The temps are forecast to go up to 91 (F) today and continue to slowly climb into the upper 90's by Sunday and Monday. But, if Accuweather has any validity, theyll be coming down to the mid 80's after that. Not a lot of rain in the forecast, but this is our dry season.
The RNC is evidently seriously looking at outdoor venues in Jacsonville since they are no expected to to try and move their entire convention outside. According Weatherspark, summers in Jacksonville are long, hot, and oppressive. Ain't no AC outside. Those attending the convention are going to be sweating like pigs... though to be perfectly honest, I don't think pigs sweat... much. I checked. They don't... much. Sweating like pigs has more to do with pig iron cooling. This doesn't mean those convention goers aren't pigs, they're just not going to sweat that much, they will need a sty to wallow in... I guess that's one good reason to move the convention outside... now all they have to do is find a pig sty large enough.
True to form, the Idiot Jerk in the White House has claimed more white people die at the hands of police than black people. However, any imbecile who looks at the ratio of white people to black people knows he's wrong. Of course, this was directed at his white supremacist base. There's a little video that comes with that link. If you watch it, you'll see he's sweating like a pig... oh, that's right, pigs don't sweat.
I rode through Rome yesterday, almost 20 miles. I got to see the Colosseum from both sides. There were not a lot of tourists because the ride was filmed on a Sunday morning. The last three miles are a time trial up the Tiber. It's not as wide as I thought it would be. Oh, and I did hit my Trek Challenge goal of 100 miles. That doesn't mean I'm going to stop riding.
And finally, here a shot of my 3 little angels.
They're about the size of a quarter and eat like little piggies.
