I mean, honestly, 105 degrees? Again?


So hot I’m not even gonna write anything today.

One thought on “The Pencil Today:

  1. Susan Sandberg says:

    It is too hot to move, and that creepy Twilight Zone clip hits pretty close to home. And seriously, folks, Heritage Days at Paynetown? People are dressing up in 1760’s re-enactment garb on a day like today? Goddess have mercy, protect them from heat stroke! Not even Lake Monroe will be refreshing today.
