Hot heat

102 in the shade and it seems the whole world is inside today if they can be.  Seeing a man from Verizon up working to repair a telephone pole today, it occurs that as bad as the heat is, one is lucky to be able to work inside and not out in it. Stay cool my friends and see you when the heat wave snaps.
