Heat wave

hoT with a capital T

106 degrees in the shade. (It was a more dramatic 123° in direct sun, but the heat made the LCD nearly impossible to read.)


As the kids might say, OMFG it’s hot. Thank the good Lord for tubeless internet so I can post this from outdoors, where the heat is slightly less oppressive than in the oven that my house has become.

I slept in as long as I could this morning, but nature dictated that I rise no later than 1 p.m., at which point I promptly began sweating. Dripping sweat. Rivers of it.

Setting sail on a pool of my own perspiration toward the thermostat to check the indoor temp — lately around 95 or 96 degrees — I found the two-digit display unable to cope with the current temperature. The LCD showed “OL,” which I took to mean “Oh, Lordy, it’s hot.”
