When are we...........?

Stepping onto the walkway this afternoon, the evening sun played on the flowers we staged on the walk. We'd decided to add more color in the beds out back, but it's been so hot and we've both been too slammed to plant them. Maybe later.

I'm off tomorrow and a weather front drifted down from the direction of Montana and cooled things off a little. The temps fell from a million degrees to something only marginally cooler than Satan's tongue with a mouth full of habaneros. But the most significant change was the humidity.

One of the perks of living in the south is that our weather gets nice early in spring and stays nice late into the fall. But it can be brutally hot and humid in the summer months. Staying here also gives us the right to complain about how hot it is. Jilda's favorite whine is, "Why don't we move to Colorado?" Of course, she will whack me when she reads this.

Y'all stay cool and enjoy the flowers.

  1. Doesn't Colorado get a ton of snow in the winter? I'd rather suffer humidity than shovel show all winter.

  3. Our weather has been up and down. Thank goodness we have not had the extremely hot temperatures or too many hot days in a row. Stay cool.

  4. Our weekend was the typical hot and humid we get up here but tonight it's going down to around 54de and that's perfect sleeping weather. However, the pool will be chilly all week as it's not going to be super hot. I like that just fine! We could use rain but since it's a holiday weekend it can hold off until next week. My son wants to move to Alabama one day....maybe he'll be your neighbor!

    1. There's plenty of room. Tell him to bring his sunglasses and don't be foolish like me and buy a black vehicle:)

  6. I love it though. Id rather be hot than cold any day. Although, we have been in the high 90's, the dip into the 80's the past couple of days were a bit more comfortable.

  9. Humidity was a huge factor when I was growing up in Illinois. Huge. Now, here I am in desert California, and humidity briefly moved in for the three digit heat.
