When is this misery going to end?

It is so incredibly miserable outside right now. This God-awful heat continues here in ChiTown, much to my dismay. Thank the sweet Lord, my air is fixed!! I was out shopping with my sister this afternoon, and every time we stepped outside, it felt like we were walking into a blast furnace. There was an alert earlier today about the poor air quality. The 283% humidity didn't make it any easier to breathe. We both decided that walking to our car felt like we were walking next to an open grill, or standing in front of an open oven, while trying to breathe underwater. Sounds great, right?

Now, for the past hour, there's been a constantly streaming weather alert on the TV. We're supposed to get severe thunderstorms tonight. Great. I have a feeling my power will be going out soon. And, if that happens, we're screwed. We'll be stuck here cuz CSJ is out of town again.

Oh, holy crap, they just broke into the show I have on to say there is now a tornado warning going on. WTF?! Guess I'd better go check in with the rest of my bloggy buddies before the power goes out.

Take care and be safe. Is your basement the best place to be for tornado warnings?

So, did you survive the evening? If you're dead, don't worry about writing back. I'll understand. m.
