Hot & Humid Lazy Days
It's been blisteringly hot here in central Florida as of late. I've taken to staying holed up in the house till after 7 pm, but lately it doesn't truly cool down till well past 10:30 pm. Of course it is only going to get worse before it gets better, since this is August.
Now when I lived in Michigan, August was the best month because it was usually the hottest, but down here in Florida, September tends to be ever hotter than August.....unless a Tropical storm or Hurricane rolls through, then the weather is rather pleasant. (that is if you have power after the storms roll through)
Sometimes I enjoy the heat, if it's not too humid out...which isn't often during the rainy season (summer months), in fact I rather like drought conditions down here, hot and dry. I don't however like the prevalence of forest fires when there is a drought, the smoke and ash defeats the purpose of relaxing outdoors.
In the top photo you can see that there isn't much left of some of the forest around here due to fires, ...but those palms always seem to do okay regardless.
