|It was summer a looong time ago here! on Jun 22, 2007 @ 12:04 pm|
We've been in 100+ degree temps here for a couple weeks now...and 90s for longer than that, so summer has been here for a while! I think 107 has been the high so far.....it will get hotter....ugh...it's supposed to hit 110 today!

Wow, I can relate to apothenaJen here in the southeast. I think we broke into the 90s back in April (or at least it feels like it!) and never really left. I'm a northern prairie girl by birth and after 2 years of this stuff kinda miss my winters. Kinda.

I actually sat outside today for an hour in the sun and just loved it. I love the sun and could never get sick of it - though I do appreciate those extreme temps are no fun :)
|summer solstice on Jun 22, 2007 @ 11:43 pm|
Yeah, I posted this thread b/c the 21st was the solstice ... longest day of the year an the "official" start to summer (yeah, I know, I'm a geek). So all you hot temp livin' people can look forward to your days slowly getting shorter ... and cooler.
I took the last 3 hours of work off and went home and took a nap on the back porch! mmmmmm

Enjoy it while you got it, but dang it's hot everywhere ! Here in Florida, I don't think we used our heat a total of five days and went straight to the A/C. . . . and I'm in "north" Florida !
I wish it had stayed a little cooler a little longer so we could have used the windows, but that didn't happen this year. I just pray we have a gentle Hurricane Season . . .
ApothenaJen - Do you say/hear "But it's a dry heat." where you live ? Like if it was any "drier" you'd shrivel up and blow away ? We have a "wet" heat - so hot we use a snorkel, LOL !!!
|Yeah it's a dry heat.... on Jun 25, 2007 @ 02:54 pm|
But so is a blow torch! That is my husband's response to the question. Yeah that is a common statement, but most people don't say it when they are here and it is 115, because they can barely breathe at that point. When it's 115 outside, you cannot believe what it is inside a car that's been sitting out in the sun. Nothing can describe that feeling of getting into the car. We once had a thermometer in the car, and it melted! But I don't think I could handle snorkel heat. I don't like humidity. Nothing beats swimming in a pool or the lake when its 115 outside. ahhhh
|hahah, love it! on Jun 25, 2007 @ 11:22 pm|
Snorkel Heat! That's awesome! I always spoke of it as 'air you can wear.' I can appreciate both comments as I lived in FL for 4 years while attending Univ. of Miami for undergrad. I had enough of that and got as far away as I could! :-P
