Too Damn Hot!

It's going to be around 102 here today and that is way too hot.  This is not Phoenix, Arizona, it's coastal Georgia.  Where's my sea breeze?  The water temperature out at Tybee, our nearest beach, is 90 degrees.  I take cold showers and and I don't want to swim in water hotter than my shower.

My electric bill is due next week and this is an all electric house so I figure we'll have to refinance the national debt, again (I just ransomed my car from our local mechanic), because we've been running the air conditioner and all the ceiling fans night and day.
Mac tells me to stop moaning because last winter I begged for warmer weather and now I've got it.  So just goes to show be careful what you wish for.
