Hey, we gotcher heat wave
Hi folks out west beyond the Hudson. Your heatwave has arrived. Ugh. Right now, at four in the morning in Brooklyn, it's 82F. But in Manhattan it's 87F. This is one of the reasons I live in Brooklyn.
I'm heading for the hills this weekend. The foothills of the Berkshires where some friends and family live. Even there the daytime highs are forecast to be around 90F.
What makes it worth the trip is that it's forecast to be 65F at night. There is also a cool swift river to swim in, shaded by a tall hill covered with pine trees. And one of the local specialties is peppermint stick ice cream.
