So far, this summer has been relatively mild.
We’ve had a few bouts of some higher temperatures, but all in all, not too bad.
But later this week, the heat is really going to crank up.
Parts of the area will soar to over 100 degrees, and the heat index in most areas will be over the century mark, even if the mercury doesn’t hit 100.
It’s this kind of heat I really don’t like.
You sweat what seems like gallons of liquid and your clothes stick to you.
Your sunglasses (or glasses) fog up as soon as you walk out of the AC and into the sauna.
Even a breeze feels more like a hair dryer than anything even remotely refreshing.
And forget even trying to wear shorts if you have leather seats…ouch!
But it’s not all bad.
I’ve seen people bake cookies in their cars.
They don’t turn out quite as good as oven baked, but still pretty good.
I’ve also seen people fry an egg on the sidewalk.
I’ve never tried one of those to see how they taste, though.
And ice cold drinks are just so darn refreshing when it’s hot out.
Ice water is awesome.
Lemonade is delectable.
Tea is terrific.
Ooh, I almost forgot about ice cream.
Nothing better on a hot day than a nice ice cream cone.
But you better eat it fast before it melts down all over your fingers.
