Listen to the weather

Today is looking to be a clear and hot day. 

National weather service says, “Temperatures will be warmer today, but overall it will be a “down day.””

It will be a good day to kick back with a Shirley Temple drink — a drink I grew up with.

 According to Time magazine, Shirley Temple was out in a restaurant with her parents and was annoyed that she couldn’t drink the Old-fashioneds they were drinking. So the waitstaff came up with a non-alcoholic version for her. To this day you can order or make a Shirley Temple. And it is a great cool off on a hot day.

See the recipe below.


Here’s the look ahead for today:

It will be sunny and clear. The high will be near 90 and the low will be around 64.

Have a good Thursday!
