This state has had a very hot summer. But by the time I was there the temperature wasn’t much over 30 degrees. It was a shock on my return to find it was under 15 degrees back in England. The heat wasn’t really a problem as one goes from air conditioned house to air conditioned car and then air conditioned buildings.
Because my friend had had a serious car accident at Easter she wasn’t driving. This meant we had walk about five minutes to the shops. We always went early in the morning before the heat of the day. Walking is an unusual thing there as people just do not walk!
Unlike this country the weather is not the main topic of conversation. What do you say when it is nearly always sunny and hot.
I soon got used to being called ma’am but what I really didn’t like was being addressed as Miss Carol.
