Daily Edge for Sun. Aug. 12

HOP ALONG HEAT.  Strong southerly winds will bring one more day of extreme warmth to the region before a cool front rolls in overnight and sends the steamy weather south.  We look ahead at that and what’s to come in today’s Three Things.

THREE THINGS

 

MODERATION.  Temperatures will drop to seasonal levels, with highs in the 80s through the end of the week, following today’s last shot of warmth.  Relatively calm and dry conditions will also prevail, making it an ideal stretch to get back on the water.

 

TAKE A SHOT.  The Scheels Shotgun Demo is taking place on Thu. Aug. 16 at Capital City Sporting Clays.  Come try out dozens of shotguns from Remington, Winchester, Benelli and more in field, sporting and trap models – FOR FREE!  Bring your own hearing and eye protection.

 

WOODY.  The Woodhouse’s toad is commonly found this time of year in lit backyards where it feasts on nocturnal insects like crickets and other bugs.  The toad is named for Samuel Woodhouse, 19th Century surgeon, explorer and naturalist, who also has a scrub jay named in honor of him.
Stay Sharp!
