Yesterday afternoon when the rain let up, I enjoyed a fine bowl of Peretti No 8 Slice (from my recent bombing) in an estate GBD bent 'doggy with a gold band (courtesy of the Blue Rm boyz).
And when I say enjoyed, I mean exactly that. In fact this is about the first bowl I've had in many weeks that tasted good to me. Since moving to the Phoenix area it's been so hot outside that anything I smoked tasted of nothing. So now that the ambient temps are cooler it seems to help the experience.
No kidding. I experience the same thing on hot summer days. If a “normal” outdoor smoking jaunt takes place when it’s about 70F outside then in your current situation, add 30 degrees to what’s going on in your bowl. It doesn’t help.
Many people go to Burley blends in the Summer. I wonder haw Storm Front would taste down there.
On my back deck amid the gold and orange leaves fluttering to the ground...Sumac, Sweet Gun, Plum and Oak...a beautiful sunny Fall day. Big fleecy clouds drifting through an azure sky. A light breeze. About 65F. Scooping up Holly leaves into our refuse barrel and setting the nicer ceramic pots in an orderly line on the deck bench to await the rains and following Winter, it’s a time for puttering.
