Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video or slide show of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Late Spring at Lake Johnson
If you live in North Carolina, you likely experienced one of the most memorable Memorial Days, weatherwise, you can recall. Temperatures in the 70s, low humidity, cloudless skies. For all three days. Better weather you won’t find in these parts outside of mid-fall. Hopefully, you were able to take advantage.
Today, back-to-work day for many of us, was a little more seasonal. High in the mid-80s, higher humidity. Sunny skies, but with a late afternoon threat of rain. Summer weather has begun. If you’d forgotten what that’s like, we spent a few minutes with a video camera at Raleigh’s Lake Johnson. The good news? It may not be Memorial Day weekend weather, but not too bad all the same.
Enjoy this preview to summer.
