A “Better” Person

Got up this morning and my phone weather app said it was 71ºF at 7:30 am.  That’s not with the humidity factored in – do that, and it was allegedly 80ºF. At 7:30 am! The day hasn’t even started yet and it’s already burning me up. Of course, Accuweather is predicting rain, but it’s clear…
