Like Burningbird, We’re Burning in St. Louis

Shelley Powers accurately captures the today’s summer feeling here in St. Louis in her post “Don’t Visit St. Louis.” It’s demoralizing and a little dangerous. This afternoon, My daughter and I drove over to the bookstore and passed two banks with signs indicating the temperature was 105 degrees. And it’s that wet, humid kind of heat. Apparently no relief in the forecast.
Steve Nipper was in town yesterday at the rethink(ip) tour made its second stop in St. Louis in recent weeks. Doug Sorocco was here a few weeks ago. We got a few hours to have a great conversation, but I think that Steve experienced enough summer weather to be in hurry to get back to Idaho.

    My wife needed our car, so I borrowed my father-in-law’s new car for the drive down to St. Louis (from Central Illinois). When I got back, I told my father-in-law that I got his car up over 100. After his eyes got real big I finished…”100 degrees.”
    It WAS a great conversation…next time well meet on my turf in January.

    That is pretty funny. If you were down here in Texas you could brag about getting it over 115!!! (with the heat index of course)
