    heat and humidity

    I do not like the heat and humidity that I experienced this weekend. I know everyone has a different set of tolerances regarding actual numbers, but hearing, "Oh, wasn't the weather so nice?" from people who sat around in AC all weekend long really steams me.*

    I think that's about all I can say without a CoC violation.

    Thanks for letting me vent!

    I went to a Baptism today, a restaurant afterwards, the eatery had no AC.
    The thermometer was reading 94, and I know the humidity inside that place was close to 100%
    The party went off with a hitch except the lack of air to breath.
    (but it was hot, really really tough to spend an entire afternoon in a suit)

    Mark, I'm with ya. It has been awful here all week. I don't like the heat or humidity. It was 97 in the garage/shop yesterday with the door up and the fan running. This is late July/August weather. I'm thinking about putting in a window A/C to get it so I can at least stand it for longer than 10 min.

    Yup...we've had the heat problem too! Could have turned it on the last week or so but didn't. Down in the 40's at night....daytime highs in the low 60's F .....cloudy....rainy.....

    Saturday, the oldest son played in a golf tournament. He came home and took a 30 minute hot shower to get warmed back up. He wore shorts and short sleeve shirt to the tournament. High of 60 with intermittant rain and wind. I'm not sure why he wore the shorts.....

    Welcome to my world! It's like that most all summer and it started early this year.
    God grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked anyway,
    the good fortune to run into the ones I do,
    and the eyesight to tell the difference.

    boy oh boy, you weren't just whistling dixie. Today with the rain and the humidity, I was glad to stay in the house, or in the PACU when I went and scored a free 4 tube flourescent light fixture and also a ceiling fan from a friend of mine who just renovated her kitchen.

    Echoing Jeff...

    Oh, FW'ers, please do come visit me and Bill, who live (separately) here in the DC Metro area... which was built on a swamp with accompanying mosquito peeps for those who don't know.

    Today, unusually hot at 98 degrees and about the same humidity... mmm... great for the skin, horrible for hair and everything else. Can't wait for August.

    I couldnt work in the garage today, I straightened things out, unloaded a ton of PT for all the chairs I have to get busy with, and then washed out the pails, only because it invovled the use of cold water, then I was done.
    The thought of working with sawdust today, well, made me think of shake-n-bake. I sweat profusely, and the sawdust would be coating me like a shake -n -bake chicken.

    'Cause of all the extra hot air being expelled into the atmosphere?
