87F (30C)
Clear
Humidity: 57%
Feels Like: 92F

And THIS is the coolest it will be all day. We're looking at actual temperatures of over 100F with heat indexes "well above" that. I know this kind of heat isn't unusual in other parts of the country, but it is for Minne - no snow - ta! Thankfully, I have the day off work today and don't have to walk out the front door for any reason. I have leftover homemade, Kung Pao Chicken (better the next day), two gallons of homemade iced coffee, and, to nibble on, chips and salsa and Australian licorice.

Best of all, I have you guys!

Interesting how this heatwave seems to be affecting the north as much or more than parts of the south - would never happen here, though perhaps it would if we were in the middle of a large continent - is it unusual there?

It's not unusual for Minneapolis to get a day or two in the 90's every summer, but this kind of heat wave.... absolutely it's unusual. I can handle -20F (-29C) much better than I can handle anything above 80F (27C). I'm the ultimate heat wimp. But, I knew this past winter that this harsh, hellish summer was coming so I prepared as much as I could. No one else believed me then but they do now!)

I have two sayings about this heat:

1) When it's cold, you can put on enough clothes or blankets to get warm. But, when it's hot, you can only take off so much before you get arrested. Even then, it doesn't help!

2) Winters were made for quilts, cocoa and good books by the fire.

Fair
88 F
Dewpoint 68 F
Humidity 52%
Heat Index 92 F

Excessive heat watch in effect Thursday and Friday with heat indicies of 105-110 F expected. Highest heat index I've experienced so far this year is 102 F and it was suffocating. "Coolest" high I see is 85 F in the forecast.

With the excessive heat and temps here in Minneapolis, people have started "dashboard cams" in their cars. They're putting a tray of cookie dough on their dashboards while they work and the cookies are baking - fully. I don't know who on earth would want to watch that, but, apparently dashboard cooking is common in places, like Arizona, where the heat is usually high.

Not me. The only cookie dough I want right now is in my ice cream!
