    Dude, just get an ice cold beer….Better yet, a double gin and tonic….Or read some Carl Hiaasen in honor of the heat!

    A fellow Minnesotan! And even this “road construction” season is on the cool side – low 40’s in northern Minnesota the other day, with more cool weather on the way.

    I thought the Minnesota seasons went; almost winter, nearly winter , winter, and damn poor sledding.

    It was hotter than a two dollar Tijuana tart on a Saturday night when the Fleet’s in!

    One of my friends in Sheboygan, WI, said, “you’re going to love summer in Sheboygan. It’s our nicest day.”

    Actually, we did have several days of really icky, Florida-type, humid weather with highs of 95. Then a high of 75 blew in.

    You do know that drinking alcohol raises your body temp? Not a good thing to do on a hot day.

    Of course, if you drink in an air conditioned place, or pool, no problem!

    too bad he doesn’t have a boat to get out on the water or a reason to visit thee beach. OH WAIT! didn’t they have a boat once? must have got wrecked by Sandy so no reason to go to the coast.

    Here’s the original context for Arlo’s musings, from Clavis Calendaria: Or, A Compendious Analysis of the Calendar by John Henry Brady (1815): “When the antients first observed Sirius emerging as it were from the sun, so as to become visible to the naked eye, they usually sacrificed a brown Dog to appease its rage, considering that the Star was the cause of the hot sultry weather usually experienced at its appearance; and they would seem to have believed its power of heat, conjoined with that of the sun, to have been so excessive, that on the morning of its first rising the Sea boiled, the Wine turned sour, Dogs grew mad, and all other creatures became languid; causing to man, among other diseases, burning fevers, hysterics, and phrensies. That the weather in July and August is generally more sultry than at any other period of the year, and that some particular diseases are consequently at that time more to be dreaded, both to man and best, is past dispute. The exaggerated effects of the rising of Sirius are now, however, known to be groundless; and the superior heat usually felt during the dog-days, has been more philosophically accounted for.”
