It's been one sizzlin' hot summer!

"The world's hottest June on record followed the hottest May, April and March, making the first half of 2010 the warmest such period since 1880, when record-keeping began, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration." ~Philly.com, July 16, 2010

"Tuesday's oppressive heat climbed to 102 at Philadephia International Airport, marking the third time in 44 years temps hit 102 or higher." NBC Philadelphia, July 7, 2010

"Oppressive heat travels up and down the east cost for another weekend...High temperatures coupled with heat indices that reach in the triple digits, many are calling it the hottest summer that they have ever experienced. Weather officials say that this summer will indeed be one for the record books." V101.9, July 24, 2010

I really don't mind the heat so much, in limited doses that is. I actually rather enjoy a few hours of sweaty labor work on the weekends (followed by a nice dip in the pool!). It somehow makes me feel more accomplished. Slaving away on landscaping, exercising, or enjoying a day poolside is one thing, but being hot, sticky, gross, and sweaty while wearing business attire, no fun.

It makes for unhappy people.

Specifically an unhappy Jim. His tale can be found here.
