As usual, the temperatures in Tampa Bay were 100 degrees yesterday.
I can say with certainty that it will be 100° again tomorrow. My friends and I are doing everything possible to stay cool. The air conditioner can only do so much to help the climate. Summer temperatures in Tampa Bay are always hot and humid. There were a couple of times last year when I had to shut off the air conditioner or it was going to overheat and freeze up. The area temperatures continue to rise, but no one believes that global warming is real. Yesterday I suggested going to the springs for the day and nobody wanted to leave Tampa. The guys wanted to sit at home in front of the AC playing video games and I wanted to get out of the house. It takes about an hour to get to the springs, but the water is cold and refreshing. It feels much better than the bay or the ocean. Even though the water in the Gulf is about 80 degrees. On a hot and humid day, warm water isn’t very refreshing. Even though nobody wanted to go with me, I decided to go on my own. I had a lot of fun and I was cool and comfortable all night after spending some time in the 70° spring water. I tried to get my friends to go too, but those big babies missed out on a great day and a fun and relaxing experience. I wish I was off tomorrow so I could go again.
