Shopping in a Fog
We had a bit of a storm roll through the valley Friday night leaving the temperature a tiny bit cooler on Saturday morning but, there was a catch. The humidity was much higher so it might have been cooler than usual but, it felt about the same. I went to the Farmer's Market in the morning and the market in downtown Phoenix uses misters during the summer months to try to make if feel cooler.
Combine misters with higher humidity and you create a fog so thick it's hard to see. And, it doesn't really make it feel cooler it just feels hot and wet. Fortunately I was only there long enough to pick up some bread and some tomatoes.
I did manage to take a photo of these perfectly red, perfectly shaped tomatoes displayed so neatly in perfect rows. These aren't the tomatoes I bought. My experience has been that the ones that are so perfect to look at usually don't taste all that great. There's a life lesson in there somewhere.
