Gems Amid the Heat

The heat this time of year is a bit more bearable when you come across downtown planters filled with colorful flowers. They lift my spirits amid suffocating humidity. These sunshine-yellow gems greet people by The Downtowner Restaurant parking lot.

Speaking of heat and humidity, Thursday's forecast is for 103-degree temps and a 110-degree plus heat index followed by more of the same the rest of the week. Air conditioners are struggling to keep up, and you know it's hot when it's 80 degrees inside both at work and at home! And I know we're not alone. Much of the nation is baking today.

I've read about the heat wave in the South now. Hoping you have a bit of air-conditioning somewhere--at home or work. It's absolutely necessary over here on Maui!
