We can’t move. At all. It is just too hot.
From the time the sun rose until it set, we really did not move much at all. Except to drink water. Lots and lots of water. (And Hu-Dad added ice cubes a couple of times during the day).
We checked the long-range forecast and, believe it or not, there is not a single mention of snow over the next week. Worse, the temperature predictions are basically the same as we had today.
We are thankful we don’t have the fires and drought of Alaska and the West or all of the rains of the Texas region, but can we get a heat break, please?
Now, you may wonder why we are not inside the house enjoying the air conditioning. For our newer readers, we don’t have air conditioning. That’s right – we are poor, deprived dogs that do not have a magic cold air machine. Can you imagine the horror? Notice how our inside temperature is essentially the same as our outside temperature.
P.S. – Unfortunately, the valleys around us are all at least 10º warmer, so we don’t travel even for hiking when it is this hot. Based on the forecasts, the pictures above will be our activity levels for the next few weeks.
