    I so understand, the heat in Houston is miserable as well, fans just blow more hot air - stay cool

    I am so sorry. So glad you are able to go to your sisters. It is 107 here today so believe me we are in the house.

    Yeah, we need cooler days too. We are on day 85 of over 100 degrees this summer. Unfortunately, most days have been 108. (Wichita Falls) I figure this can't last more than 30 more days!! :) At least I have got a lot of quilting done. Too hot to do anything outside.

    Ditto from The Woodlands, just north of Houston. Last night at 7 o clock, the thermometer said 102---and it feels hotter. Our air condition is churning away and the yard is browning.

    Texas certainly is taking a hit with the heat.

    Fans cool you better if you keep wet (or at least keep your face wet)...with a plant mister bottle or other squirt bottle. Just spray your face and stand near the fan so it will help evaporate it and cool you.

We've beat the old record set in 1980! this summer... I know it's been one long, hot summer and I'm so ready for rain, and COLD weather! Hope you get your AC fixed soon..wouldn't ya know it goes out on a weekend!!

    I'm sorry for you. I know I can't take the extreme heat at all anymore.

    I hope your AC is well soon.

    I live in Texas as well- close to Wichita Falls. It has been a brutal summer.

    Take care of yourself.

    I live in Windham Maine - just outside of Portland. I work as a dispatcher for Directv crews and have recently been assigned to the Baton Rouge/ Texas area. For the last three months I have been hearing about the unbelievable stretch of weather that you folks have been suffering through and I just can't believe it. I saw a video the other day of people dancing in a rain storm in Texas that looked so celebratory it seemed tribal. My heart breaks for your situation. Perhaps we should be thankful that winter is on the way but Lord only knows what that will bring. Global warming is not a political football. It is real.

    I know the feeling about the heat, this is one time I kinda wish I lived above the Mason Dixon line...... :|

    I hope you are able to get the air on and fast along with some well deserved rain!
