Elizabeth Wentworth Roberts, The Beach Afternoon

“Don’t hug me, it’s too hot” was the greeting on Tuesday as a few friends met for lunch. Coffee and soda drinkers, we all drank water. Lots of water.

All beaches but one were closed to swimmers because a fog was so dense over Lake Michigan that lifeguards could not see swimmers in the water. A rather rare summer phenomenon as the cold lake water and superheated air met. For many, the Lake Michigan is the only place to get relief from the temperatures soaring close to 100°. I hope they open today.

One thing we are really good at here is talking about our problems. Often, our problems concern the weather. Too cold, too much snow, not enough snow, rain, no rain, winds. We do it well here. We do it really well on our radio talk stations.  Yesterday, one station I was listening to as I was running a bevy of errands before my hug free but delightful lunch, had listeners calling in with songs that had to do with heat. It was fun to listen to suggested songs and then to hear clips from them.

Here are a few. Do you have any “hot” songs?
