YES!!!!
however, this is day 3 that there's been some overcasting. Humidity is still disgusting! My poor doggie hates it too, and even when she's only out to "get busy", she comes in smelling like a dog! Darn humidity! I got her some lovely almond vanilla spray, though, and it works like a charm.


I want it to rain and be 53 degrees for the next month.

Yep, us too, although I'm actually enjoying it. Reminds me of Dallas and San Antonio.

We had it out here last week. Much nicer now, so I expect that cooler weather will make it your way soon.

Yep, its just starting to get humid again here. Tomorrow should be the worst day, around 100 with the heat index, and then the dreaded humidity. I've just closed all my windows to keep the house cooler. I only need a fan at the moment but that will soon change back to the AC once again. My poor dog hates this weather too.

Cool thoughts:

ice cubes on your back
sticking your head in the freezer, ahhhhh
A cold adult beverage
A Noreaster

Currently 95 degrees here, heat index 101. Nice and sticky, perfect for swimming.

Think cool thoughts:
Walk-in refrigerator
Walk-in freezer
Supersoakers, fully loaded, placed in refrigerators to get good and cold
water balloons, also placed in refrigerators
winning a game, and having a cooler full of ice water dumped over you
