To quote the old adage that perfectly suits us here in Northwest Louisiana, "It's not the heat. It's the damn heat."

We officially entered into the Hades portion of summer and for the next several weeks, temperatures and the heat indexes will be dangerously high. Heat advisories will become nearly laughable, as most of us, after hearing that the National Weather Service has issued one, will think to ourselves, "Well, it didn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out."

If this is your first summer here in the Shreveport area, yes, I'm sorry, it does get like this every year. In fact, it's actually been pretty mild so far this year, so, in actuality, we're getting off a little light since it's just now hitting us.

With that in mind, I was thinking that maybe a little humor might help to get you through this staggering heat wave.
