I encountered this scene while driving to my office this morning. This will not end well! Click to enlarge.

It is HOT! When I arrived at my office this morning, it was 93 degrees inside my office! Yikes! I immediately engaged the air conditioning, of course. It shall be a hot day today. It was hot yesterday (over 113 degrees), but it was not nearly as hot early in the day as it is today. I enjoy summertime and warm temperatures, but this is a bit much—even for me!
