Dipping In Your Toes

By
Home Inspector with JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC HOI 394

Summer has settled into Connecticut over the past week. The continuous hot and humid weather make for a lazy daze. Finding a nice shaded spot next to a cool running brook is about all the exercise expended in the heat of the day. Pull up a log, dip in your toes while watching the trout and frogs frolic listening to the stream sing its babbling song.

Wooded brook in Connecticut

My grandson would have to turn over every rock looking for the frogs and lizzards.  Beautiful scene.

Jim these are the types ofdays when you look for that cool spot in the shade and maybe have a deep enough stream or small river where a jump in adds some cooling as well. When I get hot later today, I'll need to open up the photo for a break.

I need that creek in my back yard! Yes James, it is really hot and humid down here too, we are all trying to be creative in finding ways to beat the heat. It is hard to go to an inspection mid to late morning, or early to late afternoon, or anytime these days. Take your cooler with plenty of ice, washcloth in the bottom, and a change of shirts for afterwards.

Gwen, There were so many frogs, he wouldn't had turn over any rocks :)

Ed, A cool stream sure does look inviting on a hot day.

Jay, I don't know about down your way, but this past week or so has finally felt like summer after a less than summer like June.

Fred, Sounds like a good plan.

Charlie, If you look hard one has a little smirk.

Peter, As do I , but it's not as cool.

Don, Yes. I took this on Sunday hiking with my girls.

Jason, Thanks, deep yes, but I don't know if it's poetry :)

Karen, Thanks, you too.
