Havin' a Heat Wave

Not a tropical one, but a hot one nonetheless. The last couple of days, the dogs have balked at going outside after the sun is up - you can't blame them! Cats Tippy and Jem stretch out, but you still find them laying across patches of sun shining on the floors; an inexplicable spot to the rest of us.

We haven't made it to 100 yet, but have gotten quite close. The temperature over night dropped to a chilly 75.  Upstairs has remained in the mid-80s, so we've retreated downstairs to the guest bedroom to sleep.  The greenhouse has needed double doses of water, too.
