The Devil's Apple

At 3 p.m. today, the temperature topped out at 102 degrees in Central Park, breaking the record high of 101 degrees for the day set in 1999. The average high for July 6th is 83 degrees. Now the only record left to break is Con Ed's megawatts threshold... which, sadly, I can't assist with, since there's no AC in the living room. Call me a fool. A broiling, sweating, sopping wet fool.At least misery loves company. The northeast is far from alone.
