Seek a Shady Spot

 
I've lived in Kansas and Missouri, so I know what heat and humidity feel like.

I was in Phoenix, Arizona when the temperature hit 122F/50C.   That's just too blasted hot, even if it is a dry heat.

It's been warm in Colorado; in the 90s with a bit of humidity.  At this altitude the sun is strong and can cause a sunburn in a matter of minutes.

Sometimes we have to seek a shady spot wherever we can find it.

  1. Whew! I'd rather be under that slide than on it. I can see a really good butt/leg burn going down that in shorts. Great picture!

  2. Ha ha Grey Horse. You are right. I can almost feel my flesh sticking to that hot metal, just thinking about that. Although, I'd probably get wedged in and stuck there.

  4. My husband was just telling me that they were removing playground equipment in New York, because kids might get hurt on it. Geez. At least they could leave it around for shade for the donkeys.

  6. Dreaming, I'm very sorry your tooth is still hurting. Careful, I'm not sure how well Bute and wine mix. :-)

    NuzMuz, I'm surprised any of us survived childhood now that playground equipment is considered a hazard. When I was a kid I used to jump off the roof of the house for fun. I didn't have a slide.

    Barbara, Terry, they are smart little critters, aren't they? Wish I could have a couple of them at home.

  9. lol! Great photo. I never liked those slides when it was hot. I'd stick to it and then the metal would burn the back of my legs. They never were very fast either.
    They make a better slim shady than they do a playground toy. lol!

  11. Smart little ones! :-) I had 6 summers in NC; don't miss the humidity at ALL! We had 90's and a bit muggy, too, during that heat spell. I was just at the barn in a jacket (60 degrees). Don't you love the mountains! <3

  12. While I moan alot about the Scottish summers, I don't think I could cope with those temperatures.
