Wow. It’s hot. It’s been hot for a few weeks but this week is really hot. I didn’t remember it being this hot since I moved to Maryland in 1998 but then I read this in today’s Baltimore Sun:

For example, the summer of 2002 saw 44 days of 90-degree-plus weather at BWI from June 1 through Aug. 31, including one unbroken stretch of 11 August days with temperatures in the 90s. It was among the worst heat waves in recent memory. The next summer, 2003, saw just 14 days in the 90s.

I had no idea!
