As much as I hate cold temperatures you will never hear me complain about the heat.  It has been predicted that here in the deep south that we would encounter a milder summer than in years past.  Today’s high was 94 degrees with a heat index of 104 degrees and summer hasn’t officially arrived yet.  I think the forecasters may be wrong.

The humidity here is unbearable at times.  For those with breathing problems find it hard to breath and those with out breathing problems are not far behind them.  You walk outside and it literally takes your breath away the air feels so thick.  Your everyday tasks become labored and you break out in a sweat.  Just by walking across the parking lot you would be in need of a change of clothes.

Yesterday evening I had the opportunity to work with this beautiful mother of two at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens and it was not enjoyable at all.  We got several good images but we both had to work for it.  I had to stop several times and wipe the sweat off my brow to keep my camera dry.  My glassed started steaming up which made it difficult to know when the images was in focus in the view screen.
