It is unseasonably warm up here in the mountains, at least for this time of year. This seems unusual, but maybe it’s just the new new. Later this week, after we leave, they’re forecasting a record high so high that it will be the new record for the whole month. Since all the “local” TV here are actually DC stations, maybe the climate denier in chief will take note. No, he’ll just complain about his AC.
We did a hike today and it was anything but easy, as it was advertised. It was hilly, hot, humid and very buggy. In the South they have these insects that are called gnats. They look like flies to me. There was not a breeze, all the better for the gnats. I’m afraid that I am tired, so no more grousing.
