We’ve got a heat index of 107 today. The air is almost too hot to breath at this point. Simple tasks like getting the mail and watering the struggling plants become reasons to take another shower. Yet somehow, the Community Market is packed, the patios are full in the evenings and new Rotary clubs are still getting formed. We suppose it’s true what they say, if you can’t stand the heat, get your ass out of Denton. We’ve heard Colorado is nice right now. If you can stand the heat, be relieved, there is a cool front coming our way over the weekend and maybe we’ll hit a high of only 89 on Saturday and see some rain. Summer may be over, but the future creators of our city are just getting started. Hashtag your photo’s #WDDI and show us what you’re up to.
