Swimming Pools Are Out Of Stock

I tried to help a friend of mine find an above-ground swimming pool, nothing big, for her backyard. I swear we hit every single store in Twin Falls before we finally came across one. ONE. It had to be the only one left in town.

You See Dogs In Shoes

If you see people walking their dogs during the day, you may notice that the dogs have shoes on. The concrete is so hot it can burn and peel the pads on dogs' feet. Side note, did you know that they make Crocs for dogs?

Hey, for those who enjoy rocking them, you rock! Keep it up. It is probably a great way to keep cool. But it is a sign it is hot when they are everywhere.

Everyone is eating outside at Elevation and Redhawk and Milner's Gate and wherever there are good patios. It is insanely hot but people still enjoy sitting outside and eating a good meal.
