Hot, hotter, ...did someone say hot?

It's never a good thing when weather in your area makes the news. Usually in the Chicago area, this happens in the winter after a blizzard, or in the spring after violent storms. But we're making news this summer with the heat wave. If the temperature reaches triple digits (fahrenheit) today, which there's no question by any of the meteorologists that this will happen, this will be the first time that we've had three days over 100 degrees. Add stifling humidity. Stepping outside from an air conditioned building is like hitting a brick wall. I'm a healthy person, thank goodness, but I have a hard time breathing in that. I'm sorry for the people who have asthma or other respiratory ailments. Dressing for fashion on days like today is just plain stupid. A light t-shirt and shorts with a hat and sunglasses is plenty stylish, thank you! And makeup? Why bother? It will melt within a minute.

The dogs don't even want to do anything. Take a cue from them! Stay cool, keep your dogs in the A/C with you, and drink plenty of water! - Fran
