I thought I'd burned my nose this afternoon when I made the mistake of breathing through it while I was outside. It's that kind of day. But here's the dumbest thing about hot weather: the heat index. At 1:30 this afternoon, the Washington Post's weather page said
I think this whole heat index thing is just a ridiculous way to be self-aggrandizingly dramatic about the heat - like you can brag/complain to your relatives who live in cooler climates that it feels like 107!! No, it does not. It feels like 93 and really freaking humid, which is to say, it feels awful.
The high today was 99 - I'm curious whether we're going to get the 100+ temperatures they've been warning of.
