The heat is on
1. Not long after you've driven your new car off the lot, it will rain.
2. When you buy a hot dog at a ballgame, it will be lukewarm.
3. On the hottest days of the year, the air conditioning will go on the fritz at the Freeman building.
Yes, it's a scorcher today. And yes, the air conditioning conked out -- one unit apparently due to a lightning strike, the other as a result of an oil leak.
The AC units are old. When they work -- which is most of the time -- they're great. When they don't, they're not.
So we're dimming the lights and buying more fans. Other contingencies are in place if the AC can't be fixed. But the repairmen tell us the main unit, which covers most of the first floor, should be up and running shortly. Then they'll take a look at the other unit, which covers the pressroom.
As always, we'll publish a newspaper. But this one may take a little more sweat than usual.
I'll keep you posted.
