I'm Melting. Really. Melting.

I don't know how your summer is going so far, but I should mention it's 300 degrees in Chicago these days. Okay, I exaggerate. Maybe it's only 250 degrees, but whatever it is, I'm pretty sure I can fry an egg on the sidewalk.

Now, I'm not supposed to be a heat-sissy, since I grew up in Dallas (where 98 degrees is spring-time weather), but there is little to no air conditioning in Chicago. It's one thing to live in a broiler if you've got central air. It's quite another thing if you've got a window unit that cools about two square feet of a room and trips your circuit breaker ever time you try to blow dry your hair.

I thought my reward for slogging through 10 months of sub-zero weather (10 months is how long winter feels to this thin-blooded southerner) was a mild summer with lots of outdoor concerts and a cool breeze off the lake. Not so. I am so sticky that I think soon I'm going to start acting as flypaper. I've even gotten complaints from Marco, my kitchen contractor, who is becoming about as regular a fixture in my house as Eldin in Murphy Brown's place.

I'm going to go stand by my open freezer door for awhile. Back in a bit!

I'm from MS, so I compltetely understand. It seems like, no matter how long I live in the South, the summers get hotter.

Ha! I'm in St. Louis and I just blogged about this the other day. It's been 90+ degrees lately and humid as all get out! I was out at like 9AM walking around and my clothes were sticking to me because I was sweating like crazy. There's been a heat advisory warning for the past couple of days and, unfortunately, we've already seen heat related deaths. All this and it's the BEGINNING of summer. Boy, what's August (typically the hottest month of the year in St. Louis) going to be like?
