Miserably hot here today. High of 90 something, not as humid as it was yesterday, just very hot. Kids back to school this week. Seems every year the kids go back to school temp.'s spike in the 90's. Argh! I am looking forward to Fall.

We are back to our normal August weather. Right now at 10 p.m. the temp is 74F. No humidity today, but it is on its way back. I have had the AC off for most of the day. I guess I will have to run it more tomorrow. Temps are supposed to go to the 90's. Oh joy! Something to look forward to.

We're having normal August weather, hot and humid--not sure what it was today--31C (with humidex probably 35-38C). Finally, TL can really test out her new AC unit.

Kylie--I lived where cars weren't sold without block heaters. I remember many a winter night getting up at 2:00 a.m. to run out and start the car, even though the cars were plugged in. When it is -40F and the wind is blowing from the north and the windchill makes it feel as if it is -55 / -60F, you would need to run out and start the car to be on the safe side. 0F in the winter would be a thaw! But it is a dry cold (as we liked to tell ourselves). Definitely those January nights were a reason to throw another dog on the bed.

Yeah, around here in winter, it gets surprisingly cold. As to vehicles, if you stop at a diner along the highway on a cold winter day, you will almost always see that the parked diesel trucks have their engines running. Even with block heaters, it takes a long time to get a diesel started when it's really cold.

The humidity was so thick today it felt like you could cut it with a knife! Miserably hot! Overcast as the day wore on, looks like rain but nothing yet.

81F. with a beautiful breeze. Went to look at the garden plots. The majority of our maintenance workers are of Latino descent. And they have planted most of the plots. And you can tell. Some have tomatilla plants, and every plot has some hot pepper plants. One even has those tiny, tiny red hot peppers. And of course cilantro. The first two years I was here, only a couple of the residents were planting. Then the plots remained empty for the past four years. So it is good to see them being put to use. The garden is in full sun all day. And the plants are growing so fast. Tomatoes are ready for picking. Perfect weather for gardening.
