Yesterday, Betsy and I went to Tom Lake to swim because it was too stinkin' hot to do other things! Well, they finally started working on the roads up there and oh boy, what a mess. They should have closed the road while they worked if they were going to make that much mess. Needless to say, I opted to not head up the trail, today, because I knew it wouldn't be much better. 89 degrees is too hot with this humidity!
So, today we just headed to Lake Superior. I got in, all the way, twice. But, the water is cold ~ offshore wind. It's actually hotter by Lake Superior than inland. But, both places are too hot. I had intended to stay there a while and play in the water to stay cool. But, with the heat, the biting flies that one finds on the nice days of summer, came out. They were chewing the heck out of Betsy and me. We made it about an hour and headed home. Neither of us could stand the flies any longer!
So ~ we have summer ~ and it's too hot to enjoy it!!!
