Today, the temperature in Washington, D.C. broke a 77-year-old record, according to the Washington Post. At 102 with a heat index of 105, it was so hot that the Metro rail system took precautions and made the trains slow down by about 15 m.p.h. Apparently, when it's this hot, the steel tracks can soften.
That's right. It's so damn hot here that the rail tracks could melt (ok, that's an exaggeration).
I suppose I should be grateful to not be in New York, where rains closed the subway and a tornado hit Brooklyn.
This weather SUCKS.
Meanwhile, I see it's only 79 in Eugene right now.
