Apologies to Steve Miller.
Multiple days with temperatures over 100 degrees brings life to a much slower pace. The majority of my day is spent inside with the air conditioner running. It is 7 a.m. and the thermometer reads 80 degrees. It does cool down enough at night to open the windows and get some fresh air. The term cool down is relative. There is a 30 degree temperature swing, but that just means it's a comfortable 70 degrees as I sleep.
How hot is it? It's so hot that the birds don't fly in the heat of the day. They find a shady spot and sit still. They make up for it about daylight (4 a.m.) and all of their racket affects my sleep quality.
It's 7:30. Time to close the windows and turn on the a/c.
