I checked the temperature in Golden before I jumped out of the air conditioning into the fire at 5:30 this afternoon.
By the time I reached home the moisture content of my body was about 4%.
Thankfully it was partly cloudy and the sun itself was not baking me directly.
Unthankfully there was a blistering headwind off of the eastern plains. Between the fire wind and the air so dry is sucked the moisture out of my very veins I felt like my skin was just going to crumble into dust and waft away.
The forecast for tomorrow? 2 gazillion degrees.
The upside of tomorrow is that I get to go pick up the tickets my wife won for me for the Avett Brothers concert at Red Rocks this coming Friday.

I just had an idea...
