Tropical Heat Wave

One hot summer day, an acquaintance asked "can you believe this weather"? "Yes", I replied, "It is summer in the Midwest, it is usually hot."

Well, can you believe this weather??? This is beyond summer hot, it is roasting. I think it was close to 100 again today and the same for tomorrow and the remainder of the week. Rain has been scarce, trees are starting to look stressed, as are the people. I have felt lethargic all week and I pin it on the heat.

I went out this PM and promptly got too warm. I spent most of the afternoon dozing. I love the warm and understand that is it hot in the Midwest in the summer, but really now, can we have a break??

I'm with you. I spent a short time outside both days this weekend and returned soaking wet. It's pretty sad that July and August are now becoming 100-degree months, not just months with a couple of 100-degree days.
