Good 65º clear sunny morning.
Yesterday the clouds moved in and it looked like rain on the way, but they spread out and no rain. It did keep it a tad cooler with the clouds blocking the sun.
The heat yesterday was at 73º at 9am. By noon it was 90º. And by 4:30 it was 103º.
The White House is one of the most iconic buildings in the world. Every U.S. president since John Adams has called the White House home during his administration. Congress named the White House as an American national museum in the 1960s, preserving its antiquities for coming generations. To maintain the White House in good condition requires constant upkeep. To cover the president's home with a new coat of paint requires 570 gallons of paint. The White House interior includes 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms, 147 windows, 28 fireplaces, 412 doors, 8 staircases and 3 elevators. Source: WhiteHouse.gov
