Heat Wave

Last weekend my mom sent me a photo of the front page of their Wisconsin State Journal.

Here in College Station we're going on approximately 1,347 consecutive days of 100+ degree highs and lows that barely dip to 80 degrees.

Our air conditioner runs nonstop during the day (thermostat set between 76 and 78 degrees), and clicks on at least a couple of times an hour throughout the night (thermostat set at 72 degrees).

Our laundry load has doubled, because if we go outside for more than .7 seconds our clothes are drenched with sweat and we have to change.

And if you can believe it, I actually sweat throughout the kids' swimming lessons, even though I'm not doing anything physical and I'm IN THE POOL with Hallie.

What I wouldn't give for a high temperature of 92 degrees...
