Is This Normal?

Tomorrow's heat index could be 110°. The Post is reporting today that this may be part of a new normal: when you keep having above-average temperatures every year, the average starts shifting upward.

Here's what they show for this year. Ah, remember that deliciously comfortable weekend of June 16-17?

What are your strategies for getting outdoors in this weather?
