"It's like a heatwave....."

My apologies to Martha and the Vandellas, but with this horrible weather we've been having, that old song is firmly stuck in my head.......

It's like a heatwave, burning in my heart
I can't keep from crying
Tearing me apart

I know the song wasn't about the weather, but somehow it seems rather appropriate right now!!  This heatwave is most definitely tearing me apart -- and just about everybody else I know.  Right now, as I'm typing, it's 10:30 pm, and it's still 90 degrees outside.  Unbelievable......

We've been having Vacation Bible School at our church this week, and tonight it was so hot, almost all the activities were moved indoors.  Tomorrow's supposed to be even worse -- a heat index of 105 - 110 degrees???  Ouch......  Even my dogs hate this weather (why do they call it "dog days of summer", anyway??)

So very glad I live in an age where there's central air conditioning........  Yes, I am spoiled....!!

  1. "Why are these called the dog days?" Because everybody just lies around and pants in the heaat...the way dogs do in August.
