Don't let them convince you it's just the humidity...it's just hot in the summer time in the South. We aren't complaining, we love that we have all four seasons in North Carolina....it's just perfect in the fall, we don't know what to do with an inch of snow, and we love spring flowers....but what to do when it's just hot!
