The news here in New York just said “how long will this dangerous heat last?” The high today was 88. Continuing some of the most beautiful Summer weather I can remember. Fine, high, breezy, just perfect.
While I was bike riding today after work I saw two different people today with bags of ice on them. A lady on the street on 7th avenue right near my apartment had it ostentatiously and outrageously on top of her head, while she talked with a couple of friends. Another guy in the park had it on the back of his neck.
On the elevator this morning, someone said to someone else: “how was your weekend?” The woman answered “okay…it was just so HOT. It was horrible!”
Saturday and Sunday – yesterday and the day before – the high temperature in New York was 84 degrees.
