The Heat is on
It official, the Heat is On. Today was the start of “monsoon” season…but no rain. Just hot.
To document the occasion I got my first burn. Nope not a sunburn. Got my body covered with all the right levels of sunscreen by the way how in 10 years have we gone from 15SPF to 100SPF?
Ok back to my burn. I burned my hand on the garage door. Now here is the interesting part- it wasn’t t the outside exposed to the intense sun- it was the inside of the door.
I had just collected all the trash around the house and was taking it out for the night. I watched into the sauna, whoops sorry the garage, and open the door. As I go to unlatch the screen-door my thumb gets burned. Hot, hot, hot. Now the screen-door is metal and black and after further investigation I believe the sun hits that latch- but WOW. It was hot, but I didn’t realize it would leave a mark. It did.
As I walked to the mailbox, enduring the 105 degrees, getting a little sticky – enough to make me think maybe I would get in the pool and scrub the tiles tonight. Just an excuse to cool off from my 15min walk outside. As I am walking back I notice my the big red spot on my thumb. Yep- my first burn. The first of many I imagine. Have decided the pool can wait till tomorrow- after a good hard run. That is if my bum ankle and burned thumb don’t keep me down…is it just Tuesday??? At this rate, with an incident a day, I might want to re-think the Grand Canyon hike.
