Congratulations! Area Con Ed users yesterday drew 11,937 megawatt hours of electricity, setting the record for the year. Remember the service number: 1-800-75-CONED. You may need it.
It will be hot again today. Cooling centers remain open. The heat advisory remains in effect. Prepare yourself also for silly heat-related stories (“Yow! New York City’s Hottest Day All Summer!” “Across the City, It’s (Finally) Too Darn Hot,” etc). These may have a soporific effect.
