The heat here today has been unbearable. Not only is their high humidity but the last time I checked the temperature gauge it read 109.
We had to run to Target for some last minutes school supplies. The inside of the store felt like heaven. I think they had their air conditioner set somewhere around 60. It was quite a shock when we left the store and were thrown into what Samantha said "Must feel like how Hell really is". Yes, it is that hot.
As we were pulling out of Target we noticed lots of black smoke coming down the hills behind us and flames shooting into the air. A forest fire had obviously started while we were shopping. Now we had black smoke to go along with the unbearable heat.
Earlier in the day, while the TV was on, they interrupted programming to announce a severe flash flood warning in a local area. They didn't just flash it across the screen at the bottom like usual, they interrupted programming with a big booming voice making sure no one missed the announcement nor the magnitude of seriousness the announcer wanted to convey.
We had lighting and loud thunder but not rain in our area.
I was waiting for the locusts and poisonous snakes to appear at any moment but thankfully we were spared.
It has been one wild afternoon around here.
