Its soooo hot here!!! - Page 2

post #21 of 51
DD wants to know: Are you exagerating about the 122 degrees? Yeah, and I'd like to know, too! Seriously? 122?!

That would...that would make it so I never leave the house. Or, if I HAD to go somewhere, I'd have to run out to the car and get it started with the AC blasting, go back inside and wait for 5 minutes, and then go out and get in the pre-cooled car.

Yesterday is was the hottest its been. I took the boys for supper, because there was no way I was turning a burner on!
Night hasn't been as bad, I leave the bedroom doors closed all day with room darkening shades and a fan blowing. Those windows don't get sun past 9 am so by bedtime they are a bit cooler.

That's exactly how I feel right now! We're having our first hot/humid spell of the summer here in the NE US. I am not tolerating it very well.

I actually chose to go to work (air conditioned office) this afternoon over taking the afternoon off and going home. DS is at the beach today with his childcare provider and her family - so I'm sure he's happy.

Not exaggerating! The hottest I've ever seen was 128. We always break 120 for several days in the summer...this summer has been the hottest I can remember, more 115+ days in a row than we usually have. It's still in the high 90's or low 100's in the middle of the night! We can't even go swimming, the pool is 96 degrees. Terrrrrible. We avoid going outside as much as possible.

Ah yes -- I've been out to Parker AZ before and it's been 115+. Miserable! It is a dry heat, but I feel like I'm baking at that heat. Unless we're in the river or in the house with the a/c on, I feel like I can't breathe and I'm going to die.

It hasn't been horribly hot here yet (southern CA) -- it's hit 90 a few times, but has mostly been in the 80s. We've even been getting fog overnight, so it's been nice to get some relief. Those nights when it stays in the 80s all night are just awful. I'm sorry some of you are dealing with that kind of weather right now! I'm crossing my fingers that our summer stays like it has been so far.

At my temp job this morning (fire protection) they are forcasting relief for us by the end of next week. 7 days to go!

I am in southern B.C. I just checked the local weather and it said the humidity tonight would be 60%

I hate just sweating while I am sitting doing nothing

HOT HOT HOT!!

I'm in BC too, and also feeling like I'm dying. I leave in a few hours for a road trip and I've had barely any sleep because IT'S TOO HOT! It's midnight and the temperature in my house right now is 92 degrees. And that's with windows open. I want to cry.

How do you exist without AC?! I can't imagine.

We actually hit our "average" high temp today - 96. Only the fourth time this month. Every other day has been above average, with nine record highs in July, and 25 days at or above 100.

To the poster with 122 degrees: omg Note to self: never, EVER be in that area of the country during summer. For any reason.

We're making a habit of having "cold" dinners - salad, naan and hummus was tonight's meal. No oven, not even a burner turned on.

Two to three more weeks, and the slow decline of temps will begin. At least, that's how it usually works around here.

Some day, I will regularly spend the last half of July and the first half of August SOMEWHERE COOLER. Like Australia. It's winter down under.

It was so hot my little girl woke up with heat sickness this morning. She was cuddling up to me clammy and yuck. I don't know what to do for her since it isn't as if she was actually doing anything to make herself hot, just sleeping.

It's extremely humid here. The dewpoint is the great humid factor. When the dew point is close to the actual temp (as has been here), it's downright horrible.
I wish I had a/c for the living room. ugh.
post #32 of 51
It was 104 degrees yesterday, no A/C! It's heating up again and is unusually muggy- bleah!!!!!!!!!!

110 here, low humidity, but still too hot to be out until atleast 6pm I now prefer fall over summer.

Poor baby! Can you run a cool bath and let her play in the tub for a while or something to cool off? It's so stressful to not be able to get relief when it's hot like that day and night.

Because on a normal year it would only be 70-75 deg this time of year. We would only hit mid 80's for a day or 2.
We have block heaters in our vehicles, not AC in our houses.

Last night I hung out 3 loads of laundry - all after 9 pm - with the clothes overlapping, and then sheets overlapping the clothes... and they were still dry within an hour. This is NOT normal - usually my laundry would still be wet in the morning.

Even the stuff I hung up inside the house was dry super fast. I did manage to sleep okay, though, with a cold shower and then the fan pointed straight at my bed.

Ah well... At least I don't have to shovel my car out of the sun! :

Yeah, I guess it finally got hot in our neck of the woods, huh?

Last night I went out to my car and there was condensation on it. The humidity makes me feel like I'm in a jungle.

I don't know how anyone in the SW does it! Anything over 85 degrees, and I am dying. In fact when it is 85 out, I put on my A/C! I guess I'm a big wimp compared to you guys!

Here in the Michigan it has been a VERY cool summer, and I am loving it. The only problem is not much swimming which we love, but the water temp. is too cold.

Here's hope for comfortable temperatures and humidity for everyone!

I think I am actually starting to get used to it! And I am the red head who is extremely heat sensitive usually. We arehardly getting anything done this week... trying to keep cool is about it. With two kiddos with sensory issues it is pretty trying. My 5 year old has never ever even dipped his toes in the lake whenever we have gone... he has been right in there every single day this week!( yay!) I keep the bathtub full of cold water and we dip in and out of it whenever we need to cool down. I also have some of those fabric bags that you can fill with ice cubes ( you can get them at the pharmacy) so each of the boys can take thier own to bed.All of the things we do to stay cool!

I don't know what it was in my house today, but it was 42C/108F on the front porch when dh got home. It's brutal. I am not cut out for this, and neither are my kids. Unfortunately, I haven't fully recovered from my c-section and can't wrangle ds2 effectively...and he need wrangling. So, we're pretty much stuck inside the house. I hope this breaks soon. I'm getting a lot of headaches, and I just feel incredibly crappy, in general.

I want the rain...I really want the rain.
