Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow

You're not paying attention if you are unaware much of the country is being fried by a heat wave. We're broiling out here on the east coast. Not only do we have intense temperatures, we have humidity. Humidity so thick it is like a living force pressing one into the ground and sapping all strength as it causes sweat to bead the moment one ventures outside of air conditioned spaces.

A wonderful time for our company picnic, yes?

The Powers That Be thought so.

I, not being a Power That Be, had little say in the matter.

But I did bring along a cooler of water balloons. Those delightful little gems brought me a little power of my own.

Way to go! One of those instruments of joy didn't perchance find a way into a Power Seat, no?

I live in Baltimore and went on holiday to Vienna to escape the heat wave. But it followed me there .... aah. Those water balloons sound fun.

Summertime in Virginia, baby... no gettin' around it.

Having said that, I would have blown off the company picnic.

Proving to your company at large that you're the idea woman we all know you are.

Here in S.C., whenever I step out the door my glasses instantly fog over. My kingdom for a set of contacts right about now.
