Night Painting in Springfield Vermont - Heat Wave Creates New Behaviors

Well, no one needs to point out that recent heat wave and it's miasmatic atmosphere, thick and oppressive as it was, interrupted the normal routines quite effectively here in Springfield, Vermont. Many lawns and shrubs suffered as underground springs withered away, and daytime patterns of activity were altered when possible.

One neighbor had the brilliant idea of illuminating the outside painting project in order to pursue completion of the task during a less roast-y time of day. It turns out that the actual air temperature did not decrease very much at all from that daytime high, but it was good to get to paint without the merciless glare of the Sun.
