Big Chuck is Back from 94-Degree Atlanta. Whew…..
I know that many people in our area think that the greatest thing they can do when they retire is move south. And, I will admit, I have given it some thought myself. But then I visit it. And...
I just got back from a three day visit with my daughter Frances and her family. They live in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. I had a great trip and so much fun seeing my granddaughter Reese. But brother, it was hot.
Last Saturday it was 93-degrees and Sunday and Monday were both 94. And it is like that a lot. How do they do it? Well, I actually lived in Houston for 5 years in the late 1970s and that was another hot, hot city. But I was much younger and it didn't bother me.
Today, no way. I am not saying that won't change but for right now I will settle for Upstate New York in the summer. When I landed Monday night in Syracuse the temperature was 60-degrees and man, did that feel great!
How about you? Are you a fan of Southern summer weather? Or does this suit you just fine up here?
