    Send some of that to Boston. We'll take it!

    That said, the Covid-19 virus seems to do poorly in high heat and high humidity.

    Wow, one of the times when down there in April it hit 100 F. It was probably below freezing when we left Iowa, so we're lucky we didn't crack from the fast temperature change

    Not that it is a huge difference but now it is 102F. Maybe one more degree before it starts to cool down. I broke down and turned on the AC in the bedroom.

    It is supposed to get down to 50 tonight, and then a high of 87 on Friday. Winds are forecast to be 30 gusting to 45 in the afternoon. This is not making motorcycle riding seem all that attractive at the moment except maybe in the morning.
