While the situation is heating up (and appears to be taking on an uncomfortable air of permanence) in the Middle East, it is also heating up here in West Virginia. It is hot as hell, and I think I am going to do my best to avoid going outside today.
Every time it gets this hot I wonder whether I would rather be too hot or too cold, and I always come tothe same conclusion- too hot. At least you can survive when it istoo hot, provided you have ample water and shade. You die when it is too cold. Period.
Invariably, by posting it is hot as hell, two things are going to happen. The first is that a long and tortured (and usually wildly inaccurate) debate about global warming will start, and the second is that, inevitably, someone from AZ/NM/a place in the desert surrounded by sand, will state “You think it is hot there, you should try it here!”
