Kansas heat today

Why continue bitching about the heat? Because this morning on NPR we have been advised that the heat index will reach 112°-117°. Whoah!

Also, in Kansas City there's a smog advisory, and the city requests people keep driving to a minimum - and they're putting their money where their mouths are: Today you can ride the bus for 50 cents!

Stupid clouds last night prevented Perseid-watching. Why couldn't the clouds come out during the day when people could use 'em? Did anyone get out to enjoy the show?

Best,
Chris
