How HOT is it where you are?

It is so hot here, the tar is melting off the telephone poles and rubbed right onto Henry.
That's right, the TAR is melting.

When I got Henry in, I thought it was grease/oil, but upon further investigation it is tar.

Enough to cause a stink, but not hit his skin. I cleaned it up with brushing, dish detergent, and baby powder - but he's got to go to the groomer in the morning. Here is a pic, Henry is normally light grey . . .

Mid 90's here, but it is so humid you can hardly breath! Heat advisory in place until tomorrow night... heat index is over 100 or so and to be worse tomorrow before we get relief on Sat. I hate this.

Same here in Michigan, I can't wait for the cool down, 80 degree temps sound wonderful. Poor Henry... I hope it all comes out.

Hot? it's SO HOT you can't even call it hot anymore. We are able to get our two walks in, very abbreviated and at 6:30am and 8:00pm, but both of us need them. Timmy really misses his walking buddies but until things cool down that's not going to happen. How on earth did Henry get tar on him, was it puddled on the street? As much as I like summer I think I'm ready for fall.

Being surrounded by water, we've had temps from the mid to upper 80's, with a sea breeze kicking in most days, although we have had our share of humidity too. Can't wait for relief to come over the weekend. I am definitely not a summer person. It's my least favorite time of the year even though I live at the ocean.

90's here with Humidity it dreadful. If Jack wants /needs to go outside, Dexter will not even want to go outside. Dexter dislikes the heat, Jack loves it.

It hit 100 here today for a brief while... The hottest weather we've had in several years. Kodi and I stayed indoors (with AC) most of the day!
