Summer - 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Week #28

Week #28 – Summer. What was summer like where and when you grew up? Describe not only the climate, but how the season influenced your activities, food choices, etc.

Two words - hot and humid! Growing up in Florida, the daytime temps were usually in the 90's in the summer with the only relief provided by the almost daily thunderstorms. Lows were in the 70's, but didn't feel very cool thanks to the nearly 100% humidity. We went to the beach or swimming pools fairly often and played outside quite a bit. I remember my father grilling burgers, chicken, and seafood and ice cream and snow cones were popular treats.
