It's 8:00 here and 105 and I'm whining

View from My Window Sunrise 5:30

It's 8:11 PM here in Buckeye AZ and it got to 112 today. It's still 105.  Once Summer decided to get here this year, it hit with a vengeance. It's not cooling off this week much either. It's dark outside my window now but the heat rushed in when I let the dogs out a few minutes ago. I used to get annoyed by people who talked about where they came from but geez, it use to cool down in CA. I needed a sweater at night for pete's sake! 100 degrees at night is NOT OK.
Then I think about earthquakes, a tornado last month; the Tornadoes in the MidWest; The flooding in WI and Iowa and I guess I can handle the heat.

They've changed the start date of Monsoon this year. It started yesterday (June 15th) instead of the 3rd day of 55% dew point (which usually happens in July). So we're officially in Monsoon :) Technically that means we should be cooling off to 100 or so. NOT.

I'm whining tonight, I know; I get bitchy when it's hot; so Paul and I decided to move to an oven. He apparently decided he hadn't suffered enough our first 25 years together. 

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog today.

oh ...how can you take that day in and day out!! You're right, at least we cool down here in the evenings, except those rare times when it is over 110 during the day.

I hope you find some relief!

LOL Sandy! Yes we moved to a frikkin oven. This year we had a beautiful spring... Ha ha ha Too bad I don't remember that much about it!

Oh Betty, but you live is such a nice Oven :-)
Luckily for me we havent had the flooding here in Green Bay, its all been to the South of us, but yesterday's high for us was about 70 and todays will be about 73, i'll take it any day of the week. I think of you and your "oven" often at this time of year. But dont worry, soon you'll be bragging to me :-)

Thats hot, but I always heard it was a dry heat, LOL. We made it to 101 Sunday, but not above 90 today, we had a nice rain.

Betty I'm sitting here freezing all rugged up...could we swap a little weather?

Mima said...

I'd do a swap too, it is supposed to be mid-summer here, and I am still using a hot water bottle every day so I don't have to put the heating on, and our summers are not supposed to be like this. Global warming appears to have gone mad. What it is going to be like in a few years is anybodies guess, hopefully it will settle down into some sort of pattern.

Sorry to hear about your oven though, it does sound very hot, not sure I would cope very well under those conditions!

Betty Flocken said...

LOL Yeah I know it's a dry heat.. Just like an oven cooks using dry heat! If you stay in the water and out of the sun; you're doing ok. I'm checking on local homeless shelters today. They usually ask for Water donations. Sabby and I are going to "give back" together. I would love to trade with many of you today. Thanks for your comments everyone. Cooled down to 113 today.. from 115. This is Phoenix; and why homes are 800k around these parts. :)
