    The oppressive heat broke last night - rain came through, and everything cooled off.

    For the first time in 3 weeks, the AC is off and the windows are open. It is only in the mid 70s here. Still a bit humid, but the fresh air feels good.

    I had a summer cold for about two weeks after being cooped up inside - that broke last night with the weather. Coincidence? I think not.

    It must be nice to never think about the future.

    did you ever wonder - during those three weeks with the AC blowing - whether this heatwave was something that might have been created by people who live in warm places and run AC all the time?

    I think he means when the Earth is destroyed by the expanding red giant Sun in 7.6 billion years.

    its actually that bright yellow thing in the sky, when the earth rotates, and the yellow thing disappears its gets cold and dark. I rest my case.

    Complain about summer heat, get blamed for all of global warming by a smug European. Predictable as tube vs. digital wars. It's a good thing that European folks have never caused any major world problems!! :)

    Whenever we have a nice cloudless sunny day like this, tops out about 78°, and there’s like 30% humidity *, everybody going crazy about how nice it is (Especially when it arrives after a nasty heat wave like we just had ) I always remind the family -

    “San Diego ? LA ? Every day ...”

    They always look at me the exact same way , rolling their eyes and screech “Well why don’t you move there ?!”

    Every. Single. Time.

    Ah...summer !

    *Pathetic thing is, we have maybe 25 to 30 days per year like this...:lol::cry:

    First time our 1880's house became unbearable. We have restored most of it, but main house part is still the horse hair/lath in walls. The basement was dirt when it was bought.Have stoned it & then concreted. had to carry stones down by bucket. Pretty cool in the lil old town, this house was part of the underground railroad. You see where tunnels were dug out the back wall. Had to block the first 4 ' of parts of foundation The original walls are huge stone & had shifted some. Main house stayed the hottest even through the night. The Master ad on i did was fine. Was planning on doing the insulation & ad Central Air but we will be moving soon. But main part of the house with the window Ac units just couldn't defend the heat index too well. Today, finally the temp in the house came back to bearable.

    No doubt, the modern day Catch-22. Of course, this is just part of the story.:cry:

    Yep. I just left Chicago 6:35am this morning. Of course it was nice. It was nice Sunday while it was pouring like heck downtown. But for three days it was pretty nasty. Glad to be back in a dry heat.....:cool:

    It’s been warmer in most of America than it is here in the Caribbean. A couple of weeks ago it was 94 in Anchorage and a seasonal 86 here. I’m a firm believer that climate change is real
    A short few years ago I had folks in the 48 say it was too hot in the tropics for them. If I was a total douche I’d say, “suck it clowns”. But, hopefully, I’m not but “suck it clowns” lol
