“I’m down to my last inch of skin.”

It’s official: the Dallas area has hit a full 70 days of temperatures exceeding 100 degrees F. This breaks the record set back in 1980, my first summer in Texas. (And that was a summer, spent delivering papers for the Dallas Times Herald in brain-frying heat. I wouldn’t want to go back, but I have fond memories of that summer all the same.) As my father-in-law puts it so well, this isn’t a record. This is a losing streak.
