We all love summer & all the outside activities we can do. Just being out in the sun after the winter cold. Some people are having terribly hot weather with no let up & others are having dry weather that is ruining the gardens & farm fields of corn etc. It would be nice if we could make it a perfect day with at least a good rain1 or 2 times a week. But we can't control the weather so we do the best we can living in it. Drink plenty stay in during the worst heat of the day. Water where you can.
