~Fed up with summer~

Is anyone else fed up with summer?
At 18:20 it was a heat index of 101 degrees, 78% humidity. And because of Tropical Storm Fay, and the still pooling water, the mosquitos are 3X as many, and 3X as big.
And who knows what Gustav is going to do.
I need a break. * 70 degrees and raining strawberries......well......I can dream, can't I?

My body shuts down under those conditions. I could never live in regions with high humidity.

The heat and high humidity in South Carolina keep me indoors, in the air conditioning, most of the summer. I am definitely looking forward to some cool fall weather. I love that crisp, just about to turn cold weather!

Sounds more like you're tired of living in FLA, Quick.

It doesn't make a difference what the season where I live, there's always something to complain about. Except the mosquitos have been non-existent this summer.... weird....

here in southern california, we pretty much have summer all year around. often eat thanksgiving around the swimming pool.

you take a bit to get used to it and then you love it. also can't really handle cold weather anymore.

thank goodness, not much humidity.

When it gets down into the 60's in winter we're all bundled up here in So Cal. Funny thing is, we can easily spot the tourists from the midwest as they would all be in shorts and t-shirts.

Lol, roadfix. I was one of 'em when I first came to Calif. from New Yawk. Yup, I'm so done with the heat. Sunday it was 101 deg, 'bout 97 today. One more month of heat, & hopefully it will be back to 85. Whew. Is it me, or do the Summers seem hotter & longer? Quicksilver, wanna trade & live in earthquake country? The last one was a doozey.

Roadfix, your avatar cracks me up. I want a double-double & a chocolate shake. lol

We didn't have summer. We had spring and fall since mid- June.
