My Original Hometown was Scorching Hot!

I lived in an area of Nashville, Tennessee for 23 years.  I never experienced to my knowledge, anything like 106-109 degrees in the summertime!  With the humidity, it must of been a real “killer”…without air conditioning, it could be for some people.

Even though I have not been a proponent of “global warming”, it is obvious that something is different.  Such a beautiful part of this country, it is hot enough with just the regular high 90’s temps in a normal summer.  And it is usually in July-August!

If you are one of the brave souls living through this heat, be sure and be careful and remember that your body is not used to this.  Take extra precautions and stay inside when possible.  I have adjusted to a drier climate, so I will be thinking of you today from my deck in Boise, where it is dry and more pleasant.  Oh, well, we have our heat waves too!

  1. Yes, Paula. When I was growing up we did not have air-conditioning until I was in high school and that was window types. I mostly remember being hot at night at midnight even sleeping in almost nothing! I have a girlfriend who lost her grandmother in the country one summer without air in the 1970’s. You might have to go stick your head in a freezer somewhere! I know people who have done that!

  2. Hi Mary, It is very hot in Ga too-unusually so for this time of year. there has been lot of storms happening in the tropics and just maybe some of this causes upsets in weather. I am concerned for the elderly in weather like this, hoping all have family to check on them.
