The Memorial Day weekend on Lake Allatoona will be a hot one. “Like seven inches from the midday sun,” to quote Santana’s song, Smooth.
You’ll be wanting to escape the …
Hot town, summer in the city
Back of my neck getting dirty and gritty
Been down, isn’t it a pity
Doesn’t seem to be a shadow in the cityAll around, people looking half dead
Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head
as The Lovin’ Spoonful sang in Summer in the City.
Hard to believe highs will be in the 90s through the Memorial Day Weekend on Lake Allatoona.
If you’re brave, check out the extended weather forecast (as of May 20, 2019). Yes, it will change. Yes, it will still be hot.
Even our pals with the US Army Corps of Engineers at Lake Allatoona are sharing their concerns about sunburns, dehydration and doing stupid stuff after drinking in the sun all day.
Oh, just because a bite of that potato salad that’s been simmering all day looks good … it doesn’t mean it won’t bite back later.
Get outside and enjoy the Great Outdoors on the Great Lake Allatoona. Enjoy your tunes, your peeps, your party and your times but don’t get burned. Be smart. Stay cool … even in the sun.
This is only the beginning of summer. You’ve got to pace yourself.
