I hear it's getting pretty hot in the US. Things are starting to heat up over here, too. It was the hottest day in quite a while in Britain today. It's been in the upper 90's here, 100 yesterday on the Atlantic side, for the last couple of days and a forecast of 102 for Friday. Luckily, we're leaving on Friday for England where it's supposed to be in the low 80's to 70's by the weekend. Since I've been over here, I have definitely gained a new appreciation for trees because they make shade.
