Res firma mitescere nescit.

Mother Road rapidly approaches, friends. The heat continues, but the whining has to stop. It is go time. Train or get owned in three months. Weekend mornings that begin at 3:30 am with hours of endless running are now the status quo.

Sunday was the 9th straight 100 degree day.

And meteorologists report that the heat wave is likely to continue for another 9 days. That's a total of 18 consecutive days of triple digit temperatures.

I am ready to quit.

Smelting.

Yes, smelting. That's what it feels like these days. I know everyone in Texas is coping with the heat, but that won't stop me from complaining. It is yet again going to hit in excess of 100 degrees. We are talking stupid hot. No, not just stupid. Stoopid. The pavement is on fire. And it shows no signs of abatement. Triple digit temperatures. Every. Single. Day. Stick a fork in me. I am done.
