On the penultimate (I hope) triple digit day of the year...

...I have to say that if there's an up-side to living in a ridiculously hot place, it's that I can put an entire basket of clothes on the line to dry at 6PM, and they'll be dry and toasty before the sun goes down. I love the smell of line-dried textiles, and I also love saving electricity. It gets me out of the house some days when I'd rather not, perhaps, and that's good, too. 

It was 102F today, and tomorrow is forecast for 100, but Wednesday is forecast for a positively frigid 90F. 

Fetch me my parka, Jeeves!

As summers go, this one hasn't been brutal, but I will not be sorry to see the back of it.

I grew up in Illinois, and I remember those summers; days my Mom used to call "Beastly".

Last week our hot spell broke, and it was very pleasant for a few days. That stopped yesterday, when by 9am is was 94* and climbing.

Going to be in the high 90's all week here!

We missed our annual summer trip to America this year and as a result lots of grey miserable rainy days...wanna swop?
