Hot


One of the main problems with being a Scottish Highlander in Indiana, is that the Highlands think it is hot when the temperature is above 65 degrees... Today driving in my no longer cooled truck (AC failed just after the warranty did..) the temperature got to 92 degrees, and very humid.
 
Not having the AC is annoying as we can't cool down the interior, but we didn't use it often, as it dries out our skin way too much - even I noticed it. This heat is tiring, and makes for a very uncomfortable Scot. I don't think that it is just being me, that makes it uncomfortable, as The Frog was miserable and panting, in the truck today, and she comes from here. I have to admit though, the thought of being in the glen,maybe wading in the Loch, and eating fresh bilberries from the hillside is very attractive to me at this time of year.

Winter is another time of extremes - In the glen, it rarely gets below 30 degrees, and snow lasts only on the tops of the mountains. Our glen is at 230 feet elevation so snow is gone by midday usually. It rains a lot in winter, but that I never minded. Last winter, here it got down to zero a couple of times - way too cold for me.

I suppose that I am feeling homesick for the glen, and wish that maybe I had stayed there; Then I look at The Frog, and am glad I didn't.

My husband is the same way. Not sure he will ever adjust from Colorado mountain weather to the Texas summers. But he loves it [sign in to see URL] long as the AC is working! speaking of which, our compressor is about to go...

Re: Hot


I grew up in the south, and it's even about to do me in. It got up to 94 Monday, and about 90 yesterday, with humidity rather high. It's horrid. I feel like someone has dumped luke warm water over my head I get to sweating so [sign in to see URL] I HATE to sweat.
No a/c in the house, so I have to fine the coolest parts of the house or where-ever during the day just to keep from frying. Usually, the coolest place is out on the porch where a breeze is usually blowing.

I'm right there with ya [sign in to see URL] your hubby, [sign in to see URL] though I'm a southern belle!!
