Because of that noise, they are sometimes called "petits quatre moteurs (little four engines) here in Quebec.

After a few days of warm-enough temperatures and low humidity, a change, she is a'comin'. The humidity is creeping up already. Tonight's low will probably be the lowest all week, and that's no cooler than the mid-60s. Depending on which weather forecaster you believe, we're in for three to five days in the 90s and humid. Ugh. Besides that, lately the A/C is making a "different" noise. I'll be giving my A/C tech guy, Ken, a call in the morning. Need to get our name at the top of the list before the weather really pushes the temps.

Just as long as he doesn't drop trou to show off THOSE bites...

A lovely 90 plus right now, with a heat index of 101 F.

KaPow! *flash-flash* BoomBoomBoom

We're in the middle of a "please don't let the power go off" downpour. A good, old-fashioned, midwest frog strangler. So far the lights have flickered once, and cut off completely twice for a second or two each. Since it's 72 right now and won't be going much cooler, I really want the A/C to run tonight.

And now we are getting it. Noisy, but the rain is good for the lawn and veggie garden out on the property. We had an earlier bout with the thunder. Spike and myself along with Teddy were sitting outside. Poor Teddy, was so terrified of the thunder. he jumped up on my scooter and tried to hide under my seat.
Then when we brought him inside and he got into the apartment, he immediately jumped up on my bed and crawled under the blankets.

102F is as high as it got while we were out on the highway, had a low of 72 on the way home just before it started raining.

Windy as heck, too...where the blazes are we? Wyoming? Oh, yeah...

Outside was 72, inside was 74. Both OK for now. But it should be a humid 82 by 10 in the morning. It's a preemptive move. Besides, our day/night A/C settings are 79/76. Looking for dry air more than cold.

The funny thing is, in the winter we never set it above 69 on the coldest, windiest days and we're warm enough. It's usually 67 during the day. I can always add another layer of clothing, but there's only so much I'll take off!

Only 74 so far this morning but the dew point is 67 and I feel like my hair is starting to mildew!

I'm ready for autumn leaves, pumpkins, apple cider and cinnamon doughnuts!

Ahhh, a cool 55! Haven't seen that in a LONG time. Going to 85 later today. We need RAIN! Hasn't rained in months and months. Everything is starting to change color so maybe we will have an early, rainy fall. We can hope!
