It's hot! Really, really hot - in the 80's, getting into the 90's. There are some good beaches in Madison (although they are sometimes closed due to too much bacteria in the lakes) and a great public swimming pool but in my neighborhood we head over to the east side YMCA to the JackSplash. I think it's just meant for children but in this heatwave you see plenty of grown ups running through the sprinklers, and why not??
