Friday respite

The heat wave hasn’t quite broken just yet, though it has moderated enough to feel some relief from the worst of it. The humidity is worse than soupy—you could cut it with a knife.

This morning around 3 a.m. I was awakened by the sound of a rain shower and had to get up to close a few windows. The shower didn’t amount to much, but I could feel the temperature had lowered to a point that was comfortable. Comfort is a relative term. Once the temperature drops back to normal levels, last night’s comfort may feel sweltering, but last night it was just fine.

If there was ever a week that I am glad that camp was closed for the holiday week, it was this one. Of course, the summer is still pretty young so I may yet get slammed with some awful heat, but I’ll worry about that when it happens.

What an exquisitely serene shot! So quiet and peaceful.

Woodswalker: Quiet and peaceful yes, but it looks better now that it's no longer 100 degrees!
