The Potomac River here in the area called the Northern Neck of Virginia
Please forgive the delay in my post today. I was experiencing "connection problems." A spur-of-the-moment trip took me from the river house here in Virginia near the Potomac River to someone's home in a lovely but very secluded area. Beautiful and wooded, but no connection. Thus. . .the delay in my post. I just returned to the river house now, so I'll make this post short.
I grew up in Northern Virginia, so I was used to the
summer heat and humidity that is ever-present Back East, as I call it. Thankfully the river house has A/C, so when it gets hotter in the afternoon, I flip that switch and cool off. My house in Colorado actually does not have A/C by choice. The humidity is low in Colorado, so any heat we have in the summer simply does not feel hot and sticky even with all that Colorado sunshine. Of course, I'm someone who can more easily take heat than cold. :) That helps.
How hot is it where you folks are? Hot and sticky? Barely warm? Cloudy and muggy?
