For the weekend: Hot, hot, hot ...

Highs close to 100, heat indices approaching 110.  Air quality, seriously crappy.

So we stay inside and nudge the AC up so it'll be at least moderately comfortable.

Ameren/UE's poorly maintained system groans loudly under the extra load, gives it up and suddenly thousands are left in the lurch with no electric and no AC.

I know they had hundreds of fix-it guys standing by during the last round of severe thunderstorms...I hope they have their schedules set up the same way, 'cause this weekend's gonna be a killer.
