In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Eighty by Eight

Locally, the high humidity leads to little radiation cooling overnight, so the early morning temperature hovers in the upper 70's, unless there's a thunderstorm. The usual result is a temperature of at least 80 degrees by 8:00 in the morning.

We've reached that condition, so the next few months will be a repeat of that pattern. If you've never worked at night in temperatures just below 80, with near 100 % humidity, don't go searching for the experience. It's not pleasant.


  1. Too many graveyard shift with eighty degrees and a hundred percent humidity.


    1. ...and mosquitoes. I've literally raked them from my arms, while working.

  2. This is the one thing I really abhor about living in the south: long, long stretches of summer where it doesn't cool down overnight. (I grew up in Ohio, where summer night temperatures in the 50s were not uncommon).

    And it seems like every stink in the world gets trapped under those conditions.

    1. It can make summer miserable. The trade-off is winter days when the low is the upper 40's and highs in the low 70's. When you add brilliant sunshine, it beats any blizzard by far.
