#6764: Well, that escalated quickly

Mrs. Fungus and I had been in the pool for a couple of hours, just enjoying our little swimming pool on a very hot summer day. She got out, as a first step towards us doing something about dinner, so then I figured I might as well, too; but we ended up lounging in our gravity chairs and doing nothing but enjoying the day--and then to the north we saw clouds massing.

Forecast for tomorrow is 77°. I guess the heat wave is over.
