What a difference a day can make! It's been so hot and muggy, until yesterday. We only had a high of 63 degrees and, as my son would say, "the Smoky Mountains are smokey"! We even had to turn our fans off. I just hope this mild weather lasts awhile but it'll probably get hot again. Then again, in years past we have fired up our woodstove in September.
