I remember back when I lived in a dorm at UCLA. The temperature was over 100F. A girl from New York City wouldn't believe us at first. She thought it felt like 80F.

Yep, the humidity, or lack of it, makes all the difference doesn't it?

In the winter I keep a large pot of water on the back burner on the lowest setting. It increases the humidity without having to push up the thermostat. Because of the humidity, it feels much warmer in the apartment. I know, I don't have to pay for my heat. But why be wasteful if I don't have to be.

Are your windows still open with the a/c on?

Yeah. But I haven't been running the A/C. I am on two blood thinners and feel very comfortable if the temp in my apartment is 80F. For others, I have a floor fan. I let it blow on them and not me. I am not too fond of the A/C.

105F. "Feels like" 100. Not too terribly bad.

It's about 88 outside right now and it's 79 in the house right now. We have a brick house and it takes soo long to cool the house.

On to good news - Mom's home from the hospital and sleeping comfortably in her own bed.

Teddy is terrified of thunder. Last night during the storm he came up on my bed and went under the blanket and then cuddled up right next to me. He kept nudging my arm. I finally figured out that he want me to hold him. So I pulled him right next to me and held him for dear life. He was shaking so bad. The storm passed over, no more thunder. But he continued to shake and wouldn't leave my side. When it came time for him to go home, he refused to come out from under the blanket. But the shaking had slowed down. I felt so bad for him. Spike had a terrible time trying to get his leash on. Teddy kept nipping at his hand trying to stop him and I still had my arm around him. So I finally pulled the blanket back and let him go. Her gave me a look of "How could you betray me like that?" Teddy refused to jump down from my bed, so Spike had to pick him up.

I just heard some thunder in the distance. I can't help but wonder how Teddy is doing. Our temp is 77F. and the wind is picking up. Looks like another storm is on the way.

Poor Teddy, hope you don't get a storm.

88 here at noon, feels like 95 and rising....
