The long foretold heatwave arrived today, meaning it was about 40 degrees outside. I observed the occasion by taking pictures down by the river. A neighbor kid of mine was playing outside in a wife beater. I don’t know who he thought he was kidding, but I know we all shared his general sense of elation at a reprieve from the polar vortex, if not his wild overestimation of the temperature and trumped-up sense of machismo.
I have a lot of pictures from today to sort through and plan to post them in increments throughout the week.
