I realize the current dry spell in Tennessee is a potential disaster, but in my “every cloud has a silver lining” way of thinking, it’s certainly made this summer a whole lot more pleasant. I am digging the cool nights and mornings (open windows rawk!), the lack of mosquitoes, the dry heat. It reminds me of growing up in Southern California, where no matter how hot it got during the day, the nights always offered a refreshing, cool breeze.
I’m not digging the fire hazard, my thirsty garden, the economic problems our farmers will face. But it sure is pleasant walking through the neighborhood in the morning.
