    It's currently 33 C here, feels like 38 (100.4F). Of course, I have a head cold... Don't know if my fever is just due to the heat outside or not.

    Got all my drapes closed and I'm sweating to the oldies smile

      Its, a heat wave out here too. We live in the valley and its like living in  a bowl of soup. Whatever comes over the  mountain ridges we inhale it. That includes dirty hot air. On the other hand it cools off considerably out here at night. The way I deal with it is place fans throughout the house during the day to create a draft. At some point throughout the night the house cools considerably. I then pull the blankets over me and sleep the rest of the night.  That gives a little relief from the heat.  We repeat the process around late noon the next day.

    It's 91 F, here on my side of the river. The air is so heavy, it feels like you're swimming. Yuck.

    Try a cold towel around your neck, and cold water on your feet. Oh, and this is the perfect weather for going around nakedly. At least at my house. hee hee

    Feel better!

      Send some of it over here. Last week it dropped down to 0 and I woke up at 5am so cold I couldn't get back to sleep. Winter is here to stay...

      On a brighter note I plan to one day earn enough off hubpages to buy myself three houses, one in each place I can find with the best weather and move with the nice weather! big_smile

    I'm holding an ice pack right now smile

    Thanks, I think my cold is on the way out. My nose is currently running like a tap and I'm sneezing. That is usually the last stages smile

    Didn't help I also had a dental emergency today and spent over an hour with my mouth open in the dentists office.

      Hey UW...I'm surprised you haven't been using your Neti Pot (I read your article a while back).  I find it works very well at keeping allergies and nasal irriations down to a minimum.
      Go ahead...do yourself a favour. smile

      btw, it's hot up here (120km (75 miles) northeast of Toronto) too, but not unbearable.

        I am using it but I still get colds. I've been using my neti pot 3 times a day, it does cut down on the length a cold does last.

    You are in good company, it is pretty hot here too. We had a little bit of a break this weekend, with some pretty cool temperatures, but it is back to being really hot again!

    Nothing wrong with a cold shower, although I don't know if that would work with your head cold...

    A heat wave like this reminds me why I will never move to Florida. I can take the heat, but the humidity is just too much. I'll take a 110 degree day in the desert (like say, Las Vegas) over a humid 100 degree day. I took a shower about 4 hours ago and I still haven't dried off.

      I would still be living in B'ham, Al. if it weren't for that damned humidity.  It's wretched!

    June, July and August. Then back to WINTER again. I just "love" Canadian climate. Mail me ice cream too, vanilla with chocolate and nuts on top, please.

    Come visit Flagstaff, AZ. Today we'll top out at about 80 F and 25% humidity.  This is what passes for a heat wave here smile

    SE MA

    The thermometer in my porch says 100, but TWC insists it is only 95, so I feel much better.

    Still refusing to run the A/C.  Blinds drawn, fans and buck naked works for now.

    Don't tell Brenda; she will just get all weirded out.  Because of the fans, I mean.

      As long as they are not blowing directly on the naughty bits, she should have no issue with it.  That trajectory would be too much like sex in her book (Leviticus).

        Why would I want to point the fan anywhere else?

        I know I LOOK crazy and I know some of my hubs indicate a certain estrangement from reality, but sheesh, I know where to point a fan!

    What a  bunch of pussies !!!  Here it climbs to 40+  and then back to a nice refreshing 35 all the time for around 2 months with swimmable humidity !

    Get naked and enjoy it before it turns to sleety rain and you all start moaning about the cold !  big_smile

    UW hope you feel better soon.  I'm only about 2 hours drive from you so it's stinkin' hot here too... bone melting hot.
    I wonder if there is a way to build a little shack in the middle of the pool and live out the summer there???
