Heat is the word across much of the country this week and we are feeling it right here right now too early.

The flashing sign across the street from Totally Kids fun furniture & toys announced 100F. at 6PM when we all headed home last night. Can you believe one of us actually rode her bicycle home in the heat. Kudos to our senior interior designer Angela, and her true dedication to going green!

Today in the Twin Cities there is an Excessive Heat Warning. There’s a 1 in 3 chance the mercury may hit 100 in the shade this afternoon. Factor in a dew point in the 70-75 range and it will feel like 100-105 by afternoon. On average the Twin Cities metro experiences about one 100-degree day every decade.

May we suggest a fun old fashioned way to stay cool? Attach this Grub Sprouts Sprinkler to your hose for the kiddies or whole family and let the cooling begin.

We hit 103F. hot hot hot hot. On average the Twin Cities metro experiences about one 100-degree day every decade.
