Gosh here in Florida its been miserable. Its hot, humid the mosquitoes are swarming us and the extreame rain has made some really thick mud. Its miserable and I have been riding for atleast three hours every day, plus saddling and unsaddling a ton of horses :/
Ugh, I want it to be winter again. But life goes on I guess.

I've loving coastal Connecticut these days. Even when they are absolutely baking just a few miles inland, my area never gets above 85 degrees and the nearby Long Island Sound keeps the humidity down. Every time I think about moving inland to get some land where I could have my horse home with me, this is the type of weather that makes me rethink that. I lived in Atlanta for a few years and don't get how anyone can survive in that thick lung crushing humidity.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Ive been trying to ride more this summer, and if its not raining/thunderstorming its in the high 80's-90's with like 80-90% humidity...its so miserable. I think I just wouldn't be able to go outside if it got in the 100's!

It's been quite uncomfortable in my area of AZ also. So dry, my skin is so itchy all over, & the bugs are just everywhere as soon as the sun goes down. This morning is overcast, so some reprieve from the broiling sun. At least the fire that was raging near us, has calmed down quite a lot.
