I stopped by Philbrook on Wednesday to check on "my" garden. We had a little rain late Tuesday and it was cooler (90F) in the early afternoon when I decided to go. Of course I dawdled on my way through the Art Museum to see a few new items. By the time I got down to the pond the temperature had climbed back up to pizza oven level and I didn't stay very long. It was 4:00 PM when I took this photo looking to the southwest just under the afternoon sun which back lit everything. On the way home the temperature was back up to 104F.
Today (Friday) Sue and I drove to a couple of big furniture stores to shop for a chair. It seemed really hot, even more than usual. My Toyota Sienna van has a temperature readout on a panel near the top of the windshield. It said 108F as we were driving home and it felt like every bit of that. We are setting new records almost every day.
