yeah but it's a dry heat.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Actually that prius has some kind of sunroof tech that enables sunlight to help cool the car.

When the car is parked, the solar powered sunroof ventilates the car and keeps it cool.

Wouldn't be so bad if people knew how to merge, or how to pull over and out of traffic when they rear end someone at 2 mph. (reference 355N to 88W, and Leask Ave)

It is far better to be thought of as a smartass than an dumbass. And as American Humorist Robert Benchley (1889-1945) noted, "no matter how well-intended, any reply to a dumbass question will inevitably appear smartassed". - Bob Hall (creator of the Miata)

Seriously...what a bunch of sallys everyone has become. Just got back from 20 miles on the MTB this evening. There were a few other people out on the trails. Honestly, it reminded me of what the neighborhood looks like activity-wise when it's 6 deg out. Everyone hunkered down inside...wasting their summer away.
