    It's been hovering around 100 degrees here the past few days and that's 105-110 using the heat index with humidity! Tomorrow is supposed to be the worst day yet.

    I've got a tiny room, shades down (as they always are since I'm like dracula). I've got my window unit set to 64 degrees and I'm literally still sweating. It must be mid 80's in here still. It's supposed to be 84 for both Friday and Saturday, and that should be a relief!

    I hear it's worse by you! I checked about an hour and a half ago and it was still 91 here. I was on the phone with Janeen so I checked Edison and it was still 97 there!

    Welcome to my world. New England for the winter; New Orleans for the summer. Life sucks.

    That is awful! Couldn't plan it worse.

    This afternoon I was driving to shopping and caught Rush. He did make me laugh, said CNN had reporters on the street in Chicago, headlining, "5th strait day of 90 plus temps!" Rush commented something like, 'Imagine, Chicago in July/Aug with 90+ temps! Just think of the reports in Jan. Chicago: 10+ inches of snow and below zero temps!' :laugh:

    I just put on a long sleeve flannel shirt, to take the chill off while I'm in my basement.
