In Georgia we get a little taste of Hell with the summer heat, Surely without our AC we would be dead meat. It feels like a roaring campfire when you go outside, You are covered in sweat, and want to run back inside. It makes you wonder how hot Hell would be, Although it feels like Hell now at 105 degrees! We had better live as good as we can be... The devil won’t be serving any southern iced tea!

Thanks Kim. Yes Florida is about as bad unless you live near the beach with the breeze. I lived in Vero Beach for several years when I first married.

Thanks John. I wasn't sure what to call it, but I knew I had to work in no ice tea in Hell. Haha!
