Kayak levantado por ballena en Puerto Madryn
JULY 23, 2014 - Today’s high was 113 degrees.
It is still in the high 90’s and it is 10:00 p.m.
A friend and co-worker posted this on her Facebook page and today I felt it. We are also in for a heat-warning tomorrow.
The breeze, when it did stir, didn’t seem to help. It just felt like you had opened the oven door. I think the hair on my arms got scorched. That was standing in the shade. I am not even talking about getting into a hot car after work.
The good news is we are almost through July. The bad news is August and September are ahead of us and we are all tired of being hot and people start getting cranky. The electric bills destroy your budget but you can’t not crank it up and hope the electrical grid holds.
I keep thinking November through May are gorgeous pay offs. When everyone else is shoveling snow and slipping on ice, I will be wearing t-shirts, cuts-offs, and sandals, and eating on street-side bistros and enjoying outdoor festivals. The glory days … I miss you.
But when I have a few days off in August, I am headed to the higher country just to remember what it feels like to be able to move about comfortably. A couple trips to the mountains always help get you through.
COME ON OCTOBER! No wonder I love autumn.
