hottest day on record!!!

well just thought i would vent alittle, since any sort of vent right now only allows ungodly amounts of heat in. it hit 113 degrees today in Los Angeles and thats the hottest day on record sicne they began recording the temperatures back in 1877. last record was 112 sometime in august back in 1990.
