Baby it's hot outside















It’s been six years since the temperature reached triple digits here around Chicago. We registered 104 degrees yesterday and will be facing a heat index of up to 105 today. Much of the rest of the country continues to bake.

So I offer this air-conditioned photo, taken in Algoma Wisconsin on a day 100 degrees colder than it will be today. Makes my ears sting just remembering how cold it was that morning.

Click on photo for a bigger blast of arctic air. Chill out.

Yeah, it's been pretty hot around Greater Chicagoland and the reset of the country, lately... But the rain's been a nice-if that's the right word-change to all the humidity we've gotten in the past few weeks. But then again, you're right-it's not like Chicago winter's any better. I can still remember my hands cracking and peeling...

Beautiful and serene. It's pretty hot here in Texas too. Thanks for the blast of "coolness".
