Helter Swelter

It's probably the heat that is giving me very strange thoughts between sleeping and waking. I always have strange thoughts in that period, but now they are very strange, but I still can't remember them. They are rather like dreams that continue after you wake up, then gradually evaporate and leave no trace but the awareness that they happened.

The heat remained intense today even as dusk neared, and is still unpleasant even now. It's supposed to go down to 71 degrees tonight, but I won't be surprised if it doesn't get that low. Tomorrow is still predicted to get up to 105. I suspect I'll have to leave the air conditioning on until sometime late Wednesday night. By then it should get cool enough that I can open the windows and turn on the fan.

Right now I've got the AC set to 78 degrees, and I can still feel a blast of heat when I go outside. I'll be glad when this hot spell is over. No triple digit days are in the long range forecast after tomorrow, but highs will stay in the nineties well into next week.

It looks like I'll be reading far into the night. Eventually exhaustion might let me get to sleep, but then I'll probably wake up fairly soon and frequently to us the bathroom, I'm drinking so much water. But maybe I'll get lucky and swat most of it out.

An to think that July and August are still ahead.
