Planet Earth is overheated. And according to an NBC News report, there’s a limit to how our bodies can function optimally. We inherently know that – but the research comes at a time when the planet has hit its highest average readings ever recorded. 104 to 122 is the range where our bodies really revolt against the heat.

Thank “heavens” we’re not fully on broil yet this summer. As I write this on Friday morning, I have my windows open to hear the birds chirping. I don’t remember being able to do that many other July days in my decade here in the desert.

We’ll have our dog days of August for sure, and we’ve have a few very hot days. But considering our location, it’s been a great summer thus far. Maybe heatwave recipients Florida and Texas are being punished by some supreme being for their hateful anti-LGBTQ+ laws? God only knows….
