The Muggies Are Back
It had to happen folks, the "muggies" (hot, humid, muggy weather) is back. Just the other day I was saying how much I appreciated real spring like weather. Usually, here on the Delmarva peninsula, surrounded as we are by water, we get one, maybe two days of spring. This year? Why I almost lost count of the really nice days. But that's all history now folks; We're back to August, middle of the summer, draining, humid, hot, muggy weather.
Yesterday was a Three Shower Day and yet I still ended up the day peeling my clothes off of me as if I had just spent a half hour in a steam bath.
These are the kinds of days that I don't like doing yard work other than changing the water in my seven bird baths. I just can't take the heat folks.
I remember the oft repeated warning when I was young that the old folks should be especially careful of the heat and becoming overheated. I am there folks. I am old and I quickly wilt under this oppressive, seemingly, non ending heavy humidity of heat. Oh to live in a part of the country where, even if it does get hot, it's a "DRY" heat. I hear that's nothing.
