Hot, Humid, Hazy

This is day two of three days of 90-degree weather, officially a heat wave.

Anyone who does not have air conditioning at home should consider finding an air-conditioned place to stay for a few hours, be it the Senior Center, a shopping mall or a public building.

On the National Weather Service map, an ominous red patch has been edging up toward us from the Philadelphia area. It indicates an excessive heat warning, so maybe it will get worse here before it gets better.

Neighbors or relatives should look in on seniors or others who may be in danger of dehydration or heat exhaustion. Things will change by the end of the week.

The heat has left this writer with a mental haze of sorts. A few possible stories have fallen through or are not ready yet. For example, I thought it would be interesting to do a story about young people going to work at an amusement park in the new $75,000 bus whose purchase the City Council approved. Alas, the bus won't be here until the end of the summer.

A quest for details on the July 4th parade and celebration also came up short. Details will not be final until later in the week.

Just now, my attempt to put up a gallery of Black-Eyed Susan photos was thwarted by Blogger.

Oh well. Maybe a trip to the air-conditioned retail palaces of Westfield is in order.

Don't forget the redevelopment forum 7 p.m. tonight at Washington Community School. I will miss it due to another obligation.
