June is the beginning of Georgia's long summers of smog alerts and humidity. Sometimes this starts in May and stretches all the way through October. This year, we have had more moderate temperatures (less than 90 F) and lots and lots and lots and lots of rain and thunderstorms. For the past several years, Georgia has been in a miserable drought. This year is making up for all that.
So what color is humidity? I couldn't come up with anything so send me your suggestions and I can use it next month or in August.
I did come up with this color combination for the small 6" block to represent the nearly daily thunderstorms we have had this year. Stormy grays and black to represent the dark clouds rolling in.
For the 12" block, I used this weird mustardy brown color to represent the smoggy summers in Atlanta. And the pattered fabric in the pinwheels looks like suns. This year, the rain has helped keep the air quality better than in other years.
I still need to catch up on the Blogger Girls BOM. In between the rainy days I have been busy busy busy with outside projects, while the temperatures are moderate--priming and painting my porch, reglazing windows, washing windows, refinishing an Adirondack chair, and all sorts of un-blogworthy chores.
As Google Reader keeps reminding me, Google Reader is going away at the end of this month (sob!). After much research, I moved all the blogs I follow over to Feedly (I decided that bloglovin was not for me). I found Feedly easy and useful and it works well on the laptop and on iVan the iPhone.
