August In Tuscany: Taking Our Breath Away

Posted by: junefinnigan on Friday August 16, 2019 (09:57:46)   (431 Reads)
August in Tuscany can take your breath away. Yes, it's beautiful, but in reality, I am talking about the heat, humidity and lack of breathable air! Even in properties like our own, which is old and built of thick stone walls, you will struggle to stay cool. The problem is the roof, concrete under tiles, which heats up during the day and fails to cool down sufficiently over night as temperatures have not been going lower than around 21 degrees. Last week, temperatures were up to 38 degrees again and wow, by 4pm we are gasping and changing into our third set of clothes. Today, we are thankfully enjoying a drop in overnight temperature and a maximum of 32 degrees, which is much better.    more ...
