Heat Wave....

TROUBLE IN THE TAROT by Kari Lee Townsend
Detective Mitch Stone's rant!

I can't stand the heat. Don't get me wrong, I like summer well enough, but this heat is killing me. And I'm not the only one. Whenever we have this much heat and humidity, the people in Divinity get ornery.

And ornery people cause all sorts of trouble.

Like the other day I had to I had to break up an argument at a kid's summer soccer tournament. Parents get riled up enough when their kids are competing against rival teams. Add in crazy hot temperatures, and tempers flare much quicker.

And when the air conditioner broke at Smokey Joe's, more than one barroom brawl broke out.

Then there's Sunny. She just smiles and is all nice and bubbly, going on about her day as though it doesn't feel like 100 degrees out! I have to admit that makes me a little crazy.

So if you're reading this, please do us all a favor and stay inside when it's this hot out there. Turn on your AC, read a good book, and pray for a thunderstorm to break the humidity and make life return to normal.

I'm begging you.

In the meantime, I'm back on duty. Something tells me this latest heat wave is gonna be a killer...


  1. We're experiencing a heat wave in South Dakota. We had a brief shower at 4 am. We may pray for a thunderstorm to break the humidity but we don't need any severe thunderstorms with hail, tornadoes and high winds that cause such horrible damage at times. Stay cool.

  2. We're all holding our breath waiting for the entire power grid for the eastern end of the country to blow (all those A/Cs on at once). Does crime go up along with the temperature?

  3. I agree, Mitch. Why is it that some people think they can get back at the heat by bashing into things with their *cars*?????

  4. I get ornery in the heat too! I don't know how I lived in Texas all those years. Now I'm back in WNY, but it's been HOT!!! Thank God for central air!

  5. Very hot in Delaware. No worries though. Staying in with the A/C cranked. Becare to all those who have to be out!

  6. For everybody's sake, I am staying inside with the AC on this week. I'm very thankful our power grid has been holding up so far.

  7. It is hot here in Holland too, so reading is the best thing to do. Just sit still and ignore the heat outside.
