It was rough - rougher than I remember. Ya know, I wouldn't have brought an inhaler with me unless I didn't wanna have a bad situation go worse with an asthma attack where I couldn't get to anything. But - if there were anything that could quell that heat and make it bareable to have stayed out in the heat? I mighta thought of it. I SO wanted to be outside. 100 degrees in TX when I left Ohio didn't sound as rough than when I was in it and it was reaching 104...sigh...too darned hot. My girlfriend and I were thinking about designing lady's parasols with a built in wet/spray mister attachment...might be cool!
