Here’s a little weekend waterview from Lake Norman.
It’s the Dog Days of Summer and we’re need of a cool down!
The dog days of summer are the hot, sultry days of summer.
Historically they are the period following the heliacal rising of the star system Sirius,
which Greek and Roman astrology connected with heat, drought, sudden thunderstorms,
lethargy, fever, mad dogs, and bad luck.
These days they are considered the hottest, most uncomfortable part of summer
in the Northern Hemisphere.
It’s been a hot, steamy and stormy week.
We’re dog gone excited about going for a boat ride to cool off. . .
And then immediately run out of steam.
There has been lots of boat activity and rafting in our backyard this week . . .
Typically after Labor Day boating activity comes to halt.
This year with most continuing to work from home and remote learning,
I’m guessing the lake won’t quiet down until the end of October.
We enjoyed an evening boat ride last night, I’ll leave you with a few photos.
Hope you’re finding a way to stay cool ♥
Update: We were boating this morning at 8:07 am so we didn’t feel the effects
of the 5.1 magnitude earthquake in North Carolina, the largest since 1916.
