This entire past week has been, by far, the very hottest we've experienced since moving to VA from NY 12 years ago.
Temps have been well over 100 every single day, only dropping down to the mid-80's at night, & the heat indices have run between 110 & 115. It's downright brutal. Except for keeping plants & horses watered, & the dogs walked, I've done my level best not to step outside my air-conditioned little hovel.
The powers that be were originally predicting some relief - as in temps in the 80's - starting this weekend, but they've now rescinded that & have said the best we can expect is low to mid 90's. But I supposed after a week in the 100's, that's better than nothing. Right now there's at least a little air movement - somewhat what I expect the breezes on the Sahara feel like - & we "might" get a thunderstorm or two later - just enough to raise the humidity level up high enough so that it feels like one is breathing in a solid substance.
I can't wait for winter so I can switch my whining over to how cold it is - LOL!!!!!
