visiting time together!! After you visit Dave, you'll have to let us know if there is anything we can help out with or if we can send some cards/e-cards to him?
    The yearly weather stats there were interesting, too! But, I didn't hear you mention the 4-letter "S" word in your report?
    So, if you would like some "SNOW" sent over in a care package, we can gladly accommodate that the truck-load : ) We're getting hammered here in Philly!!!
    Ttyl - Love,
