Enough with the heat already.
After three straight days of it hitting triple digits, we're finally getting a reprieve. Not. Every year I complain about temps in the 90s, and every year I am completely ignored. And for those of you in Arizona or Nevada or some other "It's always hot here" area, DO NOT POST A "YEBBUT" COMMENT! You chose to live on the sun. You are supposed to be hot and miserable all summer long. Not me. When I moved to Denver, it was warm and sunny and perfect, and it rained every afternoon for an hour to cool things off and give the vegetation a drink of water. Now? It's just goddamn hot and dry. We had a wonderfully rainy spring, which filled us all with hope for a summer like the old days. Then, a couple weeks ago, hope took a donkey punch to the back of the head.
