We have 76F/24C right now; it's headed for 90 today.
Gosh GG, I will trade places with you. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't go above 100F. today up here in Boston. And this heat is expected to continue through Friday.

It is Friday, isn't it? Heat must be getting to you If we had temps over 100, I'd stay inside, too! Take care and stay hydrated!

It is Friday, but that is not the Friday they are talking about. I wish it was. Try July 12th. It is already 83 degrees. The only going out I am going to be doing is out my door and to the lobby to check my mail.

I hate this heat Addie! I have a friend, native of the Cape, who loves this weather! Even here in central MA. But thunderstorms scare the daylights out of her. I told her I'd very happily trader all my degrees over 79 for all her thunderstorms. Now we just have to figure out how to do it! I have to grocery shop. I think I'll hide in the basement, where the AC makes it even cooler, when I get home.

Six years ago I would have been sitting at the beach under a tree doing my needlework. Even in this heat. But the beach is just as hot and the water temp is in the high 60's today. I still would rather summer than winter any day though.

Having a real frog strangler with thunder, lightning and bright sunshine!

When it rains heavy like this I think of Selkie and Uncle Bob, they taught me about frog stranglers!

It was overcast today, with a little breeze, so it was very comfortable with the windows open.

It was a lot nicer than a couple of days ago when I had to run the a/c almost all day.

Frog strangler. Rain so hard it could drown a frog. Or someone the frog never met, if it's a frog stranger.
