I’m told the humidex was at 41 today that 106 f if you’re in the US… Just saying
With the sweltering heat we’ve been experiencing this week, as we await the arrival of Hurricane Earl, these photos of Lake Torment are a welcomed sight.
I love the name, Torment, which was part of the reason why I chose to have one of the scenes in my novel set here. I have no idea where the name originated from. If anyone reading this knows please, please tell. And if you don’t know you can make something up. It might make for interesting reading on the sweltering hot day.
I have to say I love the clouds in these photos .
There are some pretty interesting name places around here. This summer I’ve been driving past Kill Dog Cove Road every day. Each time I see the sign I have to wonder where the name came from. If a name like Kill Dog Cove Road doesn’t inspire this writer’s mind then there’s little hope. I’m also partial to the Goose Chase Road in New Germany, not far from where I live. Pretty inspiring names if you ask me. Who knows one or both may make it into a story somewhere down the road.
Do you have any interesting place names to share? Or maybe you’ve figured out where Lake Torment got its name. In either case perhaps I’ll stop admiring those photos of the lake and go for a swim while I’m feeling the heat..
