Eastern Heatwave Heatwave toasting the eastern seaboard from southern New England to Carolinas continues. For a circus in NewJersey, today in Beachwood the high will be 97 degrees F. Heat index is much higher. The good news is that the heat will slack tomorrow, by about ten degrees. And temperatures will return to "normal" on Thursday with highs in the 70's and low 80's.

Heat, flooding in the upper midwest, tornadoes in the prairie states, a wild week at the tail end of spring. And yes, it is still spring. As bad as the weather has been for circuses since the first shows opened in March -- constantly dogged by storms, and winds, and high water, and mud -- it's been all that much worse for other folks. Cornfields in Indiana still planted, homes from Arkansas to Wisconsin literally drowned in four months of wet. But the heat shall pass, and the wet shall pass, the snows in Colorado finally melt, and it will be summer. Circuses will move on to tomorrow's town.
