I rarely get up before dawn, and even then I don't usually venture outside. But during this week's heat wave, even with air-conditioning the house seemed stuffy. We northern Midwesterners complain about the cold winters, but can't seem to tolerate the hot, humid summers, either. Tough crowd!
The other morning, I decided to get up early and see if it was any cooler outside. It actually was (although not by much.) I was greeted by these fluffy cotton candy clouds reflecting the rising sun.
