It’s the middle of May and most of us in Bakersfield know that summer arrives too early here. However, these past couple of days, the temperature in Bakersfield has been accommodated to what most of us would expect as typical Spring-like whether. So today, Bakersfield had the perfect weather to enjoy for a day at Riverwalk Park.
On Friday, Bakersfield had a shot of luck in regards of weather. Temperatures rose up to a high of 80 degrees Fahrenheit and settled in the upper to mid-70s. The sky was mostly clear with some small passive clouds and the nice breeze flowing in and out. To me and a few friends, this was a good day for a barbeque at the park.
Typically, not many people would like to hang out in the park when the temperatures rise up to the 90s and 100s, but Friday was one of those once in a while days that was seen as perfect. Anyways, some friends and I decided to take advantage of the nice weather with a barbeque at Riverwalk Park. However, the only thing that could prove irritable was the frequent occurrences of strong winds of blowing dust and flying picnic utensils. It was not too hot to play some sports too. The temperature was bearable to play some soccer and volleyball without breaking too much sweat!
I guess Bakersfield finally beat the heat…for now.
