Too hot today!

Ok I'm whining, sorry. I just cannot tolerate 90 degree heat this early in the year. I can go outside for maybe 5 minutes at a time to plant my vegetable seedlings and then have to go back inside to cool down. My poor dog (black lab) is miserable in this heat. Better ask my hubby to bring our air conditioner down from the attic and get it going when he gets home. Anyone else having a tough time with the heat?

I have never liked the heat - Our air has been on for two days and its only 77 right now. 90 would make me stay in and never go out - lol !!
Humidity keeps me in too ! Whew !

My feelings exactly. I was born without sweat glands, so the heat is very hard on me.

Same here Barb L the humidity keeps me indoors. Had to close all my windows and blinds to keep the heat and humidity out today. Oh and my hubby fell asleep soon after dinner because he's been working so hard lately, so I didnt dare wake him to ask about the AC, so I have a fan on in here and waiting for the sun to set lol.

jp, my ideal temp is around 75 degrees and dry!

mudbug, it is pretty odd that we have temps this high and this early in the year. We set a record today. Last record was I think 88 degrees in the 1930's so they said on the weather report tonight.

Half baked and texasgirl, brrrr 70's and 80's, you guys must be cold down there lol

JoAnn, I rather enjoy that temperature range too, but I needed some warmth after all the rain last week, but man this 90 degrees is just too much for me, plus the humidity.

Luckily it should be 80 tomorrow, wow it's cooling down tomorrow lol, and then back to the normal of 60-70 for this time of year.
