H is for Hades and Humid

I've lived in Las Vegas.  It's a dry heat. Well, actually with the weather they're getting right now it is just darned hot.  But they expect that. I mean, DEATH VALLEY is called that for a reason, and it's just next door.

But now I live in Virginia. Northern Virginia.  This morning I rode over to Ashburn (about 10 miles) to meet with a friend. Coming home around noon it was AWFUL.  The humidity was off the charts and the air was just ... mucky.

By the time I limped home, I was drained in every way you can imagine. Even after eating some lunch, cooling down, drinking a ton of water, and getting a shower, I was still pretty useless. I managed to cook some dinner because some people around here insist on eating EVERY DAY. But it was chicken and rice and salad so easy-peasy.

Sheesh, it was miserable today!

Tomorrow I'll start and finish early!

I did see a cool license plate though...

That is a cool plate!

Yes, heat & humidity just sap all of my (somewhat meager anyway) energy. Good for you for slogging through!

It gets beastly humid here too later in the summer. Totally sucks your energy right out of you. Better to skip the ride and laze around the pool ;). (Oops, did I say that out loud?)

Hope you're having a great summer aside from the humidity.
