Basically, it's hotter than a snake's ass in a wagon rut
Hopefully, that's an obscure enough reference. Other titles I seen today on various Oregon blogs include "It's feelin' hot, hot, hot" and "It's hot! Damn hot!"
So exactly how stifling, scorching and sizzling is it in Oregon right now? According to the clock on the auto body shop near my office, it was 103 at 3 PM, easily the highest temp in many a PDX summer. There's no telling how hot it is on the other side of my office's windows but the trees outside are drooping and lava monsters are chasing Tektronix temps around the parking lot. The temps are fighting back with .99 Safeway squirt guns. It isn't a pretty sight.
Since my place is a heat sponge magnet, it'll no doubt be 145,000 degrees in there when I get home tonight. I'll have to pick up a fire extinguisher (for when I burst into flames) and no less than 15 DQ Peanut Buster Parfaits on the way there. In short, hot sucks.
