Well the way it feels out there now it should include OC. I'm 1/2 block off the ocean and it's a frying pan out there!

We were clear in the story, but thank you. We felt it was important to issue an advisory given that people stay in the sun near the shore.

Air conditioning is really a health issue, not merely a comfort one. It is patently ridiculous to hold classes in this type of heat. I understand the big ramifications of cancelling classes. If we only funded our schools. I don't mean only Brick, and I don't mean just the homeowners. If only our country thought enough of its students and teachers. We can build luxury hotels in Vegas and Atlantic City, but we can't keep our schools in order. Seems a misplaced value system.
