“And the heat goes on, and the heat goes on. Sun keeps pounding a rhythm to the brain.” Everyday Nancy, the weather girl, keeps telling us today will be hotter than yesterday and tomorrow will be hotter than today. It was hot yesterday but, the humidity was low enough that it wasn’t too bad. More of the same for today, and for another week for that matter.
We do seem it be in a pattern of weather extremes. Last summer we experienced the wettest summer on record, last winter we experienced days on end of cold weather. At least this weather is a lot better than either of those scenarios.
At 6:28 this morning it officially became the first day of summer – and we were up to witness it. Yay, “It’s summertime, summertime, sum, sum, summertime.” Summertime is one of my four favorite seasons of the year.
Speaking of summertime, Judy has been looking at our trip northeast that is coming up in just a few weeks. As always, we struggle with finding reasonably priced places to stay along the route getting to Maine. A few prerequisites are: One, don’t wanna drive more than five hours a day. Two, don’t wanna drive more than two days back to back (Alex doesn’t even wanna do that). Three, don’t know what three is.
We plan to spend a few days at Raccoon Valley before journeying on, so we are considering that as our starting place. Raccoon Valley is only about three hours from where we are currently parked. Four/five hours from there brings us into Virginia, next would be Pennsylvania, followed by Connecticut, and then arriving in Maine. So we are looking for someplace in Pennsylvaina to spend a couple of days.
We will be “picking up” Randy and Terry along the way. They are currently located in Dover, Pennsylvania (which is near Hershey) so that would be the area where we would like to spend at least a couple of days. We have contemplated the Gettysburg area although we’ve been there twice before. If anyone has any ideas, leave us a comment to let us know. Thanks!!
Well, yesterday was Father’s Day and we celebrated it with a cook-in; that’s what you do when it’s super hot outside. Matthew, Jackie, Catia, Kalina, and Radek came for hot dawgs, potato salad, beans, Jello, and no bake cookies. We huddled around the air conditioner while cooking the dawgs on our electric grill; no S’mores, though, air conditioners don’t do a very good job at cooking marshmallows. A good time was had by all!! Hope the rest of you dad’s out there had as good of a time as I did.
And, I guess, that’s it for today. Be safe, have fun, and God bless.
