El Dorado is baking like the rest of the country under the summer's heat. A recent editorial in the New York Times opined that the heat of summer follows about two weeks after the solstice (June 21). It is right on time then.
Some friends went to the lake last weekend. Their a-c kept compressing the whole time. It never stopped, and the temperature inside never dropped below 80 degrees. Glad I wasn't there.
Keep your pets indoors, drink plenty of fluids, find a rock and crawl under it, and thank God you're still alive.
President Reagan is reported to have said somewhere: "It's not always important that they see the light---just feel the heat."
