Not all is what it seems

Dead Creek, Jerome Farm Visitor Area

Driving very slowly, windows down, very cool breeze going through the vehicle, grasshoppers jumping, gravel crunching. I think...Oh, what a cool breeze that is...the temperature has really gone down. Lovely.

Not.

The cool breeze...the air conditioner was still on. 

Recuperating from a few days of lousiness, today has been good.
Dead Creek, Addison, Vermont

I'm sorry you had a few days of lousiness. I hope you're feeling much better. We all get those yucky days. This photo is incredible. I like everything about it - the open road, the trees in the distance, the Summer fields, the mystery of the sky, and the peaceful drive.

Have a sweet day.

What a beautiful picture, May. You had me believing for a moment. :)

I hope you can get relief from the heat sans air conditioner soon!

Sheri,
Thank you, I am feeling better energy. It is strange how too much heat and humidity can wear a person down.
That brief moment thinking the temperature was cooler made my day. :)

Becki,
Believing can be a refreshing memory. If I need to pretend it is cooler, then I now know how. :)

Marie,
Cooler and dryer air is on its way according to weather forecasts. :)

The heat where you are sounds grim. If we could average Vermont and Michigan we might both be happier this summer. At least more comfy!

Jeanie,
Cooler weather is forecast. The heat waves this summer might be done with this side of the Mississippi. :)

It's quite impossible for me at the moment to contemplate what you must be feeling like in the humidity and heat. I have lived in very hot places that had dry heat and survived but I'm not sure I could survive in yours.

Dry climate heat stings the skin. Heat and high humidity wilts the spirit. The air almost feels like an entity breathing sauna breath in your face. It is admirable there are people that live in such environments.

That's certainly an impressive-looking sky! Hope your heat has decreased somewhat. Here we've had a few days of heat but the humidity hasn't been too bad. Today, after some rain, it's much cooler

Maryanne,
It is much cooler here as well. Thsnk goodness because another day, I'd have to hold an ice bag all day.

The heat broke here on Monday.

Yay! That is good news!
It is cooler here as well.

I have to say though, I am concerned that today I found myself looking at air conditioners at the store like they're a huge block of Hagen Daz coffee ice cream.
I am determined to tough it out with no A/C. :)
