Summers in the mid-Atlantic region can be brutally hot and humid. It’s hard to remember what we did before air conditioning. But sometimes in the evening, or when there is a bit of a breeze, or even at the beginning of a thunderstorm, there is nothing better than relaxing on the porch. A ceiling fan on a porch is one of the best things ever, but once that is in place, there are a lot of decisions to be made. Comfy chairs, a hammock, a swing, somewhere to have a meal. Whatever your choice, nothing says summer like sitting on porch, watching the fireflies, hearing kids playing in the neighborhood, and having something cold to drink.
