There isn't much to say about dealing with the heat. Drink lots of water, bring sunscreen, wear light clothing and minimize what you do outside and you'll be fine. The institute's agenda takes care of most of that. Your hotel is a short walk from the school, and it's rare that you'll need to walk more than a couple of blocks outside during the heat of the day.
A couple of other notes:
- I've been out of town for a week on a family vacation (I put an audio slideshow below in case you'd like to see my take of the seventh-inning stretch at Wrigley Field), so I'll be catching up on e-mails today and tomorrow. Thanks for your story ideas so far.
- Thanks for the blog posts. These are great. One style note: Please use the sign-off mentioned in the syllabus for both posts and comments. My take is the sign-off from your Google account doesn't contain enough information for visitors to know who is talking.
