    111 degrees here today!

    Low humidity so it wasn't as bad as it could have been for the area. It sure was a scorcher day. The kids are coming over tomorrow to spend the day to swim. I checked tonight and the pool water is like warm bath water. Ha. I bet they all pile up in the LR and watch movies and eat all day. It will be a good day!
    Got fabric?

    It has been hot here also. We get a few days a little cooler than right back to hot. Humidity has been low, a little more today. There was a bit of fog this morning. I'm not a hot weather person, looking forward to fall. Enjoy your company.

    I heard from my SIL back in KS & she said it was hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk there, too! Here in WI, it's been miserable (for us -- we're used to cool). This summer has just been nuts! I wonder what winter will be like?

    Not too sure which is worse.I used to live in a place that hovered around129 degrees in the summer (should have realised when I arrived in the winter and it was 68 degrees and everyone was wearing fleecy jumpers). Now I live in a place that hovers around 19 degrees in the winter and gets to be 68 in the summer. Not quite beyond whining about both! Hawaii has a nice climate for me...

    It has been so hot (19 days above 100 degrees in July) that when the temperature for the day is below 100 it feels like a cold wave. If only I could bottle up some of this for next winter.
    And yes, it is toooo hot to swim! I would never have believed it.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    I agree it is too hot (also in STL area). And I know there is nothing we can do about it. I did get out on the deck yesterday for about an hour for some hand piecing! I did that a lot back in June along with dinner outside. Miss those days and looking forward to fall and the cooler temps.

    Sounds like temp. in my part of the country. We have already had 115 so far this summer, and that was in May. We have had so many 105-110 days so far, to many to count. Our really hot days are normally near the end of July and in August. We are scheduled for 108 on Fri. Have to just stay in under the AC and quilt, lol.

    Now Cindy, you must remember dear, you do live in Tex and we don't always have a fall season it seems, or even a spring, at least not out here in far W. Tx. where I live, We just have summer and winter, lol.

    111*.....I feel your discomfort. Am very thankful for air conditioning! We are in the triple digits all week and high humidity which is normal for living in TN near Ole Man River. Fall is around the corner....looking forward to the crisp smell in the air walking through fallen leaves. Hang in there.

    101 doesn't sound so bad after reading this.

    Speaking of fallen leaves... it's so hot & dry here that our trees have already started losing their leaves!

    That reminds me of what else is so icky about this heat wave... it doesn't even cool down at night!!! You can open your windows or anything. I hate to sleep under the A/C but considering that it's still 76 degrees right this second, I don't dare open my house up.

    Average temps in the summer here in the CA desert are 108. We feel lucky to have a 100 degree day. Of course our winter is time to grow flowers and tomatoes. I can't complain, 3 months of hot and 9 months of soooooo nice.

    Every place has its drawbacks. We lived in Benicia, California for 11 years and heard thunder 3 times! Otherwise the rain just gently dripped down. The cool even weather was not at all worth missing out on our Texas thunder storms, heat lighting and spectacular sky fireworks. When the triple digits come we're blessed to be able to go indoors and stay comfortable - and that's only 2 months a year. For 10 months our Texas weather is the best around, particular when it rains.

    The town I live in was on the 5:00 news tonight because the Mississippi River is so low that a barge ran aground here. Then our local weatherman said that July had been the hottest month on record here. I believe it! It's supposed to only be in the 80's this weekend & that will feel so good!

    But please remind me about all my whining about the heat come about January when it's who-knows-how cold... LOL! Actually, I don't mind the winters here in WI except that they're so long (they start in October & go till at least April) & it gets dark so early (mid-winter it's completely dark by about 4 in the afternoon!).
