How hot is it?

Really really hot. In fact, we've had temps below 110 the past two days and it feels downright chilly. Over the weekend, we had power-outage refugees staying with us. My friends lost power repeatedly until the transformer in their neighborhood was finally replaced on Sunday. So, between Friday and Sunday, we were a family of 8, including 2 teenagers. The teenagers were relieved to be able to IM their friends and my kids were in heaven with two older "brothers." The adults enjoyed lots of lounging, eating and drinking, generally trying to stay cool. The air conditioner finally caught up early Monday morning for a brief time. The swimming pool felt like a bathtub, but was still cooler than the air. My lungs feel like I've spent the week in L.A. YUCK! The weather in New Orleans felt divine compared to this!
