  • It’s too stinkin’ hot!

    I am a self-professed lover-of-all-things-summer.  I love hot weather; I love sitting on my deck in the sun with a great book; I love working up a good sweat on a run.  Hamburgers on the grill, sleeping in, fresh corn on the cob, ice cream – what could be better?  Temperatures for two weeks over 100 […]
