That was the low last night. It'll be 112 today and the news just said it's going to get hotter. I really need to get A/C in my house...and my truck...and a sprinkler or two to run naked through in the yard. That'd be a helluva day off of work. A sprinkler, a Hurricane, a lawnchair. Occassional nekkid jaunts through the water and a good book to read while drying. I think I'm gonna do it. Monday.

Spyder, you don't have A/C at home?! Yikes!

It's supposed to be in the 90s here today, low 100s the next couple of days. Usually, summer's are pretty mild in Oregon west of the Cascades, but we have enough hot days that I sprung for central air when my house was built. Probably half of the houses in my neighborhood have it, and many that don't have window units.

Am planning to take Betty to a car show Sunday; it's supposed to be in a park, so I'm hoping I can park in a shady spot. The last show I went to, it got pretty hot on the drive home since Betty's A/C compressor seized last summer. Fortunately, Cruella's A/C is blowing 42º to 45º F. God bless GM air conditioning. That's one thing GM has always done well.

Yea...I can handle wind, but houses flying through the air I'll pass up.

I have a swamp cooler, but they're really rather worthless at anything over 90 degrees or so, and its so damned expensive to run I havn't even bothered to run the water hose up to it yet. I just run a fan when I'm home and let the neighbors worry about not looking in my windows when I'm walking around naked. :)

I've been starting my lawn work after 8pm lately. I tried it in the middle of the day last week and it almost killed me. What's worse is the lawn management company fertilized the yard, and now it needs mowing at least twice a week! :thepan:

I cut from 6:20 until 8:00. We got some nice cloud cover that made it bearable.

Well, it's no box of chocolates up here, either = regularly 95+ with the humidity easily cranking it 10 degrees higher than that.

I cut the grass at 8:30am - yes, in the morning. Any gardening has to be finished by 9:30am or it doesn't get done that day. We have 1 window shaker and it's installed in the bedroom window on the 2nd floor. Rated at 12,000 BTUs. With the help of 3 electric fans and the unit pegged at "high",, it cools the house down completely after 48 hours of continuous use. After that, it gets ratchetted down to "low" and the house stays in a livable condition

It's 93.5 right now, and got up to 95.9 yesterday... IN MY LIVING ROOM. I don't even want to know how hot it is outside.

104º at 4:45 p.m. PDT at home according to The Weather Channel Web site. Should be a nice, comfortable 75º in my house when I walk in the door (programmable thermostat).

God bless you, Willis Carrier (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willis_Haviland_Carrier).

From the introduction to a Time 100 profile (http://www.time.com/time/time100/builder/profile/carrier.html) of Willis Carrier by Molly Ivins:

"Would you like to write about Willis H. Carrier?"

"And who the hell might he be?"

"Man who invented air conditioning."

"A lifelong hero of mine!"

The power's out back home in St Louis. Mayor Slay is calling for National Guard support to prevent rioting and to help with rescue efforts.

1: I dont have to be there until next week.
2: My house so far isnt affected.
3: Traffic is less congested for now.

WIN! WIN! WIN!
