It’s HOT Downstate!

Have you ever wondered where ‘downstate’ begins?   The answers vary from ‘other side of the pass’ to ‘east of Cumberland.’ I suspect the true answer is closer to the intersection of I68 and 219. Garrett County folk have a deep understanding that they share a large slice of Maryland heaven.

It doesn’t take many days in the mountains to realize that time spent ‘downstate’ is just a necessary distraction from cool, fresh air, long hikes, and evening boat rides. This time of the year, downstate is down right sweltering and the hot air is due to more than simply an over abundance of politicians.

Even as I write this blog, the Air quality warning is alternating with the local pollen alert on my weather app and while the temperature is merely 91 degrees, the weather.com guru has posted that it feels like a stifling 106 degrees. (How do they even know that?)
