How hot has it been in Washington DC? So hot that yesterday the Navy let officers go around without jackets. Mommy wrote to her parents: “and you know what that concession means to the Navy! It starts in the morning. You wake up feeling as mouldy as a basket of wash that’s been left standing in a damp cellar all week. As the day goes on you feel clammier and clammier until you just don’t care anymore. That is Washington weather.” Tomorrow we are boarding the train and hoping the weather will be much more comfortable in Connecticut.
