Same here along the mighty Mississippi, pool still feels like bathwater.

Still living in a blast furnace. It's 90F right now and rising. The weather service has had a heat advisory issued since the middle of last week and has extended it through this week. Hotter than the hinges of hell, with humidity to match. I your hair frizzes in high humidity, stay away from here, you'll never get a brush through it. No relief is predicted until way near the end of the week, if then. At least it doesn't take long for laundry to dry on the line.

I'm usually pretty easy going and can take the heat in stride, but it has been really hot for quite a stretch here. Last week I think we hit triple digits every day! I really miss baking, but just don't want to heat up the kitchen.
