Whoa! That is some hot weather! I guess I better not whine about 90 degrees. It's difficult to keep everyone cool enough when it's humid, too. Interesting articles - thanks for posting them.

We were well into the 100's this past weekend and yesterday. The next few days temps are suppose to be in the 90's.
Cool wave in Oklahoma!
