It sure is hot

We spent the day on the road returning from Florida.

Arriving back home in suburban Atlanta around 8:00 pm, the National Weather Service was reporting the local temp as 100 degrees.

Around 6:00 pm near Milledgeville, the external thermometer in our car showed 112. It tends to read high, but we can't recall a time it was off my more than three degrees.

I hope there's enough electricity around to keep everyone's A/C going.

But it's days like today that make me wonder how well we'll fare after all those coal plants targeted by the EPA are shut down. How much more likely will blackouts and brownouts be on days with temps like today's come 2016 or 2017?
