Chiefland City Commissioner Rollin Hudson says the hottest day in Chiefland is always city election day.
I prefer to think there are three equally hot days: Chiefland High School graduation day, city election day and Watermelon Festival day.
It was no exception this year as I worked at the Citizen booth and stood in the heat for an hour as the annual festival parade rolled by. I was delirious for a shower.
As I left Chiefland at about 1 p.m. I called home. "No shower," the Carnivore said. "Something's wrong with the well."
