It's Hot by Leann Harris


Today was day 33 of the temperature being over 100. It was officially 108, shattering our old record. Our record of over 100 degrees days in a row is 40 and that was in 1980. I remember it actually got over a 110 that year, and you could tell the difference between 100 and 99.

Now in 1980 I had small children and was a lot younger. The heat was bad, but you went on with life. This time I'm not holding up as well as I did the last time. The only thing that brings a smile to my face is that on Sunday, I'm flying to Denver to spend a week in the mountains. I'm doing a happy dance.

I'd love to go back to Denver at the end of Sept and see the fall color, but I'll settle for a summer break.

Ugh..The heat is bad all over the US right now. It's brutal. I'm hoping that you have A/C.

You can't live in Texas with a/c. We've got it, but yesterday about 4:30, I was standing in the kitchen when the a/c kicked on and I felt nothing but hot air. I panicked and called my husband. As we were talking the air got cool. What a relief.

In AZ, we get 108 when there's not a heat wave. We get 122 when there is.

Pam, that's why I don't live in AZ.

And my husband is a native Texan.
