Now is not a good time to talk about the warmth that we were begging for last winter. The weatherman reported that the high temperature in Morehead City was 99F on Monday, May 31.
We recorded 97 degrees on our front porch while it was still in the shade. Fortunately we are still dropping below 80F at night, or we would be cooking.
About the only thing that might like this heat is my tomatoes which are thinking about ripening.
I love warm weather, but I am not a fan of heat when it gets over ninety. It is hard to walk across the sand to the beaches without insulated Crocs when the temperature is above 90F.
This is a good time of year to go fishing early in the morning or to walk the beaches late in the evening. Or to stay inside and catch up on your paper work. It is too hot to fish in mid-day.
