Glad to see the site is back up.
I guess I now have to get use to all the "newness" . Looks good.
Now back to the " air" . I could not believe it when I woke up to thunder this am that it was 82 degrees with a heat index of 86 degrees.
I live in Minnesota ! This is weird. It did cool down to 72 after the rain poured down. I was able to walk my dogs. But they say that this will only make us even more humid
and feel even hotter this afternoon. Predicting 98 degrees with a heat index of up to 110 to 115 degrees. WOW.
II you are in this heat wave please be careful ! This is a real stress for those with lung issues.
