Our little Village of Poolesville has been experiencing intolerable 'DC August' weather since the beginning of June. As I have mentioned before, I work in a Garden Center..so I have been getting the full sweltering experience of our extreme weather. That being said...before I gripe too much, I have to stop and think of our soldiers suffering through their deployment in Afghanistan and Iraq wearing full body armor. This image, stops me in my tracks and puts a lid on my complaining real fast!
I've learned from being on my feet for 8 hours in 103 degree heat and crazy humidity there comes a time when water is simply no longer refreshing. Gatorade, specifically 'G2 Grape' stuck in a freezer until it becomes crystalized...brings relief!
So, Talking Tuesday asks....for those of you who have served, what brings relief when serving in the desert or jungle? For those who have not served, please feel free to chime in as well.
