Sweltering Heat

This heat is getting a little out of hand. Every year we get about two weeks of hot days, not necessarily in a row, where the temp hovers around 90 degrees, and sure enough, we’re getting them right now. I’m not in a position to complain (as if that’s going to stop me) because spring was wonderful and this summer has been a good mix of beautiful warm weather couple with a day or two rain. Just right. We’ve even had rainy evening followed by dry sunny days, which you just can’t beat.

The past couple of weeks, however, have been bone dry, with hot and humid days. The whole country is suffering through it, we’re not alone. Everywhere we go, the grass is turning brown, though the corn fields look fabulous, and our garden is doing very well.

The weather does make for good swimming, however, and we’ve been doing plenty of that. You just can’t beat jumping into a cool lake or pond on a scorching hot day. That’s what summer is all about, right? I do think we could use some rain, but that’ll come in due time.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Léo Byte for the pic.
