Here we are not even 7 days later, and it has been cool and rainy, good for the gardens, but I saw Rusty the chipmunk today and he was bouncing across the grass rather than scampering as he normally does - must not like getting his feet wet, but it was silly to see!
And yes, the grass underfoot kinda went splash as I walked across it to put out birdseed!
How's everyone else who was in the H&H doldrums last week?
Temperature has been in the 70s, low 80s, low humidity, around here the last few days. Lovely!
We had a couple of days break - very low humidity and one day in the 70's and the other in the low 80's. It's warming back up and getting sticky again - I could really feel the difference in the air when I walked outside this morning. A couple of cool and breathable days was better than none tho and I feel like I earned it. I came off a 3-day extra brutal migraine in time to enjoy the cooler air. Haven't had a head-banger like that in years, and it actually sent me to the walk in clinic Wednesday morning when I couldn't get in to see my doctor. A shot for the pain and a pill for the nausea, and 2 prescriptions later - it finally eased up by the following morning. Don't want my head to go there again any time soon...............:(
We're having a cool summer, which is unusual but nice for a change. In July the "heat waves" have lasted for one day each. The second one comes in August, so we'll see. The partly sunny days or even sunny ones with cooler air are wonderful!
Today and tomorrow the forecast is for showers and a HIGH of +15 and 16 respectively! That's about 58 and 59F.
This week has been what I think of as normal summer weather - hot but not too bad, rain at night, thunder, but nothing catastrophic. How is it where everyone else is?
The weather has been MUCH more tolerable here than it was - a few days were absolutely perfect - clear bright skies, fluffy clouds, low humidity, a nice breeze and actually somewhat chilly first thing in the morning. The afternoons still warm up enough to leave the a.c. set to run if it's needed, but it's running a whole lot less than it was.
Today's been rather cloudy and rain is in the forecast for tomorrow. At least we didn't get the torrential rains that Philly got a couple of nights ago - upwards to almost a foot in some areas. My house in NC got some wicked rains the day before that too - roads and bridges washed out in the town where I'll be living - people being cut off and no way out of their homes, cars washed into rivers, etc. and at least one drowning. My house is at the end of a dead-end street and at the bottom of a hill several miles outside of the town, and my niece said the water running down the street looked like a raging river. No flooding at the house tho, except some standing water at the back of the property line, and what runs down the road just keeps going and drops down another hill.
Here's a pic of the house, tho it's not very big since I can't get a good one off of Google, but you can see a little of the dropoff on the right side.
Hopefully the roads are passable agin for you!
The weather here the past couple days has been nice - upper seventies, maybe 80 - so some people are thinking it is too cold! ;)
Karen I couldn't live healthy without a/c. I have it on day and night when it's needed. We have had a very hot and humid summer here in NJ and I get physically ill when it's that hot so yes, I need the a/c. When we have a cool day which hasn't happened much this summer, I do open windows and Autumn loves that. Unfortunately most of this summer the windows have been closed, I just can't take the heat.
Well, today it has rained so much, the back yard is a pond! We have had relatively nice weather all week, then today it was absolutely pouring, and when I checked weather.com just out of curiosity, it said, "Light rain" - duh! We had downpours!
I run a/c starting in April and would find it horrible without one. Although this summer has not been hot hot, it has been wet and humid and warm/hot and I would be miserable without an a/c. Wonderful invention!!!
Had to bump this up, I love when this happens:
I go to weather.com, and it says:
Current temperature: 83° (feels like 84°)
Today's (predicted) high: 79°
You'd think they would have a way to programatically bump up the "projected high" when the actual temperature passes it!
Present temps in Indy Hotter than blue blazes.
High: 93° F
Low: 72° F
Feels Like: 100° F
Barometer: 29.92 in
Wind: W 17 mph
Sunrise: 7:09 am
Sunset: 8:21 pm

7:15 PM... it's 80F, but 69% humidity. Not too hot but sticky.
We're having another heat wave, the temperatures have been up to 30C all week but the humidity is what's keeping everyone down. I keep praying the a/c doesn't decide to break down, that would be a real catastrophy-- it's new but anything can happpen when you least expect it. And with the kind of humidity and heat we're having I think I'd be off to a cooling center in less than an hour.
We're expecting hail tonight, who knows, the forecasters have been so wrong all week about everything. After 8:30 am it's impossible to be outside, so I hope we get relief soon.
Shouldn't complain because if this breaks we could be freezing like 2 weeks ago when we were hitting below 0.
