Something I saw on Facebook today;
“Be the reason someone smiles today. Or the reason they drink. Whatever works.”
Made me chuckle.
Okay, let’s talk about the heat. It could be worse. Much, much worse.. we could live in Texas.
Being from the South, particularly Southeast Texas, I’ve spent many a day in the oppressive heat. Texas summers are not for the faint of heart. The fact is, in Southeast Texas, Houston to be specific, all other seasons bow down to Summer. Autumn is a few short weeks if you are lucky. Growing up we were always hopeful that winter was coming, but most years we were disappointed. Spring slips past you if you blink, running head long into the long, hot, humid summer. (Geez, I’m sweating just thinking about it!)
There are days during the summer months you think will never end. Luckily, most of the homes are air conditioned. Frankly, I don’t know how you could survive without it. The Texas heat is unforgiving and brutal.
So as your guzzling your third glass of water this weekend (don’t forget to hydrate!) my fellow Pacific Northwesters, be grateful that you don’t live in a climate that makes you think you are in a long-term relationship with your AC.
