Although the temperature hit 100 again today, it looks like the heat wave may be over. It's about time! Tomorrow I will visit Mom again. Since Randy needs the car, I'll take an Amtrak train-and-bus combination to Washington, where I can borrow a car from one of my sisters. I have a 4 1/2 hour layover in Bloomington, but that can't be helped; I'm taking books and snacks and will just make the best of it. Mom does not mess around with technology like computers, so I will be "unplugged" for a few days.
