it’s damn hot.

my coworkers and i just got done running three miles outside our office in sleepy alpharetta and i have to say that it is damn hot out there.

and yes we are crazy.

temps peaked at 99 degrees yesterday, 1 degree shy of the record.

we’re forecasted to hit 98 today and today’s record is 101. i think it’s do-able. life rocks in an urban heat island.

are the rest of you surviving the heat?

    Besides the heat the Air Quality Index is through the roof. (

    My wallet is crying, but I’m happy I got the AC fixed in the car.

    In Chicago we hide inside in the winter. In Atlanta we hide inside in the summer.

    Albany (that’s “Al-Benny” to you furners) hit 106 today. Augusta hit 104. Looks like we’ll see 100+ here in the big city by end of week.

    a/c is the greatest creation known to hot cities. if someone can make one that’s green, I’ll buy it in a heart beat.

    It was 105 at my house today, and I will also thank God for A/C
