It was 46 here today with the humidity of 83%.. which is 114 F.. yuckkkk! And the temp is not going down much tonight. Tomorrow, 43...or 109 F.

No breeze. Just hot and sticky. This is like, sweat while you're sitting in front of a fan weather.

I'm going to sleep with a giant freezie on my stomach tonight.

Saphelle--a trick of friend of mine from Greece used to do when it was like this was to put her pillows in the freezer in the morning so they were cold when she went to bed.

I concur--this has definitely been a three-shower day.

LOL - that would be a great idea on another forum CWS, however, I suspect most of us foodies have full freezers! At least I do !

Now, a freezer for the bed... ohhhh....

It's 75 degrees out, little breeze. I was able to get an ISOCool mattress pad and pillows when we got the new mattress. They help with the night sweats.

I had the windows open while running up and downstairs doing laundry, but the a/c is on now. It says low 90s with 85% humidity, but with no breeze it's sweaty weather.

I'll be able to open it up again while I go shopping at 11 a.m. I've been keeping the electric bill down by only running the a/c for 20 minutes or so at a time.

Most days I won't have to turn it back on for a couple of hours, but some days lately. I've been hard pressed to wait even one hour.
