Yes, it's August, and on the East Coast that means our hottest month.
Currently it's about 101 degrees, with a heat index of 110. It's actually not THAT humid out there, which is good - or the heat index would be over 115!
Doing anything outside right now is pretty much out of the question. Which is why I'm on my computer, enjoying the AC. Don't know how they did it over a hundred years ago, when there was no such thing as air conditioning.
Maybe that's why everyone headed west!
