daisy_knotwise was taking Julie to the dentist today when Katie needed to be picked up from school, so I walked across the field to meet Katie when school got out. It was 97 degrees out with 47 percent humidity, according to our backyard weather station. This was absurdly hot.

But apparently not unprecedented. It was this hot sixty years ago at this time, back in 1953.
