It's Gonna Be A Hot One!! - Page 2

post #31 of 91

So far, the weather this summer has been uncharacteristically mild... following a wetter than average winter and spring.  Today we're expecting low 90s, with lots of humidity.  "Lots" by SGV standards means about 72 or 73%.  What can I say?  It feels muggy here.  You might say, "another $#!++^ day in paradise."

 

Beautiful morning.  Clear, around 60 and very "soft," at around 6AM.  Took advantage of the loveliness, turned on the fountains, and roasted a load of coffee on the patio.

Hey BDL, I'll trade you  been in high humid  upper 90 s here for 3 weeks. I am going to try and fry an egg on the pavement to see if it sets.  And on top of that we have a water shortage. Do you believe being surrounded by water a shortage. Should have build desalization plants here 25 years ago.  Idiot politicians as usual, same as we have in Washington now.EdB

Hot, humid and miserable, that's how it's been here.  Last month we had a heatwave that included one day with temperatures over 100 and with the humidity in, felt like the 130s.  It was horrible.  We've had a few weeks were we can live without the a/c and yesterday and today have been really nice.  The low last night was 13C(55F) and it's only going to be 22C(72F) this afternoon.  It'll be warmer tomorrow but nothing like what we had in June and July. 

OK ... where am I going?.. and WHY am I in this handbasket??

I'll take the dry heat in Washington State Desert, can't take the Humidity. You couldn't pay me to live in the South, or the East coast in the summer................

In the last month and a half, it's hit triple digits every day save one. Highest temperature recorded has been 106*. And there hasn't been any rain to speak of since June. Terrible summer.

kgirl,

considering that the highs only reached the 40's 10 days ago and the peaks here got 6-8" of the white stuff, i'm pretty happy that it's warmed back up to the 70's...40's at night...beautiful indian summer shaping up here....more brillant each day....my suggestion if time and budget allows is to hop in the car and go see some of the beautiful fall colors and rejuvenate with the cooler temps...it's only an 8 hour drive to durango, which by the way was just voted the best small town to live in in colorado. if you stay in state, there's sedona...breathtaking rock formations or drive up to the white mountains...of course there's alway lake powell and the grand canyon, which are beyond words....just know that fall is definately here so winter is not far beyond....hang in there....cooler temps soon come mon!

So you have our snow... can I trade you for our heat???

 

It has been a warm winter here, and even when we went to FL in january, they were telling us there how unseasonably warm it was.  Tomorrow is going to be suppsedly 25C (77F) feeling like 29C (84F).. then if they have it right we'll go back down to near seasonable for early spring.  I'm happy that we left the downstairs a/c in for the winter.. it may just get an early use tomorrow if it gets really hot in here.

Nice pic Kgirl...

 

It wasn't as hot today as they said.. Isort of dressed for the weather (loose tunic, tights and flats) and I was fine on my way home.. now they say tomorrow is the hot one and I'm ready to go too.. skirt, top, sweater, nylons for the morning and flats again... I should be fine..  If I get motiviated I could actually finish a shirt I've been making that would be perfect for tomorrow but it all depends on what everyone wants to do after dinner... I think I will vote for doing our own thing...lol

Pretty nice, huh? 

This is one of our favorite beaches in Hawaii to go to and spend the entire day. 

But, now I’m thinking since Disney and Marriott have taken over Ko’olina,

the next time we go back we may not be able to go to the beach. 

So what we’ve been tossing around is spending a month at

the Marriott time shares and that way the beach would be right out the back door. 

No struggling for parking, lugging coolers and chairs for ever. 

AAAHHHH!  A girl can dream, a Kaneohe girl at that.

It was crazy warm last week but that's over now and March is going to go out like a lion... it did come in like a lamb and then a blast furnace so why not go out in style? 

 

I'm definitely not looking forward to getting out the snow shovel in the morning but well.. it is still March after all and I do live in Canada....

Looks like summer is coming more than a month earlier this year.  I think you and I are in for a long hot scorching summer.  To think we're about 10 degrees hotter here in the Phoenix are than you are in Tucson.  We're due 3 days of over 90 this week then we do the mighty drop 2 days later to high 60's.  Man this spring is turning out to be something really weird.

You know chefed, funny that you mention humidity, my husband and I were just talking about that yesterday.  We surely DO NOT miss that about Hawaii!!  I might have to use lotion a little more often, but I'll take that over constant perspiring.
