Whither the weather

When I left home yesterday, we were experiencing the relatively mild edges of Hurricane Dennis. The temperature on leaving was about 70F (21C) and raining intermittently.
By the time I was just North of Atlanta I was in the midst of bucketloads of rain and then the skies were clear. As I approached closer to Southern Georgia,
I gradually increased the air conditioning and I noticed a temperature sign saying it was 97F (36C). It was in the low 100s by the time I reached the hotel and VERY humid.
Quite a change in such a short distance. Lana and the children were pretty happy that it was me, rather than them. I think they are still enjoying being in one spot.
