ABOUT THIS SERIES
• Each week this summer, we are writing about why we love this sweltering, humid part of the season.
• Last week, we kicked the series off with Barbara Marshall’s ode to summer storms. A reader wrote: “I enjoyed this article and ‘felt’ each descriptive image, sound, and smell. Ms. Marshall didn’t ‘tell,’ she ‘showed’ the majestic quirkiness of our Florida natural fireworks.”
• Next Saturday: Leslie Gray Streeter on out-of-town friends and relatives turning her house into a summer camp.
