Too damned hot

It’s 98°F, with a heat index of 100°, and the only significant rain is a line of showers dancing across the southern edge of Missouri.
That kind of weather kills my enthusiasm for riding, yard work, or doing anything that involves leaving the air conditioned comfort of my home.
We hit the post office, Farmers Market, Dillard’s and Kroger before it got really hot and I was pleased we found a really spectacular purse for Maria’s birthday.
I tried to talk her into an iPad, a Nook or even a Kindle, but she couldn’t bear to see me spend that kind of money.
TWO HOURS LATER: The temperature dropped about 20 degrees in a half-hour and it's raining like a mofo.
