Lauren and I woke up to a cool sunny New Jersey Friday. We got up, ate breakfast, had our coffee and headed towards our first event. By the time we got to our first event the sun was still shining, but it had gotten hot…really hot. We were listening to the radio at the event, and the dj announced that there was a heat advisory in effect, not to mention severe thunderstorms were moving through the area.
We checked weather.com to find out what the temperature actually was. The Web site said it was 90 degrees, but felt like 99. Personally, I think it felt like a lot hotter than 99, but I’m no meteorologist. Normally the most popular flavor at our events is the Chocolate Alba Hazelnut, but at our first event today the most popular was the Sicilian Lemon. Not surprising. The sorbets are just so refreshing on days like today.
Thankfully the storms held off at our first event. We weren’t so lucky at the second. We got to Whole Foods in Edgewater and started setting up. We could see the dark clouds rolling in. We had just gotten the awning and shelf up on the side of the truck, when the bottom dropped. It was raining so hard and it was so windy that we had to close the door on the truck to keep everything dry. It rained for a few minutes, then the storm passed, thank goodness. We can’t say we were upset that it rained though. It definitely cooled down after the storm. We still had a great second event despite the rain.
We want to say a special thanks to those who braved the heat and the rain today. We had a lot of fun, and were glad we could make the day better with gelato and sorbet.
