I am actually glad :eek: to be stuck at work where it is fully air conditioned! I spent yesterday by the pool and the dogs were lounging in the central air all day. I filled their puppy pool, but they were not interested in the least! Except for Jo, the neighbour's GS...she wanted to play with her nerf football nonstop! Had to throw her in the cool house every so often to let her rest.

Sigh. Heat wave. Heat wave is a way of life for us. :D We get some relief when the thunderstorms come (of course they don't relieve the humidity)... but once those stop around November - we are on our own. My poor husband is out mowing the lawn at the moment and I've been watching him from the comfort and safety of the a/c. Giggle.

chico, stay cool - and enjoy it as much as you can before winter comes. :)

Sigh . . . its going to rain again in southern Alberta today, thunderstorms and sub-20 degree temperatures for the next week.

On the other hand, I was out running on the highway for an hour and a half this morning and it was nice and cool.

I put in air conditioning last summer - after five years of drought - and its been raining ever since.

I kinda prefer the sub-20 degree temps. Nice & cool for long walks and playing in the yard, but not so cool that our fingers & toes go numb. This kind of heat is just gross. :yuck: The air is so thick you can chew it. It was lovely earlier in the week. The a/c was off, the windows wide open, and a beautiful breeze coming in with the birdsong. :love: Now we're all trapped inside - forced confinement for the good of our own health. :(

Ironknight- what a cute pic!!
Conjures up coolness.. :cool: .
Wow, I didnt realize it was so toasty-hot back east!
Try to stay cool, everyone. Thank goodness for a/c and pools, for those of you who are lucky enough to have these.

We here in the west have had very little summer weather so far.Intermittent sunshine, cool temps overall. I find the 20- degrees perfect myself.

No heat waves here yet. As a life long resident of Lotusland I have noticed with some humour that we in BC are often a bunch of moaners when it comes to ANY kind of "weather". (myself included)
We complain that it rains here too much.
We complain if it gets too warm, too cold, too- anything. :crazy:
And if it snows - oh-my-god.
LOL!

angie79-- exactly how I feel....

When I was in Ireland for a while, I missed the snow so much that even though I hate the feeling of snow under clothing, I swore I would roll in it when I got home. As soon as I got out of the car, I jumped right in. Like a hug from an old friend. Can't imagine a life without snow. :)

As for the heat... gives me migraines, makes me feel like crap-- I'd give that up in a minute. :D
