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
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
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!
I'm holding an ice pack right now
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
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.
btw, it's hot up here (120km (75 miles) northeast of Toronto) too, but not unbearable.
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...
Hope you feel better quick, UW passes a popsicle tis hot around here n was so beautiful in 70s yesterday but yes..must be a heatwave usually doesnt occur till August around here but is only July suppose we will have to wilt or get a heavy duty a/c? lol
wow, we're having a cool spell, it's 80 F with 82% humidity.
rainy off and on throughout the day.
..face melting... air conditioning in car not working... the Sun Gods are taking their wrath upon me... please someone mail ice cream
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.
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
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).
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 !
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???

When did you feel you "fit in" around here?How long after joining Hubpages and being consistently active did you feel you were bonding with other members and were welcomed? What made this happen and did it affect your hubs or success?

As a guest was leaving I was going to bring out a bag of trash (because I don't really like going out in the dark yard alone). There are woods around my street, and we have all the usual woodland creatures (and owls) including deer. We have coyotes too. As far as I know, we don't...

What are you doing to keep cool in this heatwave?Many states across America are hitting record high temperatures. If you live in any of these areas. What are you doing to keep cool? Are you staying indoors with A/C, perhaps enjoying the pool?

It seems to me if I promote my hubs here I will be shafted - but if I don't you will never know about me. And if you don't know me now (after two years) - you may never know me ever! So I'm not promoting my hubs - I'm merely promoting "me"! To know me is to love me - or vice versa. Anyway...
