123 °F

It’s true! Right now it’s about 112 °F, but when I looked at our neighborhood weather station online report for the past 24 hours it showed the maximum temperature was 123 °F. It probably only reached that temperature for a few minutes when the sun was at its highest point of the day. It’s also possible that it was yesterday when it reached 123 °F. Thankfully it was not sustained! (if you look at the report on any day but today you will not see the same numbers that I saw)

Norm and I went grocery shopping earlier at the Wal-Mart supercenter. We were probably in there for an hour and I was freezing from the air conditioning so I went outside to thaw out while Norm waited through the checkout line. (Note to self: don’t go shopping on Saturdays — everybody does.) Anyhow, I found a shady spot right outside the door. Dozens of people were coming and going during the 15 minutes that I sat there, but two different women decided that I might need help. One of them asked if I was roasting and the other one asked if I might need help getting into the store. It’s good to know there are still kind people in the world who take notice of others. I was just fine and I let them know it and I also thank them for their concern for my well-being.

    Oh my, that is hot. Hey, that was great that two people stopped to make sure you were ok.

    It\\\’s time to come up to
    the pines, where it\\\’s ONLY
    going to be in the mid-90s!

    In the meantime, I invite
    you to take a look at my
    new blog, which is about
    the small stuff, not the
    Big Issues! (Problem is
    that I write an absolutely
    crappy rant! Therefore,
    I decided to avoid politics
    in my new venture!
