We are setting records in the southeastern US these days. A hot and humid summer so far. When it gets so hot I am reminded of something a high school chemistry teacher told the class. When it is too hot outside, think snow! And if it’s too cold, think about 100 degrees. Funny how our brains can be re-trained. Maybe not that easy but with a little work we can convince ourselves that maybe it’s not THAT hot outside. Actually I am staying indoors with the air conditioning on. That is how I will re-train my brain! Either way, enjoy my cold winter photo of the iced willow tree.
