ANSWERS–

1. Though I like summer (even the heat I don’t mind) I prefer Fall. I like when the weather makes a notable shift, the trees begin to show it, and there’s something nice about that turn of the year; it’s not the middle but it hasn’t quite reached the turmoil of all the end of year holidays.

This meant we could swim in the pond, lay our feet in the creek that ran beside the house, and grill outside. I remember that year too, we had this crazy swarm of ladybugs and they attacked the upstairs bedroom window. Thousands of little black and red bugs clung to the window screen, every now and then one or two slipping through tiny fissures in the netting.265334652_0fddc81d8c_z

4. As of now, we have no 4th plans. It’s supposed to be pretty rainy the next two days. If it clears up, we’ll probably go down the road to Costco because I hear-tell that you can see the Fireworks from Tom Brown park just as well. This way, you can avoid having to actually go into the park and brave the crowds, which are normally insane. (below is what we did last year; this one had a strobe effect.)7510854902_28a287339e_z

5. It has been known to be very hot here, yes. We’re still in Florida but as I have mentioned before, we are in this weird pocket up here where it gets both super hot and super cold. The year I had Elliot, we had heat indexes of 110!

Here’s an excerpt from: http://www.srh.noaa.gov
August – Hottest on Record – Wet Too 
August was the hottest month of the year in Tallahassee. In fact August 2007 was the hottest August observed since records began and the third hottest month of all time behind July 1932 and June 1998. Only four days had cooler-than-normal temperatures during the month. This record was established despite the fact that the mercury never officially hit 100 degrees at the airport. The hottest temperature for the month was 99 degrees on the 9th, 10th, 14th, 15th and 22nd. Daily record high temperatures were established on the 9th, 10th, 11th and 14th. Records for highest daily minimum temperature were tied or broken on the 7th, 11th, 15th, 20th and 23rd. Records for highest daily mean temperature were set on the 6th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 14th, 22nd and 24th.

  1. We definitely don’t get that hot here. We also don’t have the humidity. It rare for us to get above 50% humidity and it is normally in the 30% range. Makes the cool off at night just wonderful.
    Wish we could get some of the rain here. We need it so.

  2. Yea! I am a fall girl too! There is something wonderful about the change of seasons and like you said it is isn’t quiet the end of the year craziness yet either.

  3. Fall is beautiful… had a hard time choosing between spring and fall! 110… yikes! I thought we were bad around 104!! Hope that the weather clears up for you today and you have a wonderful fourth of July!!

  4. I love autumn, too. I love the smell of Hawaiian Tropic suntan lotion. I burn candles that smell like coconut in the summer….I should have included that on my post, LOL!

    Thanks for hosting!
