For anyone still reeling after two days of high temperatures consider this from Kirk Tuck, a photographer who lives in Austin, Texas:

"As of July 19th Summer we have had 78 days over 90° (actual temps) and now 41 days in a row over 100°*. We're all getting just a little tired of the relentlessness of it all. Can't wait to see the electric bills....sigh."

As he alludes, in places such as where he lives, air conditioning becomes an essential part of daily life. Tuck is also a keen swimmer, but the sun heats the temperature in the outside pool to 84°. That temperature would qualify as a hot day.

* All temperatures in Fahrenheit, of course. The way it ought to be. :D
