Too Darn Hot!

I just got back from taking Connor for his late night walk, and it’s still about 90*F at midnight! Of course, in the dead of winter, we whinge about the cold, but you can always put more clothes on!With the heat, there’s only so much you can take off!IMG_3502Connor does all he can to stay chill!


  1. Hi Meg,
    I hear you! It has been hot here, too. But not 90* at midnight! I love that photo!
    Stay cool--it has got to break soon.

  2. Not as hot here. The heat + humidity is brutal. xxpeggybraswelldesign.com

  3. Baltimore air unhealthy today and worse tomorrow. Take care, dear Meg.

  4. Connor knows how to stay cool! Hope you also find a cool spot to beat the heat Meg.

  5. I totally feel for you. It's hot everywhere, but at least it's ten degrees cooler here at night than it is in Baltimore. But you're right, there's a limit to how many clothes you can dispense with. I've been wearing the same three unlined seersucker jackets for the last month--people probably think they're all I own--and I'm getting ready to take my seersucker suit jacket to the tailor to have the lining removed. That might help a little and add one more thing to the rotation.

    But the best thing about seersucker is not just that it's cooler than most fabrics, but that, unlike summer-weight wool, it can get wet, as in your first photo. Of course, I don't wade into fountains, but on my way to catch the bus downtown in the morning, I always walk past the house with the heavy-duty sprinklers going, and somehow--with my poor timing, you know--I always manage to get soaked. Oh, well. With my wet clothes (madras ties are essential for this) and the A/C going full blast, I'm the coolest guy on the bus--in one sense of the word.

  6. It's supposed to be 101 on Friday and already the world here in Kansas is sizzling. All I can do is run out and change the position of the water hoses and run inside. I now garden in cool max clothing so it wicks away moisture and dries quickly. I might do the "Connor" if things get hotter. If you haven't read Feast of Love by Charles Baxter, you might enjoy it since you are a "night owl". Stay cool, way cool.

  7. Totally O/T, but Meg, have you seen this spread:
