Baby, It's Hot Outside!

We're Having a Heat Wave

Now I know for you folks who live south of the Mason-Dixon Line or in Texas or other parts of the Southwest that 105 degrees may not seem that hot but for those of us who live in the Northeast it's pretty extreme. Extremely hot!

Even though my car thermometer showed yesterday's temperature to be a balmy 105 degrees here in Norwich, according to the weather gurus on the local news channels this morning the new all-time record was set at Bradley Field yesterday setting the official bar at 103 degrees.  Personally I'm in no hurry to see that record broken anytime soon!

As I know we all spent the winter complaining about how cold it was and that there was no place to put all of the snow that fell I'm not going to complain about the heat and the humidity. Instead I'm going to simply hope the heat wave ends soon and be thankful it hasn't caused any parking problems with my neighbors.  Hey - it's the little things that count, right?  

Now if you'll excuse me I'm going to work where I'll be enjoying the air-conditioning all day!


  1. I sure hate to pay the higher electric bills, but I am not in favor of "glistening" either, so the A/C churns on. Ceiling fans help us keep the thermostat turned up to 75 or so. And we wait for September:)

    Big hugs, honey...

  2. it's in the low 90's here this week, that is about our high, don't ever remember 100 here. i like 80 the best though!

  3. Honey, it it HAWT! I've got my AC set on 80 and have the ceiling fan on in whatever room I may be in. If I start feeling warm, and I do, I go out onto the patio for a few minutes. When I come back inside that AC now feels nice and cool again!

    Stay hydrated! xoxo

  4. Yep you are having our temperatures and we have yours probably. Been a very cool summer here. Global warming you know.

    Have a terrific day and stay cool. :)

    Ours is set 78-80 as well. Feels like 60 when you come in from the outside.

  6. We've heard in Britain how hot it is. Phew!

  7. I agree Linda... 105 would be horrid in Oregon also...the country is too damned hot right now... Hell on Earth would be my thought

  8. We're in the same boat. Finally got Hubby to install the big A/C unit in the living room last week. Megan needed it when she had her fevers. Now I have it set to energy saver at 72 degrees and its not too bad.
