Heat Wave anyone?

I know there have been sereral topics on this lately. Just wanted to check in to see how everyone is doing. From East to West coast it's been brutal. The only exception I saw today was Washington State. So how is everyone holding up? Oh and brace yourself Floridians for tropical storm Chris! I hope everyone has some way to keep cool. I have one AC in my house thankfully. My sister had temps of 105 in Connecticut, and I know Boston was very hot, as well as NY, and DC, Probably PA as well.

I stayed inside, pulled the blinds and shut the windows, and used fans, and one AC. We just had some rain, so hopefully that cool air mass is moving in tonight.

Wow, talk about karma, my computer just shut down because of lightening, yes I have a surge protector! That was freaky though.

Yep, we are fine here. It was a great day. The sky was blue with just a few fluffy white clouds.

I really hope it cools down for the rest of you.

After a week of hellish temperatures (I'm talking actual 119 degrees in parts of L.A., none of this "heat index" stuff), with unseasonably high humidity, it's been nice for several days. That bodes well for the rest of the county -- it should be better soon. In the meantime, maybe this will help you cool off, at least mentally -- let yourself drift away on Pacific breezes:

We had a heat index of 113 that will end within a few hours. What a relief that will be.

I'm about 90 miles east of Philadelphia and it is hot here. I work in a deli part time and we are incredibly busy with the prepared foods.
