Saturday Photo: Hot Day, Light on Leaves

If you ever wondered about the value of street trees, here's an object lesson. The trees across the street from our temporary digs shade the buildings there, which means they don't receive nearly the same energy from the sun. The leaves are nearly blinding as they reflect back the light and heat.

Our side gets sun from before 7 a.m. until well after noon, and is extremely hot these days.

So glad we have AC at the house, where we are busily getting ready to move back in--and which is shaded by two big old maples.
