It's only 10 AM and it's 94. With the heat index, it's already 98 degrees! We're under a heat advisory here, too, for today and tomorrow. After that, though it looks like we're getting some cooler temps. I'd give anything to be able to turn off the AC and open up the windows!

It is 93 here right now (heat index 101 degrees), and it is supposed to get up to 98. The humidity is what makes it especially bad.

We've hit 100 three days in a row. There's supposed to be a cool front coming in tonight.
One thing about it, the humidity has been low...it was only 54% last evening. But you walk out the door, and it's like walking into an oven.
Wonder if I could really fry an egg on the sidewalK? Has anyone ever really done that?

One of our local news stations tried it one time. They got a big mess, but it didn't really cook. LOL I think it could actually be done if you did it right. I know read that you can bake bread using the sun, if you made a little "oven" using a domed metal cover.

Sunny!!! It'll be 83 here this afternoon. For Seattle that's pretty warm.
I sure wouldn't like it any hotter. You guys should all come stay with us for a few weeks!!

It has been in the lower hundreds for the past couple of weeks, with the heat index at around 112. We haven't had rain for almost a month, and there are cracks in the ground 3" wide. The grass crunches under your feet, and the roots of plants have totally withered away. We are in serious drought, and everyone is suffering. I don't ever remember the summer being this bad.

Everyone, when I pray, I pray for the coming of good weather for all of us, so please, do the same. I don't know how much longer we can take it.

Journal entry 07.26.2005

Ahhhh.... at last it is dark!

The sun is horrendously brutal on this planet, and each day we pray for the relief that we know only sunset will bring. Even, then, the relief is maddenly temporary. Four from our party have already succumbed to this maddening inferno and I fear that, alas, my lovely wife Eleanor may be the next to pass. She weakens by the hour.

Please - - If, by some miracle, should another soul receive this message, you must send help! There isn't much time.

Must.... sleep.... now....

Until tomorrow - - by God's grace.

Z.

Hang on, Z...I have sent a mule train with skins of water and a medicine man to break the heat.
