Hot Temps Mean These Are Really The Dog Days Of Summer
Hot temperatures that have been in the Midwest are spreading now to the Eastern coast of the United States. In the past few days heat indexes (feels like temps) have reached up to 120 degrees in Mitchell, South Dakota and 126 in Newton, Iowa! The Associated Press says 17 states from Minnesota to Texas are under heat advisories.
And in Lubbock we’re expected to reach over a hundred today and tomorrow with high nineties expected for the rest of the week, with (sigh) no rain in the forecast. One of the best photos about how hot it is comes from this pose by Elliott, the English Bulldog in Lamesa, Texas. His owners had just dumped their ice chest in the driveway! Now, that’s one cool canine!
