    :cry: It has been soo hot outside. Now I live on Lake Superior, so we normally don't get hot weather. The humidity is so high, the concrete walls are sweating. I can't sew since I only have an air conditioner in the living room. I can get about 2 hr early 6am in the morning before the humidity gets too bad.

    exactly-
    yesturday with all 3 fans we own going i was wondering why we had not at least picked up an air conditioner for our bedroom...oh well- a couple cool showers & we survived- looks like it's going to be a smoker week!
    and my goofy cat for some reason really felt the need to be close- lay across me last night- he's a little hot-box! tramatized by the wicked storm that came through during the night.
    i just remind myself- i'll be remembering this week when January rolls around!

    Oh I am in the same steamy boat. Went to bed last night and it was still 86 degree out. It times like this I am soo happy my sewing room is in the basement. It so nice and cool there.
    I actually have a summer bed in the basement for when it gets too hot! Even my dog has become a cellar dweller.

    I'm in eastern PA and we are expecting another wave of hot stuff toward the end of the week although it already feels hot here. They are saying high 90s.

    We're getting it in Connecticut by Wednesday. We are going to have one nice dry day tomorrow and in the 90's for the rest of the week. Thank God for central air.

    I sew in my basement and it stays relatively cool all year round.

    It's suppose to be in the low 100's today. Thank the dear Lord for air conditioning, lemon-aid, shorts and flip flops! It's going to be that high all week. I think we might plan a beach trip for the weekend!! Whoooo-hoo!

    It is hot and muggy here in south Florida... my son lives in the mid-west and it is dry and over 100 degrees there... you know what this means... drought many places... cotton prices rising... go shopping and buy some quilting fabric... of course to save money before the prices go up... lol

    You don't know what hot is until you live in Kansas.Since June we have had extremely hot weather and very dry. When you get up at 6am and it is already 85 you know it,s going to be ho. 109 yesterday. I just feel for the farmers. No grass and ponds are dry.Dear Lord give us some rain.

    Yikes! That is hot!! We're hitting 90 today and for about 10 days or so. It gets humid too. But nothing like you describe. I remember summers in Iowa - yuk!

    I moved my machine to the dining room table for now - its cooler in there :)

    ==================================
    Yes, I remember that snow. In the winter of about 1960, my exDH was stationed at K.I. Sawyer, and we got there in the middle of the winter, and even the planes weren't there yet. Snow everywhere, I had to put my two babies in a box on a wagon and drag them to the grocery store@!
    They said they had different seasons there, Winter, Almost winter and Summer and that week they went swimming. And I honestly don't remember much except that snow.

    Right now I think my daughters in Texas don't want to hear from me..I'm sitting here in my sweat shirt and jeans and heavy boots, with the front door and a back door open and screens locked to let in some fresh air.

    I am so use to this hot humid weather but I like it alot more than I do the freezing cold.

    Like the midwest we are expecting temps reaching 100 this week and heat index'es to 115.

    I came out of WalMart earlier tonight and when I walked onto the parking lot the heat was balmy. I could see the haze.

    We in Florida are used to that so there is AC all over but my yard is suffering - just don't feel like going out to the sauna to pull weeds.

    You will be getting what we have now!!!!! Think like we do - it's going to be winter soon enough!!!!!! We don't think so much about the temp, its the dew point and humidity that melts us all right down to the sidewalk! Edie

    We're tough out here in the tundra!!!!!! In the winter it is colder'n ---- and in the summer it is hotter'n ----, but that is what makes us Minnesotans!!!! It's in our genes! We love the cold Winter because we know Spring and Summer is coming and we love the Summer because we know Winter is coming. Or as the old saying goes "If winter's here, can Spring be far behind?"

    But, we are the world's biggest gripers! Never satisfied, too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry. That also is what makes us Minnesotans. Wouldn't trade Minnesota for anywhere in the world. Edie

    I lived in Duluth for 3 years, I feel your pain. You don't normally even need air conditioning. I hope it cools off for both of us.
