Out with a Bang?

Yesterday was supposed to be the end of the miserable heatwave we’ve been enduring here in Da Lou. It was “only” supposed to be 105°F, but officially it was above that. Unofficially… Well, you see the picture. That’s what the thermometer on the deck said. Yeah… 122°.

After big storms last night, the evening was comfy, but today — which was NOT supposed to be part of the heatwave — is hot again, with temps real, real close to 100°, and maybe above. If so, then today is the 11th day in a row of 100+. I can safely say that I’ve never experienced a heatwave like this, even when I lived in Omaha.

Again, it looks like storms are brewing to the south this afternoon, and the promise of relief is within reach. I hope so. My gentle body chemistry ain’t exactly built to these kinds of specs!
