High of 97 here today. Ugh!

The good news is, I just looked at the 10 day forecast. It looks like we're supposed to be in the high 70's by early next week. Just gotta hope we don't melt before that!

OMG sooooooooo hot today (and for the past 3 days)! High 90s. I hate it when it comes on all of a sudden. I'm so glad it's Friday.

It seems when it's hot back east it's nice here but when it's hot here in the west it's nice back east.

So many from back east are talking about fall! I wish!

It looks like most all of us (here anyway) got hit with the heat early on.

I'm totally enjoying a break in the heat and can't complain.

I AM JUST GLAD THAT I LIVE IN WISCONSIN!!! I HATE HUMIDITY AND THE SWOLLEN ANKLES THAT GO WITH IT. TODAY WE ARE QUITE COOL AND I AM THANKFUL FOR THAT.

GRANDDAUGHTER IS GETTING MARRIED IN FLORIDA NEXT JANUARY BUT I EXPECT THAT HEAT WILL BE BETTER THAT TIME OF YEAR.

GOOD TO HEAR THAT YOU AGREE WITH ME DUSTY.

BUT MY SHORT TERM GOAL IS GETTING BELOW 300. I'VE LEARNED THAN LOSING 10% CAN IMPROVE HEALTH AND WELLNESS! Lynnsallee

Lol I had a waterbed once. One night I turned the temp the wrong
way and before the night was over I understood how a lobster
feels when it's being cooked. Of course it took forever to cool
down. Had to spend rest of night on couch.

It's hard to imagine how people lived before A/C and fans existed. I guess if you don't know about something you don't miss it? Or your body adapts?

LOL, slept on an old style waterbed once, it was hot and like 1 big water bag, so it made huge movement waves when you tried to move on it... kinda had to do a roll thingy to get out of it...

love ceiling fans above the bed with a drop pull I can reach up & turn on & off as needed... and little window fans to vent hot air out.... and AC! We are lucky to live with such gadgets...

3 more weeks, usually our hottest falls in the next 3 weeks. We get some in Sept but not usually as bad. Always think of Labor Day as beginning of fall... just need to make it 3 more weeks...

The weather has been great here but I know it's not over with.

Never heard of those Jules. Years ago I used to have a water bed and when the temp cooled off it got really clammy and felt like the heat was getting sucked out of my body. Hated the feeling. Probably just my bed though:)

our electric hits near $200 in the summer with AC and dead winter with heat. Way too high... I can always add more clothes in the winter but summer, ay yi yi!!!

Anyone see those new hot/cold mattress toppers? they pump in cool or warm air, kinda like the systems used in the hospital... Got a brochure for one, thought ooh, ooh, that would be Sparktacular!!! Freaking $1600 for a king... I can make a lot of ice and hot packs for pennies... (sighs) oh well, it would have been nice.... lol

I've always liked sleeping with a comforter and this summer just a sheet and that's helping but it's hard to get used to.

Yowzaaaaaaaaaaaa it's HOT!

I got my new Nook last week and I downloaded a Rain Live Wallpaper. It's a photo (one of them) of a pretty field and trees but with dark clouds and it's RAINING! Rain on the screen!

I can set the sound, amount of rain and scene. Yes I know! Desperate times calls for desperate measures, LOL!

I'll also confess, I'm not proud, that at night I have my A/C running and electric fireplace flames going.

Okay now...the temps here are getting really hot! And combine that with humidity levels around 88%, and it's just miserable outside after a couple of minutes.

@NUWALK: yes, the days are getting shorter. Even though this is true, the Northern Hemisphere (where we live) is also tilting towards the Sun, as it always does, which makes for the hotter but shorter days. emoticon

OMG, I don't want to see the utility bills for this summer! We're going hot again... urgh!!!

The days are getting shorter and the days are getting hotter. Does that strike anyone else as just wrong? Figure if they're getting shorter, s/b cooler too! LOL

Yes, that combination does sound like dynamite! But I'm sure the girls you took will remember it (and you:) always!


It's been cooler here the last couple of days probably because it's been cloudy. I even saw a few sprinkles on my deck this morning:)

I finally found something I could contribute on this thread - without pissing everyone else off who hates the heat. Picture this:

Hershey Park - 95+ degrees with 100% humidity. 4th of July weekend. Hershey park was more crowded than normal because there is a One Direction concert being held at the Hershey Park Stadium at 7:30 PM. Hershey Park overs a discount to anyone holding concert tickets. One Direction is a boy band from the UK.
did I mention that I had 3 of the 30,000 screaming teenage girls at the concert. So we spent all day at the park, followed by all night at the concert. The concert went from 7:30 pm to 11:00 pm, and it cooled down to 88 by the time it was over. I stayed with my Mom - an hour from Hershey. We got up at 6:00 am. It took me 2 hours to get 3 teenagers out the freaking door. We got back to my Mom's at 2:30 am the next day, due to the traffic letting out of Hershey Park.
I was deaf, hot and cranky. The girls fell asleep before I pulled out of the parking lot. So, just a basic spin through hell. emoticon

I live in Oklahoma. After last week's temps in the 80's, I thought maybe we would have a nice cool summer for a change. No such luck. Back to the upper 90's this week. Still much better than last summer though when the state of Oklahoma averaged the hottest average high temp. for the month of July for any state ever. emoticon

Havent' shut the a/c off in 2 weeks now. Yesterday my home weather station registered in at 115.8 and today 106.4. No change in the next week or so but, I must admit that although the humidity gets to me it is sure far better than icy roads. Our average temp for this time of year is normally around 82.

Here in Arkansas, we've gotten a break from the normal late June/early July heat...with daily temps in the 80s and low temps in the 50s and low 60s! emoticon But each day now, the temps are creeping upwards to more more normal July heat.

The humidity yesterday was only 28% but this morning I noticed it is now 81%! Wow....

Just the other day I was cleaning the house, Air-conditioning was set for 77, an during dusting an running the vacuum, I was sweating so bad, I continued on to doing the dishes, an I could feel the sweat running down my neck, emoticon Eww, but I sure made a bee-line to the pool when I was done for a refreshing dip. It was 121* outside, but the water did feel good. emoticon

Got the lawn mowed :) Thanks for worrying about me Dusty, but I didn't melt thankfully. Shower was great after, and tracking that exercise sure made my day :D
