      Thanks Pat. Years ago I lived in Texas and in August when the temps were in triple digits you would have to run from your car into a store because your skin would burn on that short walk 😳😅

        Wow! I spent a year in Miami. The heat got to me. I spent half the time dreaming about the changes in seasons in New York. Couldn’t wait to get outta there 😊

        Yes it’s a toss up between hot and cold. I settled in Florida where I always refused to live 🙄
