CHILLING OUT

It's 1 p.m. here in Arizona and the temperature is already up to 106.  It's forecast to hit 113 today, 118 on Friday and Saturday and 117 on Sunday before dropping a bit next week.  By a week from tomorrow the forecast high is 102, which is going to feel absolutely chilly!  But as my realtor told me in an email this morning, if you can stand 3 months of miserable heat the rest of the year is bliss.  We're waiting for that!

In the meantime, here's one way to cool off.  Take a look at these photos I shot in the acquarium area of Butterfly Wonderland the other day.





This last one certainly makes me feel cooler.

  1. Beautiful, but what the black mollies because they like to jump out of the tank.

    1. These tanks were behind glass with the tops not showing so no problem for me.

  2. And I thought Eden was somewhere in the Middle East, not in Arizona :)

    1. It actually only got to 108 on my thermometer this afternoon so not as bad as expected.

  4. Beautiful, soothing photos Bruce. I don't know which is worse, your heat or our humidity. As your Realtor suggested, it's time for us both to revert to survival mode until autumn.

    1. I'll take our heat without your humidity, Scott. But either one is too much at my age.

  5. A cold water bath is a quick fix, but doesn't last long.

  6. Love that last picture - pretty! I'll just stay over here in Ohio then - it's in the mid-80s here :)
