I have a t-shirt with that picture on it. It's sort of a local cultural icon.
From the National Weather Service....
"SUNSHINE AND FEW CLOUDS. HOT. HIGH 99F. WINDS WSW 5 TO 10 MPH. A HEAT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 PM CDT THIS EVENING. A STRONG UPPER LEVEL RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE WILL BRING HOT TEMPERATURES TO THE MID-SOUTH TODAY. GULF HUMIDITY WILL COMBINE WITH TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER 90S TO PRODUCE A HEAT INDEX OF 105 TO 108 DEGREES THIS AFTERNOON."
I woke up in a scowly mood this morning. Bah humbug on everything. I hate summer. Every time I go out the door I'm attacked by kamikaze mosquitoes with a six foot wingspan. I've got nine mosquito bites on my legs, I'm itching, it's hot as hell, the sun's glare makes my eyes and head hurt, my hair is like a sauna on my neck, so I'll have a perpetual ponytail for the next three months, and getting dressed up to go anywhere is useless because all clothes are uncomfortable and look like a wrinkled, damp wad of dish towels five minutes after going out the door.
It's even too hot to drink coffee. I'm having an RC for breakfast.
I'm so ready for October.
