Be Careful What You Wish For

I realize that this post will generate zero sympathy and maybe even some outright irritation from readers in the colder climates.

You may be coping with sub-zero weather, snow, icy roads, black ice hidden in corners and Jack Frost and but we are dealing with an entirely different reality. It is absolutely sweltering out here today. So much so that all the windows are wide open to try and draw a cool breeze across the house. It is so hot that we've got the door to the garage open to try and draw some cool air that way as well.

It's so hot that all the dogs in the neighborhood are sitting in the shade panting loudly. But I'm much happier out of an office than I would be stuck inside looking out. And, on that note, I'm headed to the post office and the fruit stand.
