I cant stand the humidity, when it is 95 with 75% humidity and you go outside, you fell sticky and wet all the time, not to mention i get devouered by mosquitos, so you have to spray bug spray on you which then adds to the yuk feeling. I was in AZ during October and November and just loved the fact i could go swimming and hiking, we went back in Feb to visit freinds and wow we could still go outside with now winter coat and go hiking and no freeze, I love snow hate ice, but wont miss it. It was 109 in Oregon yesterday where my family is with humidity and they were dying. me I HATE MOSQUITOS and gnats!! that hover around your face the entire time you are outside.

We had friends over Saturday and we went out to lunch and stayed in the pool till like 10 pm. We didn't want to get out.

When are you planning to go to NC?
Mmmm! Eggplant! Love it roasted or in Baba Ganoush (sp?).

You're a brave woman for cooking in that heat! I would've been grouchy too!

I was planning for August, but my supervisor had shot that plan down when my work load was increased. So I was told to push my vacation time to September/October. I'm looking at this positively as it will give me a chance to see how NC looks in the Fall (I love when the trees change colors).

That's right I'm tired of burning my hands on everything I touch.

Oh you brat! I never thought of that. I loves the colors of the leaves. I love leaves, pictures of leaves, leaf patterns etc.

Bet my Lake Norman looks nice with colored leaves.

October is best for fall color; a little bit earlier at the higher elevations. Just be prepared for the mountain roads to be a parking lot on the weekends. We made that mistake once since we moved here . Luckily we were heading out of the mountains as people were heading up so we didn't get hung up in the narrow lane stoppages

Keep an eye on weather.com. They track peak foliage. So do most of the tourist sites.

My sister manages an apartment complex in the San Fernando Valley North of LA. She said it hit like 114 and their transformer blew and a utility worker got electrocuted trying to fix it. The city set up a huge generator to run their power for 2 weeks.
I will take my chances getting hit by a bus here in the City.

Foliage watch, oh yeah! One of the best things about Fall!

Thanks for the tips on the mountain roads and weather.com!

I'm so used to driving on flatlands that I don't know how I'd handle the mountains. Hope I don't get cursed out too much.
