These pretty flowers showed no sign of wilting in yesterday's record heat wave. And it was no dinky heat wave...
It was mindnumbingly hot.
It was the kind of hot where you can almost feel your molecules and atoms speeding up and turning the whole of your mass into a rowdy mosh pit of subatomic vibration. (Well, it certainly felt that way standing in the parking lot of OSH trying to find the keys to the car.) It was the kind of hot where you suddenly realize the tops of your ears are capable of sweating. Where you can drink a glass of water and wonder why you never noticed before that water is the very best thing that has ever crossed your lips and you simply must have more of it. RIGHT NOW!
My garden thermometer still hovered around 100 degrees at 5:00PM and it was 84 at midnight. The offshore flow pattern is expected to bring more heat today. I understand it's snowing in New York? Just like a teenager ... young Spring is so moody.
