It’s been one hot summer. Here in Austin, Friday was the first day I can remember where the temp’s dropped below 100 degrees (earlier that week, it was 107!), and it was all the locals could do but marvel at how wonderfully cool it felt. Heck, 96 degrees might constitute a heat advisory in most parts of the countrybut around here, we were picnicking outside. And I know central Texas isn’t the only place that’s been sizzling. My friends and family in the Northeast were constantly talking about the heatwave that never seemed to end. And whenever I watched Al Roker talk about what’s going on across the country, the words I heard most often were “heat advisory”.
Phew, I’m hot just thinking about it.
While I’d give anything to take my dog for a walk without breaking a sweat right now,(or to even be able to comfortably wear pants, or a shirt with sleeves!) I know I’ll be kicking myself come winter. If you’re in the same boat, I encourage you to enter the YoKids Real Food, Real Fun Sweepstakes for a chance to win a family trip to the warm, sunny Beaches resort of your choice in Turks & Caicos or Jamaica. Come February when everyone else is trudging through the wind and slush, you could be lounging on the beach while working on your tan. And then you can thank me.
