Seriously, everybody watch out for this crazy heat today. Every weather service I’ve been consulting (read: obsessively rechecking waiting for the numbers to magically recede) has predicted a different high temperature, but they all agree it’ll be somewhere around 100 degrees Fahrenheit. And WICKED HUMID. Same for tomorrow. And the low temperatures aren’t going to break 80 degrees!
As I was cruising for news stories this morning I saw this headline: “Weather Service Director Retires After Critical Investigation of Agency.” And I thought, Are people really so mad over this hot and humid weather that they’re taking it out on the National Weather Service? Were all these hurricanes and tornadoes of recent years inside jobs?
