As most of my readers know I live in Baltimore...where the heat index at eleven a.m. was 114 degrees Fahrenheit. When I write a post about the weather, there's always some competition among commenters about how hot is it where they live (or cool). But the bottom line is it's hot, hot, hot and uncomfortable. And more importantly, it's life threatening. So if you don't have a really, really, really important reason to go out--then stay in.
