SUMMER AROUND HERE is usually a 90-90 deal. You know, 90 degrees with 90 percent humidity.
Except this past week it's been 100-plus degrees with 99 percent humidity. It's unfit for human habitation, and a lot of outdoor activities have been curtailed.
Second String Music's new location has AC. Sheryl and I have been really pleased with the foot traffic so far. We think the heat is actually keeping people from venturing out in general, but there are some hardy souls out there who don't let it bother them.
Had some fun at The Whig yesterday, going down the water slide at Indian mounds pool. Tonight we head to the Mays clan gathering at Spring Lake for fireworks and more fun.
Stay cool, friends!
