New York Heatwave


I feel like we are practicing for Death Valley! Yesterday it was 106 degrees here on Long Island!

We were hot! The Jeep was hot! Everyone and everything was hot!

The day started out innocent enough… warm and sunny… a typical July day. In the morning we practiced putting up the tent (it wasn’t yet QUITE that hot)… but by late afternoon the heat was so bad that even I went into the pool (an extremely rare occurrence). Later on we learned that it hasn’t gotten up into the 100 degree range here since 2001 (see NY Times news article with details) and that in general it is quite rare for it to be over 100 here.

For comparison, yesterday it was 116 in Death Valley (so only 10 degrees hotter!!!!!)
