Here comes the sun

After six looong months of one of the coldest winters on record, this ‘heatwave’ we have been experiencing is a slice of summer heaven. Anyone who complains it’s too hot and says “I’m melting”, has surly forgotten the mid-April snow storm and the soul crushing dreary gray and cold that followed us well into spring. We have been experiencing sun and heat like it’s…well… summer! Yes, my friends it’s summer and July, so hot weather is a given.

After the grueling winter, I have promised myself: if there is sunshine, I will be outside to enjoy it as much as possible!!! When I feel the sun on my face, my cells are responding with jubilant vigor. It’s like my skin wants to drink in the sun. I know my vitamin D levels are rebounding and that my body is thrilled!

Oddly, the humidity has been lower than any other summer I can recall. Dry heat + sun = happiness.

How are you enjoying the summer?

    We are enjoying the summer too with the children home on school break. However the humidity in Florida, is something! Love the strawberries, thereโ€™s a field close by where theyโ€™ll open to go strawberry picking – so fun! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’›

    You make me a little curious now, exactly what temperatures are we talking about? We’ve been enjoying “cooler temperatures” in the mid 90’s for three days, and love it! Usually we have 115++ this time of the year. Your photos looks inviting ๐Ÿ™‚

    Until yesterday, we had a streak of 10 days (starting at the end of June) that were well into the 90’s, close to 100 degrees every day. Over the weekend of July 1st, we had a heat advisory that was upgraded to an Excessive Heat Warning lasting 2-3 days. A day with a high temp of 98 would have a heat index of 104, etc.. Most of the North East can become very humid and heat exhaustion can overwhelm people, especially the very young and old. Those who live in cities (New York, Boston, Philly), where the temps were climbing due all the black top/cement, and high rises — just trapping the heat, makes it very dangerous for those without air conditioning. I would say that the North East is well equipped for the snow and cold, not so much for the heat. ๐Ÿ™‚
