It's so hot today ...

... that I actually made a blended margarita with ice.

What do you do to stay cool?

I just stay out of the sun. It's rarely warmer than 70s here. In fact that's the main reason I moved here!

Same here. I took a load of stuff to Goodwill and that's about all I got accomplished today, except for blending the margarita.

No riding today. Watched some TV, did some routine bike and car maintenance, and washed the car.
At about 4:00 p.m. had an ice cold beer.

I don't survive heat very well. In the Los Angeles area on a hot day I spend the whole time looking for shade. I also make comments like "Wouldn't a little snow flurry feel good right now?"

My theory is that us white folk spent too much time up by the Arctic circle and lost our protective sunscreen coating.

Do you know the stats for skin cancer if a caucasian is born in Miami and lives there until he retires? It's a little high, 100%.

I don't know, it's a stat. Maybe some people got it 12 times and others not at all. It's also from about 35 years ago. Suddenly sunscreen started getting popular.

For some odd reason, the vent in our bedroom was closed. Since opening it, I sometimes can be found wearing a hoodie while on the 'puter or napping. This house has lousy thermal management...
