Urban Heat Island

This summer-like weather has taken me by surprise. While it’s wonderful to have the windows open in the house, to dispel the stale, stinky winter air, I’m not used to wearing my Chacos yet. If the straps aren’t adjusted properly there can be dire consequences. During my morning drive the big toe on my right [...]
