Temperatures in the region have been hotter than any other time in the recorded past.
Last week we had three days in a row when the temperatures were almost 100°.
Normal summer temperatures around here are 85°. The heat affects everything including the people, animals, plants, and the environment. I get miserable when it is hot and humid. I find it difficult to concentrate on the easiest tasks. I have a state of the art air conditioner in my home and I keep it tuned up and well oiled so it always works well. I rarely leave the house unless it is absolutely necessary, especially during the summer months when it is hot and humid. I ordered marijuana from a delivery service last week. I received an estimated time of arrival that was 5:30 in the afternoon. It was still 97° at 5:30. The marijuana delivery driver showed up on time, but the guy looked miserable. He was sweaty and red and he looked very overheated. I asked the guy if he was riding his bicycle and he told me that the air conditioner in his car was not working properly. I felt really bad for the marijuana delivery kid and I offered to take a look at the problem the next morning if he came to the shop where I worked. The delivery driver thanked me for the help but he said he didn’t have any money till payday. I told the marijuana delivery driver that I would happily wait to get paid if there was a problem that he could afford to get fixed now.
