The First "Real" Summer Weekend? 

It's kinda late for the first "real" summer weekend, but Vermont's Agency of Natural Resources thinks this will be it, according to the press release I just received. Apparently, Jason Gibbs, commissioner of the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation, really wants us all to go outside this weekend.

I'm pasting the (tongue-in-cheek?) press release below. And though it's probably going to be nice out, it is supposed to rain a bit on Sunday afternoon. Sorry.

**Official Recreation Weather Alert**

Beautiful Weekend Ahead!
Ad Hoc Commission of Meteorologists Issues Consensus Recreation Weather Forecast for Weekend
Waterbury, Vt. – Some of Vermont’s top meteorological minds have reached an important agreement:  This weekend’s weather is going to be great for outdoor recreation.

Accordingto the commission, the weekend is expected to begin with a spectacular,sunny Saturday with temperatures easily topping the 80 degree mark. Sunday will also be warm and sunny through the afternoon, with cloudsand the possibility of showers moving in from the west later in theafternoon and evening– just as beach goers are rolling up their towelsand campers are heading home after the first “real” weekend of summer.
