I walked to the supermarket at sunset. It was summer weather. I don't think I broke a sweat until the return trip with groceries in the backpack. The ice cream didn't melt. The heat was worse over by the market where there's just street & parking lot & no grass. Strategizing around a few days of hot weather isn't that difficult. It's the week long scorchers Jersey gets in July that make everyone crazy. I would not want to have been on Route 35 when the Morgan Creek drawbridge got stuck open today. A lot of those people were coming back from Sandy Hook & cursing themselves, or being cursed by their families, for not getting on the Parkway at Keyport & paying the damned tolls. There's a little beach at Morgan, & nice views, but the baywater there is of questionable quality.
