I have no title for this post

Not much time this morning- so this will be brief. We'll try for a more complete post tonight.

First - Temperature discussion-

I would love to know what Internet weather site give the "feels like" temperature. If for no other reason than to know that I am not crazy. Many times the temp gauge on the blog will have Port au Prince at about 93 degrees. 93? There is nothing so impressive about a measly 93 degrees. This is not the full picture. The good folks at Accuweather neglect to tell you it is the kind of 93 that feels a lot like some really big man with thick hands is holding a hot, wet rag over your mouth and you cannot fill your lungs with air even if you really work at it. If you wish to walk from one end of your house to the other you will need to use your arms to claw your way through the dense air. A "feels like" temperature will help us all feel more justified in our sweat-drenched, oxygen deficient, July crankiness.

The humidity is so stifling at times, it is almost like you're on a small island, surrounded completely by water, close to the equator.

Second- Have you ever been flipped off by a rat?

I believe we just were.
