Here it is my second annual complain about the heat post. It’s too hot. Too hot to do just about anything except park myself in front of the fan between trips to the bathroom because I am drinking so much water.
I don’t know why I live in this part of the country. It’s too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Spring and fall are weekends separating these two seasons. It’s only going to be 96 degrees today but the heat index is going to be 105. For those of you in normal climates the heat index is kinda like the windchill factor. It feels hotter because of the heat that radiates off the concrete pavement and buildings of the big cities. In the winter the wind makes it feel colder than it is so while the temp is relatively mild the outside conditions make it worse. We are also having tropical humidity so that doesn’t help either. My grass is loving this weather however. I cut it last Friday and already it needs to be cut again. It’s going to have to wait, which means more mosquitoes, because it is too damn hot to go outside and push a stupid lawn mower.
About the only thing I can think of that makes this heat bearable is that it slows down the kids a little bit. It doesn’t prevent them from wanting me to go buy one of those big ass pools that leave a gaping hole in my lawn but it does slow them down a bit. I’d take them to the beach but I’m not mentally prepared to expose my pasty white legs or my cellulite ass to everyone just yet. When I see other middle aged moms venture outside in their bathing suits I might but so far it has been a rare sight.
