June 2, 2007 14 degrees F
I have been dressing in multiple layers from head to toe to keep warm. But on Saturday, June 2, the wind was low (not enough to turn the windmill), the sky was almost cloudless, and air pressure was rising. Our temperature reached 14F...a heat wave! Midmorning I went to my tent to shed clothing and wore jeans with one layer of long underwear and even a t-shirt! Now, if I was at home in Idaho, 14F wouldn't seem like a heat wave. It was an absolutely gorgeous day in Greenland. And with the high pressure, I found myself walking without heaving breathing. Then to add another component, was the fresh snow that had fallen during the night. Hard to imagine that it could get much better
Check out the temperature graph that I have attached.
