Hot, hot, hot...



The WeatherBug(c) indicates that it is hot and it is gonna get hotter... I have NEVER seen a cactus in the forecast, ever! Daily thunderstorms? For sure. But hot with no hope for rain? Never. Our best chance for rain is Friday - and it is only a 30% chance. I think it'll dry up before it ever hits the ground.

So, unlike the 116 degree dry heat of the actual desert - we'll have 98 degree temperatures with a heat index of 116 - which means muggy, humid, yucky, unhealty, horrible air. I have a feeling I'll have sticker shock with my next electric bill.

The high predicted for today is 92 degrees. It is already 93 degrees at 11:30 AM - not even the 'hottest' part of the day. So, it can only get worse.

The boys were in the pool most of the day yesterday - the water temp was 90 degrees!!!!!!!! ACK!

This kind of weather is sluggish. It is too hot to do anything but sit and wilt. I have knitted a bit, in the comfort of my air conditioned home. Today, I am working from home (hence the easy Blog Break!), but I'll have to venture out the rest of the week and I am NOT looking forward to it.

If you see a puddle of humanity on the sidewalk near one of the L'Enfant Plaze metro stops, that'll be me, having melted while waiting for the bus!

Ugh...it sounds very bad over there. We have very dry heat, so dry that makes you cough. But, we have received some relief the past two days--scattered rains and right now, it is nice and cool, but I can sense the heat starting up.
