i am in south Kentucky and the past weekend and coming week are all days will be above 90 degrees. it's very unusual for this time of the year.
i 'm staying indoors and come out at 6pm to cut the grass and work in the garden.
How is anyone else coping with this?
Used to live in B'ham, Al., and could NOT handle the humidity. Kentucky must have it, too? You poor thing! Move to California; that's what I eventually did!
If you choose to live in an oven, you have to like the heat.
It's really very hard to cope with this much of heat!
HA! Bunch of sissies you guys are! Try being outside today here in southeast Georgia! Triple digits in some spots! But wait till summer when it starts to get really hot!
We are in a bad drought here and the Okefenokee swamp peat has already been burning for a few weeks. Here in the country we are serenaded by the sound of many irrigation motors running all night long. The produce and tobacco farmers are pumping millions of gallons of water out of the ground trying to keep their crops alive and hoping it might rain before long.
So, you guys aren't getting the worst of it after all!
I'm dealing with it by spending a lot of time in my pool! Lovin' the hot sunshine!!
But...if it doesn't rain soon, I think we're going to turn into a desert. All my grass is brown.
Well, it only works when I hop on that bicycle generator. That's how I'm powering my laptop right now!
yeah Georgia,with all that concrete around the ever-expanding Atlanta must be driving the heat way up!
Kentucky isn't considered a southern state,and so the excessive heat is not the usual. I moved from Florida to escape the heat and storms..ha!
We've had a major year of excessive rains and storms and then suddenly the heat switch is turned on. We are experiencing a heat index of 112 so cutting the grass is very tough as is any outdoor activities.
This is going to be a year of EXCESSIVES I've afraid.

Okay, so as a real Texan (born here and lived here all my life), I am amazed at how hot it really has become in the summer. I can remember it raining every day in the summer time and then having the humidity about knock you down. Now we have gone 20+ days without a drop of rain. ...

So quiet outdoors.Yes, yesterday was 111 F. Thermometer in the shade of the carport says 100 right now. It's been too hot for too long. Since first of June. Not enough rain, very very little. Dead grass...crunchy underfoot. I worked 2 hours yesterday which involved getting...

How do you protect a newborn during a heat wave?The temperatures have gotten as high as 120s and 130s. Adults and older kids can drink water to hydrate, but newborns cannot have water. How do I keep my newborn hydrated and cool during this dangerous heat?

Would you rather turn up the heat, or wear warmer clothing?

So I'm not sure how many states can have weather like Georgia does. I mean first off where I'm at, we really only have two seasons. Fall and Spring last all of a week maybe two or three if we're lucky. But, get this.... This past weekend was crazy!We start the weekend off with rains on Friday....
