So for the past week, the midwest here in the good ol’ US of A has been a bit on the warmish side. As the old saying goes, it’s not the heat so much as the humidity. With a dew point that never leaves the mid 60’s (F), the overall comfort level has been bleah!
I just got done mowing the grass this morning, and believe it or not, it’s actually very green, and there’s been a lot of growth in the past week. Usually when it gets unpleasantly hot, the grass turns brown and basically stops growing. Not this year though. Somehow (and without watering) it’s managed to stay pretty lush. Perhaps it’s because the humidity is keeping everything moist. I dunno, but in some ways I wish I didn’t have to go out there and mow it so much.
So this afternoon I’m kicking back with some Netflix, General Tso’s, and I’m cranking the AC down to the low 70’s. Some days, you just don’t want to face the harsh reality that is currently hotter than hell.
