And a cool morning to all of you!
As you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here. We care!
A cold front came through yesterday afternoon, bringing rain and - get this - cooler weather! Lows in the upper 60's, highs in the low 90's. I turned my poor, overworked little window unit off and it was still cool enough to cook on the stovetop and to use the oven. It hasn't been cool enough to use the oven since May!
