A few weeks ago we went down to Augusta to visit friends. I’d been before, but like most places, there’s always new things to do and areas to explore.
What I didn’t realize is that Augusta is so much hotter than Atlanta. I thought we’d have similar weather, since it’s only a few hours away, but it’s a few degrees hotter, and that makes a big difference.
