We had perfect weather again today. I'm sorry. It was a dry upper-70s today with a gentle, cooling breeze. It could stay like this until right after Halloween, as far as I'm concerned. However, I see upper-80s on the horizon, so I know we'll be putting our A/C on soon enough. Until then, I'll enjoy open windows. On the other hand, I hope any neighbors who HAD to sleep tonight have allergies and they had their window A/Cs running. Seems like I got a little excited at the end of the basketball game tonight...

It's a little after 4 am and it's 65F outside. They are working on the electrical for the town later today and all the electricity will be turned off. It's going to get hot and miserable.

Oh Dear. I know how much you hate the hot weather. Pull down all your shades or blinds and don't let the sun in. That will heat up your home faster than anything else.

I took a quick ride on my scooter and the temp was a perfect 79F. A nice breeze was coming in from the Atlantic. Perfect weather. On the way to the store and back, I said "Good morning" with a big smile to every person I passed. One man was so stunned he stopped in his tracks.

High of 111F today, now at 5:50PM it's down to 108. More fires burning down in the southland.

Oh, wait!
We DO NOT have A/C!
There's a "swap cooler" that, I'm sorry I don't care what anyone else says, DOES NOT make a big difference!

Preparing ourselves for some more of Mother Nature's hot flashes. Supposed to be hotter 'n the hinges of hell here tomorrow. Triple digits, along with a delicious rise in the humidity.

Welcome to Kentucky's summer season. No more long pants...or long anything. Cutoffs, short shorts and tank tops will be the uniform of the day until sometime in October.
