All you have to do is stick your head outside and yes, we are in for a scorcher today.

The temperature in mid Michigan today will be in the low to mid 90's, and just to kick things up a notch, we have a heat advisory that goes into effect at 1pm this afternoon.

I will admit right now, I am not a huge ice cream fan, but for some reason when the temperature gets this high ice cream sounds like the perfect thing to eat.

Soft ice cream from Dairy Queen or Sweet Sensations ....delicious, or if you want scoop ice cream, the MSU Dairy has the most delicious ice cream.  It was so warm yesterday that (and I never do this) I stopped into my neighbourhood Kroger and got a box of Hagen Doz  Ice cream bars....It was all I could do not to eat the entire box.

My advice for surviving this heat wave...if you don't have a pool this might be a good time to meet the neighbour down the street who has one.  If that does not work, stay cool, hit the mall, a movie theatre or places like that. also keep hydrated and keep plenty of ice cream on hand or in your belly.
