Yes, it's effing hot -- and it's only going to get more hellish as the week goes on. The National Weather Service is predicting highs in St. Louis of 97 today
, 99 tomorrow and 101 by Wednesday.
But, hey, it could be worse. In July of 1954 the temperatures hit well into the triple digits for days on end, culminating in a record high temp for St. Louis of 115 degrees. That year, St. Louis experienced 22 days of 100 degree
-- or hotter -- temperatures from late June to early September. And that was in a day when many homes did not have air-conditioning!
So, there. Aren't you feeling cooler already?
