how hot was it?

Well, it was 90+ degrees all weekend, and about 100% humidity.

It was so hot that if you stepped outside you would be drenched with sweat within minutes.

It was so hot that after 10 minutes of gardening I had to sit down because I thought I might pass out.

It was so hot that my window air conditioners couldn't seem to cool down the house.

It was so hot that even the dogs didn't want to stay outside. After a couple of minutes they would scratch at the door to go back in.

It was so hot that my friend and I were pretending to be interested in awful stores just to get inside and enjoy air conditioning.

It was so hot that it gave new meaning to the term "swamp ass".

It was so hot and I was so dripping wet with sweat that I slipped down the stairs (because even my feet were sweaty) and smashed my hand into the banister. I thought I broke my hand for a while, but now it is just 17 shades of purple and swelled to twice its normal size.

Now why did I leave San Francisco again?

Yes, ma'am. It really was that hot!

I hope your poor hand is better soon!

Oh my! You poor thing. Be careful! I hope you feel better today.

I read your latest post too. Send your in laws over my way, won't you? ha ha ha
