Too Hot!

Posted by Cyn | Posted in Kvetching | Posted on 08-06-2008


It's 90 degrees F outside now. It was 103 earlier. We're still in the first week of June. I have no idea what the "effective temperature" (or whatever they call it) is when the humidity is factored in.

Even with monthly filter changes and window units in both bedrooms, the air conditioner just can't keep up.

Unfortunately, I don't have any reason to think we'll be able to move to points north before we find out what it's going to be like here in July and August.


Aren't there any Canadians who want to adopt a nice family of three?

Oh, I thought it was only 95 when I was out stain­ing the deck. ;p Of course, that’s why I gave up and wait­ed until the evening. I think I’ll do the same tomorrow. 🙂

Thanks, Wil­low!

Alice, I looked at Accuweath­er right after post­ing. It said the cur­rent temp was 92 and the “Feel­s­Like™” temp was 101! Yeah, I think you’d best do that project in the ear­ly morn­ings and lat­er in the evening to avoid sunstroke.

I’ve been keep­ing a bot­tle of water and it’s in the shade in the evenings. In the morn­ings it’s in full sun and also I have to wait until 11am for the dew to burn off for it to be ful­ly dry so that defeats the pur­pose. 🙂 That’s why I wait­ed until evening. I was much more com­fort­able doing it this evening from 6pm until 8pm than from 10am-2pm this morning.

I don’t know what the heat index was today, but my ther­mome­ter read 103 degrees out by the pool. 

**send­ing cool thoughts**

It’s 49 here now. Was as high as 58 in the after­noon, but cooled down.

I’m not sure we’re *get­ting* a sum­mer… just an extend­ed spring.

I wish I could send you some coolth…

I am SO envious!

It’s 103 here, with a “realfeel” of 112.

I won­der where this weath­er sta­tion is that’s get­ting this read­ing? Is it in the mid­dle of a park­ing lot with no trees? ;p Weath​er​.com is say­ing 97 with a “feels like” of 97. Even Accuweath​er​.com says 30360 has a report­ing 96, with “Real Feel” of 99.

The ther­mome­ter on our front porch says 105 now. It’s under the porch roof, so there’s a lit­tle shade.

Hmmm, mine says 94.
