Dog Days Come Early

It's been incredibly hot the past several days. Up into the mid to upper 90s every day, and at night often no cooler than the mid 70s. Last night I was up at two in the morning, at which time it was still 82 degrees outside...

We've been getting August weather in early June. I'll be honest, when it doesn't get down to at least 70 overnight, I don't function very well the next day.

Down to at least 70 overnight: in this part of the country that's ordinarily a reasonable expectation, except for a few of the very hottest dog days of summer. I don't know how we got into the dog days at least six weeks early this year.
