"We Want to Be Your Weather News Source"

That's what the man just said. The weatherman, who said it was 107 yesterday, said it was this today:

I shall repeat:


And here's a Smalltown Mom Useful Tidbit (I know the acronym is SMUT. I planned it that way): In the European Union, the emergency number is 112. Not 911 but 112. You're welcome.

I love that word...tidbit...it's on my profile.

Main Entry: tid·bit
Pronunciation: \ˈtid-ˌbit\
Variant(s): also tit·bit \ˈtit-ˌbit\ [I don't think I want my tit bit! A little fondling would be OK.]
Function: noun
Etymology: perhaps from tit- (as in titmouse) + bit
Date: circa 1640
1 : a choice morsel of food [I think I'll sneak one right now before dinner.]
2 : a choice or pleasing bit (as of information) [This is what my blog is about. The choice or pleasing bits of my life.]

Is it possible that the weatherman is is messing with you? I had NO IDEA it gets that hot in your area.

It's an UNUSUAL heat wave.

Usually 100 is our max in the summer, and only occasionally.

Records are breaking all over the area.

Ew! We've had mid-90s here, and it makes me not-happy! I can't imagine 112!

Your SMUT made me laugh out loud.
