From the streets of New York City to the barns of Birmingham, Ala., it’s dripping hot out there.
It’s been a great summer for refrigerator sales, as folks pack those ice boxes with beer, water and goodies for grilling. If you’re not used to this kind of heat, though, it can be unbearable.
Heat advisories took effect for places like Maryland and North Carolina, where with the heat index, the mercury climbed well past 105 degrees. Come winter, we’ll all will be longing for these sundrenched days, but how do we deal with the persistent humidity and the stifling temps?
Besides its manageable 60 and 70 degree temps, there’s so much more attracting vacationers to this region.
Whitewater ocean views from homes like the one above ($1,675 a week before Sept. 15). Spotting gray whales and ocean birds. Bumper boating on Devils Lake. Observing glassblowers mastering their craft. Antiquing and outlet shopping.
For the gamblers, there’s craps, keno, blackjack, poker and slots at Chinook Winds Casino.
And all in the comfort of air-conditioned space far from the East Coast heat wave. Escape quick before you melt.
