    I'm not in TX,OK, or other states where the main heat bubble and drought is, but it's also been plenty hot here this summer (lots of 100 degrees, or above, days) and with high humidity.
    So what do I wear again today? Another sleeveless top. (Flabby upper arms be da**ed). I went out to get my mail at noon and I'm almost chilly. No humidity, temp is 88, and its cloudy from the storms in the area. My windows are open and a/c is off. First time in ages.
    I hope all of you in the extremely hot areas of the US get some relief like this soon.

    Lucky you....we'll be at 103 today. But back into the 90s by end of week. We also have low humidity, so not as bad as where the heat index goes up to 110 because of high humidity.

    It has been low 80's in my part of Oregon the last few weeks. I cant decide if I love it or hate it.
    If it was hotter I would be misirable and couldnt go out.
    But then again it IS summer and its too cold at the lake and chilly in the evenings and that all seems wrong.

    what can you do :lol:

    I am certainly ready for some relief from this heat!!! I know it is worse in other places, so I should not complain.

    I have a couple friends near Austin, TX and they're sooooo sick of the heat. Their grass is fried, trees are stressed. They just are begging for some rain to cool things off and clean the air.
    Try to stay cool.

    It has been so hot here that the local food bank I volunteer at changed their hours and now close by 3p, last appointment is 2:30p. The warehouse stays about 85 and that is with the fan blowing. The sorting room hasn't had many volunteers show up to sort, due to the heat, too. I can't remember a more miserable summer in my lifetime and I found out the reason why. The last time weather was this bad was 1954, I was born in '55.

    Yesterday evening I got in my truck to run an errand and it said 106! That's just too hot for 7 o'clock in the evening.
    Now I know why my AC was struggling. By 10 it had cooled off to mid 80s which was nice. Only 97 right now but supposed to hit 103 with a heat index of 110 both today and tomorrow.

    here in michigan we have had a record breaking july for heat.the humidity is so nasty, my JRT got out the front door..and took off,was back in 10 minutes..too hot for him too!
    our schools don't have air conditioning..i feel bad for the teachers and kids when they start back.

    i know it is worse all over the country..

    when my son was in bagdad, it was 114 in the day and 80 at night, he was freezing too! so i sent him a quilt!

    And we are under heat warnings until Friday at least! Pretty bad when we are all hoping for a hurricane (but just a small one with no wind damage, please! LOL)

    WE are going to be in the upper 70's today.As much as I wish it were warmer I sure as heck don't miss the heat from Texas where I grew up.We are thinking about where we want to retire and have always thought back in the south where we are from.But after watching the weather this summer we are rethinking it.After so many years out of the heat I don't want to go back to it.
