Letters from a Hill Farm
That's the look I had when someone asked if we were going to eat in the garden today. What? For real?
She would be appalled! It's terrible here too in PA. No air conditioning?Mary
Nope! We have a few days like this some years, not every summer by any means. Usually the fans work fine!
I'm so looking forward to a temporary break in the heat and humidity tomorrow. We've been spending too much time indoors with central air and getting cabin fever. Fortunately we went out to dinner tonight and I've still be going to yoga as it's nice and cool there too.
Yup! I finished a book sitting in front of fans for days!
We've been having two days of rainy (finally!!) and cooler weather, with last weekend's lovely summer weather to return tomorrow. It probably won't get over 30 Celsius (which is about 88 F I think), but it will be all the nicer for it to enjoy the outdoors after a full week "locked up" in the office.
Perfect timing for the weather!
Horrible. I hope you're finding ways to cope? We had it like that when were last in the US. I have vivid memories of the mid 90s in Baltimore and Memphis. We're in the low to mid 80s here, which I'm sure you know is 'quite warm' for us. Not keen at all. Roll on autumn.
My way of coping is to sit in front of fans and read. We did take Hazel to Incredibles 2 in an air-conditioned theatre!
Poor thing. We have this weather in SW Indiana too. Horrifying for this time of year. This is our August weather. UGH... Mrs Bale doesn't have any different look on her face than I.
Ugh is right!
same here in Tennessee, only higher, do not like...
Nope, I 'do not like' either!!
That must be very hot in Maine. When we were kids in Georgia, we ate a lot of watermelon and ice cream just to cool down. No air conditioning in Georgia as a child, I wonder how I survived? :-)
NH not Maine. ;<) I wonder about that, too. How did southerners deal before air-conditioning? Maybe life was different? Lifestyles?
It's much cooler here today...Been brutal for nearly a month.
I put an addendum on my post - it is much cooler today! Supposed to be in the forties tonight. Ah, bliss!
Lovely 40s, Nan? We want see that here until October!
I'm so glad it cooled down for you! Lows in the 40s will be lovely, right? I talked to my brother who lives in San Diego and they set record yesterday. 115! He lives inland (Escondido), but still! TOO hot. We're still in the upper 50s/lower 60s during the day. I may never leave Oregon again!
I can't even imagine you with temperatures that warm. Me, yes, but we have A/C everywhere. I bet you did spend time in front of the fan with a book. Reminds me of when I was a kid at my grandmothers' houses - they didn't have A/C and it was fans all the time. I suspect it's cooler for you now. Of course, you winter temperatures make me shiver to think about them. LOL
may it stay 20 degrees cooler for the rest of the summer. Mrs Bales cannot take those temperatures. (And nor can anyone else who lives where airi-condtioning is not usually needed. Take care!!)
I'll answer your comments as soon as I possibly can. Please do come back if you've asked a question.Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
