sweaty


It's a scorcher here.

My daughter had a soccer game tonight. I watched with the intense sun pounding on my backside, while seated in a folding chair made of kevlar. By the end of the game my shorts felt like I'd spilled a few beers, but spilled them down the back of my pants.

The only other place on earth with such extremes of temperature is Siberia. Just a few months ago we were whining about 40 below windchills, and now we're sweltering with temps in the 90's and 80% humidity.

Have I really just blogged about the weather? Am I really that dull?

It's killing me. I hate this heat and humidity. And yes, I know I complained all spring about the cold and rain. Why is nothing ever moderate here???

You, my dear, are far from dull!
The weather here has been awful.......so hot it's just a chore to go outside, and I'm in FL, I'm suppose to be acclimated to this by now........NOT SO.
I sit through softball all summer in that same Kevlar chair......with sweaty pants, so lovely!

It's like that here too, but we're probably more used to it in Iowa. When my girls and I were in Minneapolis a few years ago, it got up to 100 degrees. Some businesses even closed because of the heat. We laughed about it, but acknowledged that Minnesotans probably laugh when we cancel school for less than a foot of snow too.

About strawberries: the patch we go to in Afton ...anticipates a 2 more weeks of good picking! So you have time! Good luck!
