Oh, good, it's cooling off. Earlier today my car said it was 95 outside.
Yesterday was getting there, but today was the first day I really felt like I was walking into an oven when I opened the back door.
I actually look forward to this weather first, the oven heat, much like I look forward to the first soupy fog of the year, the first scary-in-ferocity thunderstorm of the year, the first ice. It's a timestamp of sorts, a way to define where in the year we are.
And so while in a few weeks I will crank the air conditioning in the car, today I drove with the windows down, embracing the heat, relishing the day.
