Summer in Arkansas
Now that I'm well enough to resume walks over by the river, the weather has turned murderously hot -- heat warnings yesterday and today, and probably tomorrow. Yesterday it was 98 degrees, with a heat index of 104; today looks similar.
The heavy humidity is the worst part. I step outside and want to die.
We've got bats. They're coming down through a hole in the porch roof at night (where a light fixture used to be) and getting trapped, because the porch is screened, of course.
This is a delight for the cats, and maddening for me. I have taken to leaving the porch door open, so they can escape. Later today I plan to attempt to patch the hole in the roof. (The bats will be fine -- there are other ways out of the attic.)
