Ds9's elementary school is closed today due to heat. The few elementary schools that have airconditioning, as well as all the middle and high schools, are open. It's supposed to be a humid 95 today, and when they made the decision yesterday it was forecasting 98. We live in the Chicago area and it's the first time I can ever remember this happening (ds21 went to this same elementary school, so we've been here a while!).

I don't mind. Ds9 isn't feeling great due to allergies and this gives him a break, but unfortunately, they are also off Monday and Tuesday, so it's a very long break! Luckily, ds11 is easy going and didn't seem to mind at all that his brother stayed home.

We haven't but then we live in AL so heat is just a way of life :) I know for us a nice cool down is coming Tuesday (as soon as this trocial storm makes its way north to us and gets out of town) and we are supposed to be in the 50's for lows w/ highs in the 70's. I hope the same cool down is coming your way :)
