Today's Foxtrot Cartoon, Coastal Heat, etc.
Today's Foxtrot cartoon is unusually funny. Link Here.
It's 101 outside in the shade here right now, and will probably reach a degree or two higher before long. Time to stay inside and do inside projects. Did put a new chain on the CX bike, maybe find time to ride it before dark. Then there's the new 6-band vertical ham antenna, maybe get that put together and ready to deploy in the yard. Got its mounting pipe driven into the yard, 7' down, after a late afternoon thunderstorm yesterday dropped temperatures by 20 degrees. A rare respite, but even then high 70's and ultra-high humidity while doing hard work is not comfortable. That's how it has to be for a while now: get things ready to do in the yard, then wait for a window to do them in.
People in Minnesota and other such places north of I-10 catch it in the winter. We're well into the equivalent of being snowed in here now, and for the next month and a half. This kind of heat can kill.
