I mentioned before just how incredibly hot the South can get.
We’re still in Spring- May 20th, 2010, and the temperatures are already in the 90s. The worst part is that the air is also incredibly humid, making for a muggy outside.
These kind of temperatures will not typically bother you if you stand still and stop moving in them. Most people in the South try to take some initiative to stay busy, so for most of us, it gets terrible hot and isn’t hard to sweat.
Car air conditioners come in handy at this time of the year.
Speaking of which, did you know that it actually uses more gasoline to roll down your windows than it does to use your air conditioner? That sounds counter-intuitive, but it has something to do with physics and the pull the air makes on your windows!
As hot as the Spring has been already, the Summer will probably feel like hell has cracked open. I’ve never actually tried to fry an egg on the sidewalk, but I have suspicions that will happen this year.
Of course, the good thing about the weather being so hot is that now, it’s time to go swimming! My friends are getting their swimming pools ready, and everyone’s choosing bathing suits and getting ready to get in a cool pool.
Better than swimming is getting in a hot tub at night. Of course, this can leave you open for mosquitoes, which we’ll discuss in a blog in the near future.
To allay anyone’s fears, I haven’t forgotten about the grilled cheese series I was doing- I just haven’t had a chance to write about it recently. I’ll get around to that soon, though, and explain the final evolution of grilled cheese.
Stay cool, guys!
