It’s hot as H-E-double-hockey-sticks here in the Northwest. We’re not used to the heat, spoiled as we are by our mild climate, temperatures moderated by the ocean, etc. etc. Most of us don’t have central air conditioning, so all the fans and portable air conditioners in the area are now sold out, and some of us are beginning to complain. I’m a great complainer when it comes to HEAT, but I decided that perhaps I should just take a moment and remember my last prolonged complaining session…(remember all that snow and ice and the snow days that had to be made up at the end of the school year??)…and appreciate what we’ve got!
