Okay, I gave in yesterday and closed up our un-air conditioned cottage up in Michigan and, dirty laundry in tow, headed for home in Illinois until this blast of high heat breaks. I must say, it's nice to be able not to sweat at every turn, and sleeping through the night is a wonderful concept as well.
Well, all that "lake" laundry is washed, dried, and put in the basket to haul back up to the lake tomorrow morning (fingers crossed!) and a run to the store for a few supplies is in the offing for today. According to the current weather forecast, a "cold" front is supposed to descend upon this area later today and provide that welcome relief.
Of course, those forecasts often miss the mark in so many cases. I'm hoping this isn't one of those times. In the meantime, I'll look ahead to more times like the one pictured here.
Stay cool, all...MLA
