Maxwell Street Daze

Maxwell Street Daze Maxwell Street Days on State Street -- what it feels like. It's always hot and there are always lots of people, and after awhile in the hot sun, they all sort of blur together. (6-exposure photo mosaic, with iPhone and Autostitch.)

Monday Morning Mommy Mob

Mommy Mob
Yesterday morning on Edgewood Drive -- while most of Madison cowered indoors from the heat, an exercise group of intrepid moms braved the scorching heat to meet with their trainer and exercise in the (relatively) cool morning shade in the woods behind Edgewood.

Think of each one as a 100-watt light bulb, and not the energy saving ones either

Think of Each One As a 100-Watt Light Bulb and Not the Energy Saving Ones Either

Although we've had a much warmer -- and drier -- summer than usual, it's always hot during the Art Fair on the Square. Mid-nineties temps are nothing unusual during this mid-July weekend in Madison. Something about the cognitive state associated with spending an hour or two in the hot sun walking the burning pavement and hovering on the verge of heat stroke seems to make people prone to buying art, since this is one of the country's larger and more financially successful art fairs. It's already hot out there, but each human being radiates about as much heat as a 100-watt light bulb. When they're packed in close together, that adds up.

Fox News was (half) right: We do have palm trees in Madison.

But only during the Art Fair on the Square, where there was an artist making huge palm tree and cactus sculptures.
