In the grips of an early summer heat wave over here on the coast...
It's time like these I try not to expect too much from my pipes and tobacco. I may even forego the pipe until the heat breaks.
It's too early for these temps!

Try recomputing as "Days of Different Expectations."

Expectations altered in light of altered circumstances.

Cork in water. Water level rises & falls but the cork's position relative to it remains unaltered -- just higher or lower with reference to a fixed point outside it. Very Happy

"Keep the faith."

Cooled off here of late.

Trust Scarlet, "Tomorrow is another day."

Then there is "Good thing come to those who wait."

OK, done sounding like you mom. cheers 

But always be sure you have clean underwear in case of heat stroke.

In other words..."Put a cork in it!"

So far, summer in Maryland has been cool. When temps climb past 90, I also reserve the pipe for early mornings and late evenings. It was nice, cool and foggy here this morning.

The only tobacco that cuts the heat when it gets into triple digits, if you ask me, is Storm Front.   Today I found some of that 2005 Scottish Flake that Shane gave me a while ago, and am finishing it off, and it's literally drying as I smoke it.   Stupid desert.   Laughing  Fortunately I have enough SF to last the summer... I hope...  

...when the invasion of large, black wood ants started happening all over town, I told people, "There's only two reasons why they do that...in the fall when it's going to be a rough winter, and in the spring when it's gonna be a scorcher summer."   No one listened, but they sure are complaining now.   Laughing 

Fools!   Laughing  Mock my animal soothsaying, will you?

Cool

Foolish Kyle.  Those ants all got Platinum cards from Harrah's and are all headed to a comped buffet.  Ya has to keep an eye on them wooly caterpillars for the real skinny.

Please, stop being the straight man.  I am often too weak to normally resist.  Instead I'll let you make up my answer and there are a couple of doozies.  
1. Level
2. Quiet
