Is This Hell?

 We're getting a little preview of what hell might feel like if we were burning there....

We're in the middle of a heat wave. Yesterday was 103 degrees and today is expected to be 105. Tomorrow will be much the same and then we slide down into the high 90s. Be still my heart.

You know its going to be a hot one when the overnight low temperature is 76 degrees. (00)

My ass will be sitting in front of a fan and a squirt bottle of water will be at hand. Other than that, not much else will be going on.

(the photo is not of a burning bush, but a Christmas cactus that bloomed a few weeks ago.)

We haven't had much in the way of heat waves this summer. We have had a lot of rain though and just enough cool weather for people to want to get out and about. I like the Christmas cactus. My Mom used to love those. I have never tried one.

Portland was featured on the Weather Channel last night, so of course I thought of you. There's nothing like that kind of heat to take all the energy out of your body.

We not had much of a problem with alot of heat along the coast this far south yet, but if I were to go inland where my mother is liviing at I am surely I would melt like a ball of wax!

Nice close up shot of the blooming christmas cactus

I love the photo of your hot house flower. As for the picture you painted with words, well, it takes what it takes. Stay cool and drink up.
