The 2 Things Challenge this week is: Local/Hot.
Whether you think global warming is a man-made phenomenon and is dooming civilization unless we change our ways, or you think what's happening is a part of a naturally driven cycle and there isn't much man can do about it, doesn't much matter when the local temperature in the parking lot is 114F. In Alabama that's HOT.
