Heat wave

We, like much of the country have been dealing with a heat wave that's been leaving us hot and bothered for over a week.
I was looking through pictures and came across these shots that were taken in February. I thought I would share them to help cool us off and to remind us that it could be worse!

Looking out our living room window.


Side yard



Our road

And on that note, I'm quickly reminded that I love summer!

This was a great idea! I feel better already:)

Terri said...

Oh those pictures were marvelous - I can't wait for some cooler temps!

Same here I do feel better. At least in Summer we can go somewhere or find a good shade and that's it we are okey. While a snowy day like this is sometimes depressing. But if I have somebody with me who is willing to walk and take pictures around it would be cool ^_^

WTG make people feel bad for complaining. LOL
I like summer, but, I think Fall is my favorite.

I remember these from winter! So beautiful! We had a lovely warm day today, but yesterday morning it was 8/46 first thing in the morning! Wore my winter jammies! I'm content with each season though my fav is always fall - after the first freeze and the bugs are gone, LOL!

Dear Mari, I have heard about this awful heat wave throughout parts of the States and Canada! It's madness but then again, looking at those pictures...I also feel like the sun is more than welcome to shine!:) Anyway, no heat wave here in Norway, just cool, rainy summer days.:)

Have a lovely summer!

That does make me appreciate the heat!

You really do have extremes in weather....from oh so cold to oh so hot!

I'm trying to "keep my cool" this summer in this heat.

Hugs,
Kat

"Hot and bothered" indeed. Can't say I feel much cooler for having seen your pictures, though. They ARE good reminders of the cold and beauty of winter. Guess we need each season to appreciate the others.

I'll take the snow over this heat. I'd rather be cold.

Sweet Tea said...

BEautiful, snowy photos. The only time I see that sort of thing is in a photo, which is absolutely enough for me as I'm a Summer gal too. Still, the snow is undeniably beautiful.

Sharon said...

Good idea to show those photos.
I am not at all ready for that stuff at all.
I would like to see a few degrees cooler but not that much.
Have a nice day.

Nancy said...

Oh, it's makes me cooler all ready.....It's been so hot here in NC...those pictures are refreshing....Thanks

Jenny the Pirate said...

Ah, such beautiful snow! What a stunning view you have and I'll bet it's pretty even in all this heat. We've gotten a break today, some nice rain, and temps only in the high eighties predicted for Tuesday. I'll take it! Happy Monday and happy week!

Cherdecor said...

Your beautiful snow pictures cooled me right down. Winter is so pretty around your neighborhood.

Musicaljean said...

Oh my!! I'll take summer heat any day over cold and snow. I can't believe summer is more than half over already. Makes me sad.
