Went from a cold, foul spring day to a hot summer day in 24 hours. Had the heat on yesterday morning, AC this afternoon (96F!). Gotta love New England.

Sweet Italian sausages on the grill, lemon basmati in the Zoji, nuked broc.

I can't tell you just how much warped pleasure I am getting out of your heat wave up there. Yes, it's wrong, but I can't help it. You guys up there laugh at us when it snows down here, and Texans try to drive in it. Well, this is our chance at payback.

My living room has a 24-foot ceiling. When it is 30 degrees outside, my living room is 55 degrees... except up at the ceiling where it is 85 degrees. It is a big, square hot-air balloon. When it is 105 outside, my high ceilings are wonderful -- all the hot air is above me.

We don't do cold well, and you don't do hot well.

Stay hydrated. That's all the advice I can give you.

Easier to drive, harder to work outside. If only we could all have 70-degrees 24/7/365.

We had nearly the identical dinner here tonight Andy! I do love that TJ's orange chicken!! Do you use extra orange juice when heating the sauce like I do?
