Keen Observations on Life … Whether You Need Them or Not

Marking this Hot Occasion


Since we just broke a 59-year old temperature record here in the wilds of central North Carolina–in the sleepy little town of Apex, to be exact–I thought that perhaps I should mark the occasion. Just about five minutes ago, temperatures reached 105.4⁰F, with a heat index of 116⁰F. Can you believe that?

I laughed at my son, who quoted my favorite Matthew Broderick line from
Biloxi Blues, “It’s hot … it’s Africa hot.”

“Now,” I said to him with complete sincerity, “we can say that it’s ‘Apex hot’.”

Writer, mother, wife, adventurer, agent of change, advocate, ally, volunteer, instructor ... I'm never bored. I write contemporary romance and romantic suspense under the name Becky Moore, and children’s literature under the name Dolly Dozier. You can also check me out at MacMillan Publishing’s Heroes & Heartbreakers, where I’m a romance blogger. During the fall and spring, you can find me in the classroom teaching other folks how to follow their dreams or how to fund their community outreach at Wake Technical Community College, and Central Carolina Community College. During the summer and at random times during the year, I'm out adventuring with my family.

  1. I know. The breeze sort of makes it worse, to a certain degree.

  2. Yup! Went out to Wal-Mart at 3pm and hubby noted that the breeze was stifling and did absolutely nothing to help with the heat!
