Is this real life?

It’s going to be sunny today with a high near 82 degrees, the National Weather Service says.

That’s outrageous.

The overnight low will be a still-pleasant 48 degrees, so I guess you can just not go home at all today — or Sunday, for that matter, when the forecast is just about the same.

Have fun out there! Wear sunscreen! Drink water! Call your mom!
