What in the World?

I know that summer in the South  makes us believe in Hell.  If it is hotter than this, I really do not want to go there!  In May we had death and destruction from tornadoes and  floods.  Now in the first week of June the temperature is near 100 and the heat index is even hotter.  Orange ozone warnings are out in cities!  It does not bode well for the rest of summer.  I remember the year our neighborhood pool had to put ice blocks in the water to cool it off so that kids could swim.  We may be headed for another one like that.  Personally I need to stay indoors until October and thank God daily for air conditioning.

Watermelon save us.  One of the few blessings of summer.  I am ready for the first one of the year.  Eating is an indoor sport for me.  No picnics.

Oh, don't forget the incessant sound of trillions of cicadas.  Summer in the south.  I am waiting for winter.
