Big News In Forsyth County

I think the person who writes the headlines for the Forsyth County News is either very naive or has a great sense of humor.

It’s hard to write or think about anything other than how hot it is — oh here’s a different topic — how will I ever pay my electricity bill? It is going to be sky high. But it will be worth it. I’m reading on Facebook the posts of a couple of people who don’t have A/C and I can’t imagine how they can get through this crap. I remember my mom telling me of one summer when it was this kind of heat, sometime during the 30s, and of course no one had air conditioning — the entire family slept in the cellar because it was the coolest place in the house. And we didn’t have A/C when I was growing up. I remember waving a window fan in my bedroom that would blow right on me and I survived. I guess I’ve become a wussy, which rhymes with “cat,” which brings us back to the headline of the Forsyth County News.

Keep cool.
