A Cold Day in August

A Cold Day in August

Liner Notes: 

So as we travelled from Drumheller, the temperature dropped like a stone from about 20C to 11C. It had been 28 at Medicine Hat when we stopped there for lunch. We were all dressed for summer weather-- we had packed for 'fall' weather for our drive in the mountains, assuming it would be cooler there. But this caught us by surprise.


it's a cold day in August
11 celsius outside
after the rains broke the heat

it's a cold day in August
and the broken AC
means warm air blasts at my seat

it's a cold day in August
and my bare legs feel cold
having put on shorts this morning

it's a cold day in August
we've changed climate zones
pretty much without any warning

it's a cold day in August
but tomorrow
we get to see
the mountains
and we're happy

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Nice slice of life, and that guitar sounds lovely. Wish it were a cold day in August here. Have a great time in the mountains!

We get days like thins in the winter where the temperature changes as much as 25F or 15C when crossing (or being crossed by) a cold front and the winds shift from warm out of the south to cold out of the north just like that.

I've had that experience that before. I like those days. This song has some nice forward momentum. I get the sense of traveling and expectations to come.

I like the rhythm of this one, it works well with your delivery of the vocals. Another fine tune!
