    Thanks for the concern, this is no joke! It the worse since 1980, when we had 42 days of 100 or over. We're breaking records,
    daily.

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    .......Understand exactly what Dallas is going through butterfly$1,

    I was there in 1980 when that record was set. The difference this time around appears to be a belt of humidity encircling the earth, which keeps the heat of the Sun trapped; creating the affects of convection.

    Wow, Bro.Clyde, thats the difference. I didn't remember the heat of the 80's being like this. I never stop shopping during the 80's heatwave. It was a dry heat of sorts. but this heat, when you open the door, it takes your breath away, you can't breathe...if as tho' all the oxygen is gone from the air. This is simply brutal. So, I just stay in and enjoy Destee.com and the exchange of information, ideas and solutions that some offer. Coco (my chihuahua) is having a hard time. She went out one day, got too hot..
    when I finally got her in the house..... .she rush to her water bowl, put both front feet in, then turn around and put both back feet in,
    I was cracking up, then she put her belly over the bowl..I was done...LOL!
