    The past four days here in Massachusetts has been brutal! I'm sure today is no different, but I currently sit in an air-conditioned office.

    Yesterday my theremometer at home read 102. Given the location of the sensor outside, I'd say that temp was a few degrees higher than the actual temp.

    Weather.com is telling me the current temp is 98.

    Damn.

    It is def HOT! Should be about 94 today and hotter tomorrow.

    I took my family to an ice cream place for lunch and their ice cream was melting so fast! :)

    I'm back at work and have air plus my fan on me.. God help those without air this week. God speed.

    Where Bootneck is it's 120 degrees some days, and he has to wear 120 pound worth of stuff on his kit. So I won't complain as I sit in my condo with A/C, or even in my car waiting for the A/C to kick in. We are spoiled here in America with our A/C. Trust me,,I don't have it at school and it sucks in August, but that's nothing compared to what our soldiers have to go through over in Iraq and Afghanistan in the summer~!

    I live in Oklahoma. We laugh when everyone whines about how hot it gets in their neck of the woods.

    We're not that used to it and it gets humid here. Last week was quite comfortable with lows in the 50s at night. It was a shock this morning to walk out into this.

    Oh I'm not whining ... trust me. I very much enjoy the heat. Humidity I could live without, but the heat I'll take!

    When it gets hot like that I start rubbing the cats with a wet towel, soak their heads to keep them cool. :)
