We knew it was hot... now it's "official"
I knew we were in trouble when I headed home last night, and my Explorer thermometer read 108°. I've seen it read that hot once before... in Walla Walla. Never here. It was a toasty 104° at my house, 6 miles and about 200 ft higher in elevation. I went to bed with a cold wet towel on top of me. Sounds weird (but less clammy than wetting the sheets, which a friend suggested). The towel, plus two big fans running on high, did the trick. We broke the temperature record for Seattle today... wonder if we also broke the nightime high temperature record? 99° at 9 pm should have made a blip in the record books, don't you think?
