Dog Days of Summer

Well, once again I am complaining of the heat. I guess getting older does that. I am really disliking it alot. I told someone on chat the other night, the reason we moved from New England was to escape the cold and snow of winter. Well hello, what did we trade that for.... Trying to decide which is worse. I guess I would have to say the snow is worse if you have to drive in it, and I did every day so maybe the trade off was okay. Actually when we left, it was for Florida. We were there 3 and 1/2 yrs before we moved to Texas. Florida is hot but we pretty much always had a breeze even if it was a warm one. I long for the days of heading to the cooler climates in the summer.
I am getting excited about our workcamp stint coming up this October. We will be going back to Topsail Hill in Santa Rosa Beach in Florida. It is in the Destin area. The fall will be a nice time to be there. Last year we spent July & August there and it was just to hot to enjoy sitting outside. I will post some pictures of it one of these days. Nice place... They don't have wifi, that is the only downside. I am trying to decide what to do about it. Now that I am on chat every night and following blogs, I can't live without my computer. So, I am now looking for alternatives. I hate to pay for an air card since we don't travel all the time. I am trying to find out about the vacation mode that verizon and sprint seem to offer. Not sure if they put a time limit on it. Or, is upgrading my phone to broadband access the way to go? Not sure, but plan on finding out soon.
Stay cool everyone.

I'm with you on the weather! I don't think I could spend summers in a really hot climate. Alaska sounds so good for the summer months!
