HOT!

"The sun it did shine. it was too hot to play. So we sat in the house on this 98-degree day."

How hot was it? It was so hot outside today that both dogs ran past me out the front door this afternoon, then turned aroud and CAME BACK IN.

Can someone tell me why I moved here again? After a hour in the back yard with the weed whacker under this insane sun, I can't remember.

  3. Growing up in this heat/humidity, (and I grew up before A/C) we learned that there are two work times in the Louisiana summer. 1) from daylight until about 9 am, and 2) from about 6 pm till dark. The mid-day, you stay inside and work on things inside. ONly mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the mid-day sun.

    1. Now I understand why the grounds crew for the nearby school is out doing the lawn and shrubs at 6AM. Until yesterday, I thought that they just did it to annoy me.

  4. Like Pawpaw my childhood was in houses, vehicles and schools w/o AC. While the heat and humidity in Middle TN weren't always as bad as LA it was still hot. Most of the high ceilinged dog trot houses that were still around then are long gone now. I still remember the (to a child) enormous windows and doors. With just a few fans and shade trees they were comfortable house in summer but cold in winter. And yeah, I remember the early to mid morning and late evening work shedules.

  12. I've done time in Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, and Alabama in the summer. 'Twas there that I learned what "hot" really meant. Then I spent a couple of weeks in the Philippines and discovered that, like John Snow, I knew nothing.

    But yeah, it gets hot down there. My recommendation? Visit air conditioned museums. But you knew that.

    I need to get down there one of these days. Preferably in the winter. :)

  13. Awww Heck, Murph, it's just the beginning of July. It ain't got hot around here yet! I recommend staying inside for the entire month of August. Try to stay hydrated if you have to go out.
