Hot

 

Sunset

Sweaty, sticky and hot
The temperature’s rising
Ready or not

Steamy, a feverish air
I’m burning up
Doesn’t seem fair

Is it the weather
Or are you to blame?
Didn’t notice the heat
‘Til I saw your flame

Sweaty, sticky, not cool
A flush on my face
And I feel a fool

It is hot today.  Very hot.  It was hot yesterday.  Very hot.  I’m talking 98F or 37C hot.  So I decided to write a hot weather poem.

Or did I? ;)

      That is a little too warm for me. I’m guessing you see more hot weather than we do in New Hampshire, but no matter where you are, hot is hot! Thanks.

      That’s about how I felt… Actually, the humidity was relatively low for a NE heat wave, so I wasn’t as uncomfortable as I sometimes get when it’s that warm. But then, my aversion to the heat is why I do live in the north east…

      Thanks! I know you like a bit of steamy poetry on occasion… I was trying to find a photo that seemed to be heat, but the best I could do was this taken on the Summer Solstice (or there about) three years ago. Glad you liked it :)

      That’s why I live in New England and not Texas ;) I did spend a summer in Texas and that was enough for me. One good thing, though, is that the humidity was relatively low. In July and August we’ll get those high 90s with super high humidity. A lot of us (me) do not have air conditioning, so a week of that, with lows in the 80s, can be brutal. But today is perfect – it went from mid-90s yesterday to mid-50s last night and cooled the house down and today will be mid-70s. Days in the 70s and nights in the 50s is also why I live in New England ;)

        People up north have a hard time with the heat when they are not used to it. We lived in MI through 4 winters and I became very jaded about snow and cold. When you don’t see the grass or sunshine for 6 months it gets really old. I know it isn’t always like that in New England. I spent part of a summer in PA one year and it was gorgeous. I just can’t do cold and snow for so many months 😊

          The problem with New Hampshire is that we see the extremes – it gets very cold and snowy in the winter and yet we can see high heat and humidity in the summer. Oh well, that’s why I like Cape Cod – it gives a buffer to both extremes.

      Luckily it’s going to cool down tomorrow – looking forward to being comfortable when outside again. Thanks for reading. And you too – stay cool.
