    so hot here in ohio!

    it is so hot here in ohio (that and I think I may be having the power surges that come with age!) I am thinking tonight I am going to make some sweet tea, crank the air conditioning, put on some christmas movies in the dvd, and cut out squares for a rag quilt. I am hoping by looking at the snow it will cool me off and by cutting some squares i can make a dent in the cluttered girl cave!

    It was hot here again today in New York State too. I am ready for FALL which is my favorite season.

    It feels like August instead of July weather here also. My garden is dry and even a few leaves are dropping off the trees early. I am watering but a nice soaking rain would be welcome. Yesterday was the 110 anniversary of the air conditioner invention and I say"well done" to the inventor. I don't think I could have made it through this heat wave without it.

    Bring on the snow!
    At least being near Lake Erie, it is "slightly" cooler.

    Summers here is WI used to be nice... the grass was green all summer long & you only had to run the A/C from time to time. You certainly could open your windows at night. This year? Ha! Even our weeds are wilted! It's awful! It did rain a little dab tonight but not enough to do any good.. just enough to make it more humid. I know I'll be singing a different song come January, but still...

    I don't even want to see my electric bill this month! Yikes!

    It was 86 degrees here in southeastern VA when DH got home at 11:30 Wednesday night. It had dropped a whole 10 degrees from the afternoon high of 96. It is also so humid you need gills to breathe outside!

    I'll be glad to send some of our lousy weather your way! We have only had about 3 days of summer weather so far this year. It has been in the low 60's but humid. I hope you get some relief soon!

    Fall is my favorite, too (it's beautiful here in WI!) & I think this year it will be especially welcome. We actually got some rain day before yesterday but it was just enough to make it more humid. But... tonight it's nice & cool so I opened the windows. I don't know about y'all, but I get so tired of having the A/C blow on me. Plus, I prefer to sleep with the windows open. It's supposed to be a bear again tomorrow, but at least tonight is nice.

    We have had about three drenching rainstorms in the last few days, just flooded the surface, big time. The soil here is clay and it just doesn't soak in, it runs off, so for a while, you have large lakes. The robins are enjoying those "lakes" very much, like watching kids at a water park. Yes, the humidity is enough to almost make you wish you were on a desert somewhere. It is even harder for me to stand after living in CO for 30 yrs. where 11% humidity is high, now here where it is often 100%. UGH!

    My son and I went to the Columbus Zoo on the 18th. Hot and humid, so I dressed as cool as I could and still be decent. Got caught in a storm right before we left. But we really had a wonderful day! This morning we had a nice quiet rain, so glad because the gardens so needed it.

    I can relate! Sometimes I just try to think "COLD". Wish I had a huge walk in refrigerator!

    Our roofers decided to put our roof on yesterday. It was 100 here. We turned our AC off because they covered them so they wouldn't get roofing thrown in them It got 99 upstairs. My sewing machines were hot to the touch. Wow! Do I ever appreciate the AC. I'll bet it was 140 on that roof. No shade. I don't know how they do it. I live in Texas.

    How lucky you are to get that much rain. We are still waiting. Maybe you could send us some, OK, LOL
    so many quilts to make, so little time.

    Seems like it is nationwide with this unusually hot weather. We had some much needed rain Wed. night and Thurs. morning and the temp dropped. It was funny cuz I was watching my DGD's. We were going to go see great grandma and the oldest Molly comes back in the house and said it is so cold out I need a jacket. Just so different to have 70's in the morning and that isn't cold but we aren't use to it anymore. Nice having the a/c off for two days. Suppose to get back to the 90's by tomorrow, oh joy!!

    It was 106 today We're doing the old Southern air-conditioning. All the drapes and blinds are closed to keep the sun and heat out. The AC is on and the ceiling fans. Drinking cool drinks - not going outside. Feeling sorry for the folks where it is 10 degrees hotter!
