I feel quite sorry for some of my friends who live in Columbia, Charlotte or Atlanta because it has been hot here the past few days and, if it is hot here, it must be miserable there! However, even when it is, per the temperature clock thingie at the bank on the way to the church, over 90 degrees, it is still mild enough in the mornings and evenings to ride in the car with the windows down. Amazing.
A few weeks ago I spent some time on the parkway and took some great pictures. It was so cool there that it felt more like air-conditioning than summer breeze. I could spend hours there, but it gets dark pretty quickly around here. The sun rises and sets suddenly, it seems so anyway. I guess it’s because of all the mountain peaks around which to hide.
