Same here today. I'm in the NYC metro area.

I'm doing OK, actually. We don't have A/C in our home, and that seems to have conditioned me well for the heat. I drink amazing amounts of water, and I don't stop until I stop feeling hot.

I rode to my client and back, about 1.5 miles each way. Then, I rode to my class and back. It's about 2 miles each way, downhill out and uphill back. I rode back slowly.

I'm teaching a bike repair class to kids. They got restless today, and some kids horsed around while I was helping the kids who wanted to work. I didn't bother reprimanding or redirecting them. I figure we have to be easy on each other.

Hmm, it's 7:30pm and it's still 100ºF here. Jeez.

Oh, I've been lucky. The interior of our house is only about 87ºF, thanks to a lot of shade from trees.
