Archive for July 2011
The heat wave in the middle U.S. is now moving into the East. We had plans to take my son and a friend to ride rollercoasters at Dorney Park in Allentown, PA this Friday but the forecast is for 100F temperatures and heat indexes (what it feels like when adding in the humidity) likely reaching 110F. We must cancel because at these temperatures, it just is not safe for children to be out there waiting in lines. Sadly, last year in July we canceled a trip to Six Flags Great Adventure for the same reason: 100+ temperatures and high humidity.
Get used to the heat waves because they are going to become more frequent and more intense in the future.
