The Heat is Upon Us

Now is not a good time to talk about the warmth that we were begging for last winter.  The weatherman reported that the high temperature in Morehead City was 99F on Monday, May 31.

We recorded 97 degrees on our front porch while it was still in the shade.  Fortunately we are still dropping below 80F at night, or we would be cooking.

About the only thing that might like this heat is my tomatoes which are thinking about ripening.

I love warm weather, but I am not a fan of heat when it gets over ninety.  It is hard to walk across the sand to the beaches without insulated Crocs when the temperature is above 90F.

This is a good time of year to go fishing early in the morning or to walk the beaches late in the evening.  Or to stay inside and catch up on your paper work.  It is too hot to fish in mid-day.

It might be a good time of year to visit Antigonish, Nova Scotia where the morning temperature on June 1 was 48F.

This weather even makes a biking trip along the Viking Trail in Newfoundland sound nice.

At least all the plants and the yard are watered and ready for the heat here in our spot along Raymond's Gut just off the White Oak River. 

I got my Southern Outer Banks website updated on May 31 along with my real estate search page, so I might just take it easy in the air conditioning on June 1.
