Hey, Lisa, it is ugly here in NE Illinois, too. I'm a mile from the lake and you'd think we would get a little "cooler near the lake" but not today.
Went to a benefit chuck wagon dinner/picnic type thing with my cousin and we lasted all of 2 1/2 hrs. It was awful, no breeze and being in the tents was really bad. I felt sorry for people working, but they were pushing free water like crazy which was a good thing! I'm sure they didn't want any cases of heat exhaustion. I'm glad I'm home, having my wine cooler and just relaxing! Sue
