No other words describe our weather. Yesterday we had a heat index of 110 degrees. At 5 am today it was 80 degrees. The central air in my building is struggling, with my apartment a few degrees warmer than the thermostat setting.
I am ready. My fridge is stocked with bottled water and quart jars of iced tea. Fans are set up in front of floor vents to help move the cool air. My activities for today include reading and a little bit of computer time. Number One Son stocked my freezer with popsicles. As soon as I post this I will be putting into play a trick Duane learned while he worked as a restaurant cook. I will get dishtowels wet, ring out the excess water and put them in the freezer. One of the frozen towels applied to the back of the neck does wonders for cooling a person down.
I really feel sorry for those who need to be outside today. Storms are predicted for this evening. I hope they cool things down a bit. Stay cool and safe.
