It is very hot again today, but not so bad as it was yesterday when it reached 102F, which is hot for an area that sees normal summer highs closer to 70F. I do not enjoy either the heat or the harsh sun, but today I needed to get out and get away from everything. In the NE corner I stop to cool off under the branches of a fine weeping willow that the eagles sometimes use as a perch. The light breeze slips through and under the long foliage and with the shade it provides it is quite a pleasant spot.
