One of my favorite summertime "paradise" experiences is sitting on the back porch of a bbq joint on a hot, humid, summer evening eating Carolina chopped pork with collards and mac&cheese and a tall glass of sweet tea, while listening to live bluegrass music, with distant thunderstorms booming and flashing all around.
I love the tstorms too! Problem here is the heat is UNRELENTING for 4 months or so...I never minded a heat wave up north...because I knew relief was on the way.

It's actually right on time for hot and humid. We just finished with what I could probably call the best spring season I've ever seen in 53 years. Literally, from April 1 to the end of May we had some incredible weather. Granted there were a couple pf chilly days and some stormy weather thrown in for good measure. But the majority of days were clear and warm with highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s. I thought I was living in San Diego for a while there. Now it's time for 3 months of HHH. Hazy, Hot and Humid. And then it's back to beautiful weather for a few months before winter sets in.
