Can You Feel the Heat?

After a crazy cold, snowy, record-setting winter, now we’re in the midst of a hot, possibly record-setting summer. Everything always seems to even out in the end.

Tomorrow is looking like it’s going to be the hottest day of the year—possibly the hottest day in many years—in the D.C. metro area. According to the National Weather Service, our high temperature is expected to be 101°F tomorrow with a heat index as high as 107°F. In fact, NWS has issued a somewhat-rare ‘Excessive Heat Warning.’

Needless to say, I’m not looking forward to it. I hate hot weather. I’d originally planned to do a bike ride tomorrow, but I think I’ll stay inside—where it feels a lot better than 107°F—and anxiously await the return of normal weather.

In the mean time, here’s a picture I took on my phone Monday just after a nice summer storm came flying through. Look closely and you’ll see the hint of a second rainbow above and to the right.
