Day after the storm

It's one day after the nasty storm rearranged parts of the neighborhood. Cleanup crews are noisily setting things to right. And the heat is suffocating. One thermometer reads over 100 in the sun and the other is over 80 in the shade (42 and 28 Celcius, respectively)! There was no walk with Granddog Ellie this afternoon. We walked in the morning and I got a few shots. Even though Ellie was grumpy and wouldn't visit nice with anyone. She's like that when I'm ailing, and I guess I am. Heat does make me unwell. But the morning was cooler, and a large, floppy hat eases things a bit. Almost all shots are in the shade, so colors are somewhat muted.
