It's HOT. In fact someone just told me it's hotter here in the northeast than it is in Florida. Please ... who turned the world upside down.
Friends have allowed us to use their swimming pool until their tenants arrive August 1st and we had to take advantage of that this morning ... it sure beat a cup of coffee and it was still cool from the evening air.
Those friends were arriving on the midday train and on a normal day could certainly walk to their house about a quarter of a mile away, but I decided that just wasn't fair today. As I waited for them, my car's thermometer read 99℉. The train was a little late and I entertained myself watching people "claim the shade".
Cheers everyone, please stay cool.
