I went out to tend the "crop" and had to call it a day after 1/2 hour. Three fans running inside. Great excuse for watching the Red Sox at 1pm. I'm not even considering the Sail Power and Steam jam in Rockland this afternoon. Things are cooling off considerably after today.
My new portable AC could not keep up yesterday. Today was supposed to be hotter, but slightly less humid. My outdoor thermometer just hit 90F, indoor 83F. Heading out to the ice cream Bluegrass concert at Fort Hill (details in another forum) in a few minutes, don't envy the musicians. I'll probably only stay an hour, then soak in the 80+ degree pool to try and lower my body temp. Yesterday I started feeling sick by 4 in the afternoon. Too hot too quickly.
It hit 30C (at least) here. We went with friends to the "Fantasy in the Forest" art show north of here. Then we headed up to Merrickville, in the Ottawa Valley - where it's hotter! In and out of air conditioned shops, you really feel like you've walked in to an oven when you step outside. We left the restaurant and got into the car just as a huge shower came down - but it ended really fast.
Still hot today. Got ceiling fan going, but we haven't used the a/c in years. I wonder how much hotter we'd be without all the trees.
What ever I do in the yard, I do before 8 in the morning.
Hubby sleeps in the basement during the summer because it's cooler. I'd sleep there, too, but the basement is actually our son's room and he'd rather I not. Imagine, a teenager not wanting his mother to sleep in his room. He doesn't want his father in there, either, but we've yet to get him to understand that.
If it gets really hot, I douse my clothes with water.
