Heat

It's bloody hot here...supposed to hit 39 yet today, and it's been in the high 30s for days. Surprisingly, it hasn't been too bad. We've been sitting in the lake whenever possible, and I've been riding my bike on the Greenway instead of sitting in the hot car. Ryan and I had a great ride in Crawford on Saturday, despite the heat, dust and some mechanical troubles -- so it is possible to stay busy.

Last night we stayed up at Mom's, and it was still 36 degrees after the sun went down. Had a beer on the deck while Ivy fell asleep in the lounger. Then Tannis and I saw the space station cruise across the sky, 400km above the earth, travelling at 17,000 miles per hour, followed by four shooting stars in the next hour or so. So mellow.
