A portion of a pond in Prospect Park is fenced off, so dogs can swim and cool off from the heat. There is usually a crowd of people nearby, watching and playing fetch. In other parts of the pond are ducks and turtles.
It's been swelteringly humid here in New York, for the last week. Threats of rain and showers large and small have done nothing to cool us off. As a result, people are cranking their air conditioners, causing electrical shortages.
The subway platforms alone are insane. The air conditioners for the subway cars create an enormous amount of heat. Ugh. Most people look pretty terrible by they time they get to the office.
At least the parks provide some relief. Rupert swam a bit this weekend and now smells like pond! Egad!
Our Boston Terrier, Rupert, was up to his elbows in pond water, with friends.
