We're Having A Heat Wave!

It's July in Nebraska and one never knows what Mother Nature has in store for us.  It's been quite a year already with unseasonable cold temps last winter, unusually high rain falls this spring, major flooding and now off the charts heat and humidity.  Yesterday driving home the car's outside temp reading said 104 degrees.  Egaads ... am I back in Phoenix?  The heat index was almost 120 degrees.  Unbelieveable. And there is no break in sight until early next week when the temps will drop back into the high 80's, which is normal for late July.  And the bug population is exploding!  I think I actually saw a mosquito waterskiing in a puddle this morning!  And they are now saying that the flood waters won't be receding anytime soon, and that we can expect standing water until DECEMBER!  At that point the water will freeze and we can host the winter olympics for ice skaters!  So how's the weather in your town and what are you doing to stay COOL this summer?
