Oppressive. Most oppressive.

From Capital Weather:

"A Heat Advisory is in Effect through 8pm Tuesday.

The record setting, deadly heat wave that had Vegas and Phoenix simmering, scorched Denver and baked Chicago arrives here today. Temperatures Monday through Wednesday should range from 94-102 with high humidity and heat indices from 100-115."

115? Pack me in ice and call me Walt Disney. I don't want to move for the next couple of days, let alone go outside. Let the collective shuddering and sweating begin...

The Western Desert may live and breathe in 45 degrees, but Washington just turns into a steaming, stinky sweatsock.

Maybe this situation can be your "ace up the sleeve"...

IF you decide you are not up to going to "The Wedding"... you can claim a case of HEAT STROKE. I would believe you.

I am so unfamiliar with the sensation of a hot summer since I moved out here... if I had to face those kind of temperatures I would melt like the Wicked Witch of The East in Oz... so help me, Toto... I would.

My sincerest sympathies for your current seasonal suffering. I prescribe massive doses of Diet Coke with Splenda and a few Ambien for the caffeine induced insomnia.
