Swelter Weight

How else can I describe the relentless sunshine topped with a thick frosting of humidity? (Add dew point to the mix, too).

It’s miserably hot. A swelter weight.

Tomorrow’s supposed to be hotter.

Let’s take a moment to thank our lucky stars for Willis Haviland Carrier and his 1911 “Rational Psychrometric Formulae”… an undoubtedly loquacious document that helped birth the modern air conditioning system.

If you’re suffering the heat, hunker over your AC vent (or window unit) and take solace in the fact that it could be worse: check out this video of Richmond, Va.

Suddenly 103 degrees sounds downright balmy.
