We're getting a heat wave. It's supposed to hit 100 today, and again tomorrow. I was getting low on groceries anyway, so I just put in an order with Safeway for a delivery tomorrow morning, and I included 80 pounds of ice. I sure hope they don't run out.
But that's for tomorrow. For today, I just have to put up with it. Saturday night we get thunderstorms and then the heat lifts a bit.
It's a bit early for this; it's the kind of thing that happens usually in late July or in August. Anyway, usually it lasts a few days and then stops, and we don't usually get more than five or so really oppressive days per summer. (Last year we didn't get any at all.)
Maybe I'll spend this afternoon sleeping.
UPDATE: The official high, measured at the Hillsboro airport, was 96. (moan)
