Been hot as the Hinges of Hell here the last week or so and, at least until Tuesday, our "feels like" temps will be in the triple digits. 104F yesterday, with today's prediction to be 110F. Tomorrow not much better. The humidity is ridiculous. You can see it hanging in the air. Around here it's called "air you can wear" and that's more than accurate. Dangerous. No rain predicted to break the streak.

I want to go out and harvest vegetables but it's too hot. I guess I'll wait till 8 pm when the heat index drops to 96F

It didn't quite make it, but it sure tried to get up to 90F. today. Only made it to 89F.

I hope they are right when they say that this is the weekend that feels the hottest for this summer. 28C ≈ 82F and 38C ≈ 100F.

It should be date night, but we'll see how that thunder storm plays out.

Even though I have the AC on, (just barely) I went over to open the window slightly. OMG, the heat coming in is incredible. I got dressed to go to the store. I am not sure I even need to go now. It is that heavy heated hot air that takes your breath away. I am so glad I keep an inhaler on my scooter all the time. Because I feel that I am going to need it. I wanted Summer weather and now I have it. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. Well, I did, in spades!

I don't know why, but every time there are storms in my area, they miss Eastie completely. They just go north or south of us.

Don't worry, Addie. We had it covered out here in the frontier. It was a Triple-H day: Hazy, Hot, and Humid. Ugh! Come ON Wednesday. 82 looks refreshing right now! Unfortunately, anything beyond 24 hours (sometimes less) is mere speculation and conjecture.

humid, so very humid. When it's in the 90's and we have a rain shower that doesn't cool things down, it's miserable! Luckily it's down in the 80's now. These are days that it's just more comfortable to stay inside where it's cool.
