The Heat Wave Continues....105 at 5:05pm was the official high temperature according to the Weather Channel...a record as far as I can tell, for July 4th or perhaps any day in recorded records.
Sam and I headed out to the artificial turf at Eastview Park at 9:30am...a single game, possible double header, was in store....both teams in the Junior ACME Sectional would move on to the District this weekend in Rockford, the the decision of who was to be #1 seeded and the #2 seed, would be settled on the field...Coldwater was undefeated and St. Henry, the 4-3 winner over Minster, had a single defeat at the hands of the Cavilers earlier in the Tourney....a Coldwater win in the first game would end the tournament and prevent us from playing in the afternoon heat.
Both Coldwater and St. Henry will be in the District Junior ACME at Parkway in Rockford this coming weekend....and both Sam and I will be working that as well...Sam on Sunday and me on Monday, not sure who will join them for the Crestview District, but it is likely to be Crestview and Wapak...but that won't be decided until tomorrow(Friday) night.
A Nation of Wimps?Nothing really political about that....just an observation that Patricia and I made yesterday while she make attempts to sit outside, rotating between the front porch, and the back steps....
Just how did we survive without Air Conditioned homes and cars in the past?
Our forefathers, grandfathers, and grandmothers, mom's and dad's never had Air Conditioners...the former, not electricity...yet somehow they survived...look no farther than the old western movies of the exploits of Cowboys and Indians...they didn't have, or apparently need, A/C...yet somehow we don't be able to survive outdoors in the heat....and don't tell me the heat is worst today due to the bullshit science called "Global Warming" or Climate Change....it doesn't exist, except in the warped minds of clowns like Al Gore and that half breed, half wiitted Marxist that currently resides in the White House.
Stay Cool! back later>>>>
Photos-Even the hearty Sunflowers have to suffer in this type of environment...the heat will remain brutal for the foreseeable future....The playing surface on the Artificial Turf at Montgomery Field in Celina has to be at least 20 degrees higher than the air temps. Even my old hometown of Venice, on Florida's Gulf Coast, (photo from 2000 at Venice Beach) can't hold a candle to this summer in the heartland so far....miserable it is, and the gallons of Miller Lite consumed don't seem to put much of a dent in that heat
