212/366 The Dimension of Summer in the South

80 degrees plus on the back porch this afternoon-with plenty more heat to look forward to this week-

This quote about sums it up for me-

“Summer in the deep South is not only a season, a climate, it’s a dimension. Floating in it, one must be either proud or submerged.”
― Eugene F. Walter

  1. Or the Midwest, at the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. From Tuesday through Friday this week we’re forecast to have temps. in the upper 90s, dewpoints in the mid 70s, and heat indices of 105 to 110. Love the old Pepsi thermometer!

    • Yikes! That sounds a lot like here-though without the river. We are just having lovely pop-up thunderstorms now. I shudder to think I used to work in weather like that and somehow managed to survive it-stay cool!

  2. Yup, we are diving in the high 90’s again too…and in Cincinnati we are just with one toe in the South (only cross a bridge over the Ohio river and we are in Kentucky) So any tips for this very Northern girl to become proud of a Southern Summer? xo Johanna

    • ah, RIchmond-I am assuming you mean the Virginia Richmond. I lived there for many years and yes, your description is an apt one, though I think that area could actually claim to have four seasons instead of two which seems to be the case here. Thanks Susan!
