red sky at night …

It’s been a miserable couple of days – the temperatures have stayed above 80o and the humidity is so close it’s like walking through a sauna. And the forecast is the same for the rest of the week. (Venice was hot and humid, but Rome was just hot and we still walked from Monti to the Vatican. It’s the humidity that I hate most.)

Recently someone asked a friend, who now lives year-round in Florida, what happens during the summer months down in the sunshine state; the answer was great, “We do what you guys do up here during winter; we stay indoors.”

There are a number of small projects that I want to do in the backyard, but they will have to wait for better weather. (The above image was taken right before a summer-storm and the sky was a deep brownish-red.)
