Weekly Photo Challenge: Wrong

This is one challenge I’m not sweating. The first thing I think of that’s currently wrong is the incredibly long stretch of over-100 temperatures that much of the U.S. has been experiencing.

A couple of weeks ago, I got in my car and the temperature reading was 108 Farenheit! By the time I was able to stop and take this picture, I lost one degree of proof.

However, I was in Los Angeles last week moaning about the mid-country heat when a friend said that 107 was nothing. He’d recently gotten in his car in the San Fernando Valley and the temperature read 130! I’m surprised his tires hadn’t melted. Surely, he did, and I would have.

It seems like the Midwest often reaches 100 in the summer, sometimes lasting a few days, even one week. But this year’s crop of heat has broken records and seems relentless.

Temps. more than 100 for months at a time – that’s just wrong.

    So wrong! Seems to be our normal summer here in North Central Texas, except last summer we almost broke the record of MOST over 100-degree days in a row. That was god-awful. Luckily, this year, we have had quite a few days at 99. Wooo! Cool front. LOL.

      I know, right?! I think Kansas City may have broken its record for longest stretch of over-100 degree days this year. And, yes, we’re unbelievably thankful when it gets down to 99, 98! Incredible…incredibly wrong! : )
