Heat makes less fun

When the trip started, I worried for the first 2 weeks about cold, rain and wind. It was so cold on one particular morning that I couldn’t feel my fingers. Just 5 days ago, I left Alma, Colorado with temps in the 40′s. Very quickly, it has become a blast furnace. This same western Kansas area gets zero weather in the winter, and over 100 regularly for the late May through September time period. Seeing and taking to the people show me how hardy they are. The biting fly thing is evidently limited to a certain area. Once again, I find more and more reasons to be happy that I live where I do.
