Week in Photos: Heat Wave

It was so hot last week that I could barely stand to go outside for more than five minutes.  I’m not someone who sweats a lot, but for temperatures above ninety, even my body can’t stay cool.  But summer is going to be over soon, and I know I’ll be trapped inside soon enough, so […]
