    to soap up and rinse, but then turn down the water temperature and let cold water run all over me- especially my head. Otherwise, when I get out of the shower, I am sweating again within a couple of minutes.

    We haven't had excessive temperatures this summer. Quite seasonal, highs around 80 - which used to be normal in the summer here on the Cumberland Plateau, but the humidity has been oppressive this year. Some days by 9:30 I have to stop working outside even though the temperature is still in the 70's but the air is so moist that I feel sick. Plants and bugs seem to like it though; it is lush and I have never seen so many insects or been bitten so much.
