Wow, sweltering hot indeed. We've had one of the coldest summers on record, but our fall started off scorching hot. It was bearable until shortly in the afternoon, but then the sun started beating down on the office. We're surrounded by an army of computers, so there's not much that can be done to keep things cool — aside from drink a lot of ice-cold beer. :)
Last night, we watched NCIS (hate the Los Angeles spin-off) and Bones, but with a multitiude of shows recording as we were watching, we fell even further behind. We're going to have to step it up!
