How Hot is it?
I promise not to turn this into a weather blog, but I just wanted to mention that is is in fact hot enough that the official explanation for a fire on a deck is that the hanging plant spontaneously combusted. So, if you thought spontaneous combustion was the stuff of uban legends, well, now you know better. And for a list of things from Wikipedia that are known to spontaneously combust, go here. Now you have another reason to avoid manure piles. You're welcome.
