Hurricane Irma brought widespread devastation to the Caribbean, Florida, and South Carolina. But here in North Carolina, it brought unseasonably cooler weather. Normally, September is one of the hottest months of the summer. Just three days ago, I was wearing my fleece and slippers, and adding a blanket to the bed! And when I went out to run errands, I really could have used a jacket! Then, after about a week of being able to open up the house and enjoy the cool breeze, summer is back with a vengeance. The a/c is back on as the heat and humidity are once again a daily occurrence. The forecast is for hot and humid for at least the next 10 days.
Thanks, Mother Nature. It was great while it lasted! Come back soon!
Hint: Using the Memories and More card packs is a great way to make a quick card, without a lot of fuss.
