Are we melting yet?

Will our weather break another record for today?  For the sixth day in a row will we have triple digit temperatures?  Give me one good reason why I should go outside and risk a heat stroke?  Yesterday the temps made it up to 105 breaking the old record of 99 from 2000.  Right now at 10am it’s already 94F with a heat index of 100F…plus it’s not over yet.  The weather man says we’ll be at 102 later today, but for some reason I think we’ll be over that mark.  One of the records that we didn’t beat this week was 107 back in 1881.  Could you imagine what it would be like back then??  I bet chickens were laying soft boiled eggs!  🙂  Ok… I give up.  It’s time to go grocery shopping…
