It's high 90's this week, with little chance of rain. It hasn't hardly rained in the last 5 weeks.
Still no rain. We don't have A/C in the whole house. We just run window units in a few rooms. One day... mini-splits.

6C right now, or 43F.

Hot enough to not need a winter coat.

Heh...left work 45 miles away from home at 4:30, it was 88f and very humid, got home by the big lake and it's 53f. I do love that big natural air conditioner.

We have a 40 fan in the hall way. Got up this morning at seven, turned it on till the inside temp matched with the outside at 64 deg.

Closed all the windows and curtains, today was HHH 94 deg with 100% humidity in southeast Ohio.

The house temp stayed ten to twelve deg cooler all day till around six in the afternoon when they matched up again at 86.

Turned on the whole house fan, opened the windows and its now 77 at 10:20 this evening.

We do the same thing with two box fans and windows in our third floor. Our high today was 95. Inside high temp, in un-air conditioned rooms, with closed curtains was 75 degrees. At 11PM it is still 85 degrees outside so windows stay closed and fans stay off.

Tomorrow it's going to be worse. High 99, heat index 105.

We've got one of those too, the Chesapeake Bay. We don't get the 30 degree swing. but we are consistently 10 degrees cooler in the summer, and 10 degrees warmer in the winter, than Washington DC (we are, give or take, 45 miles due east of DC).

Sheesh, Red! And I thought that we lived "up north"! So does that mean that you're snowmobiling in tee shirts now?

I never did it myself but I'm sure some people do.

We do get hot days but they are few and far between. July is our hottest month. June tends to be hit and miss.

At work Tuesday it was 98f and humid. The concrete floor in the shop was sweating something awful. Today it was 55. Shivering instead. But steady around 59f at home....I hope it stays this way thru the weekend!

We topped out in the high nineties today. Thanks to the folks in the midwest for sending this cold front our way. Thunderstorms tonight to break the heat!

Upper 90s to near 100 in this area today. Thankfully, we were in a garage where it was only 94.
