What a light show! Am I right? A thunderstorm rolled through the northern part of the city at around nine last night. With it came a decent amount of rain and some of the best lightning I’ve seen zinging through the sky so far this year.

Today is going to be a hot one. We are expecting a high of 28 degrees this afternoon and mostly sunny skies. The humidity will make it feel more like 32 degrees and the overnight low will be 16 degrees.

Tomorrow will be a scorcher again. I guess I’m setting up my kiddie pool again and risking electrocution by dipping my toes in cold water while I work. It will be fine, I’m sure of it!
