Should We Talk About The Weather?

The Hot, Angry SunThere is something decidedly wrong with my weatherpixie. She is telling me that it is 73 degrees out, and I would like to know where she bought the crack she has obviously smoked. It is a solid 95 degrees out today. And its bloody humid too. I tried to lay out in the sun for a little while during Princess's nap, and I think I melted. I lasted 30 minutes, which felt like 3 hours, and all I have to show for it so far is red skin from overheating and some new freckles. NJ has already had 5 days over 90 degrees in June, which officially qualifies as a heat wave, and its not supposed to go under 90 until at least Thursday, when it will dip to a brisk 85. Break out the parkas.

Edit: I forgot to mention that our air conditioning is not working. It is blowing out warm air. It feels like actual hell at my house.

93? Damn, it's in the 50's here in PEI, accompanied by a light bit of rainfall. I'm really dreading having to return to Ontario, it's around 80-90 there as well. :(

There has been nothing 75ish in New Jersey the last few days. I have sweat, sweat, and then sweated again. YUck!

our weather here has been terrible for about a week, we did have a severe thunder storm earlier and it's suppose to break later in the week. i actually have a weather girl living with me, and my a/c is working, ummmmmmm, probably not what you wanted to hear. maybe a nice warm shower followed by an ice tea would perk you up!

Twist of Kate said...

Yes, it's quite warm here in Cali and I'm in the VALLEY, which is just another word for Hell. I feel ya, but I have air conditioning, I just refuse to use it because it costs too much and I'm thrifty! Stay COOL, Girl!

Rik said...

Here's what i did one year when my A/C went out. Get yourself 5 (dry) t-shirts and put them in the freezer. Leave them in there as long as possible. Get one out and put it on. When you can't stand it anymore exchange it for a new one, putting the old one back in the feezer. Repeat. As for Princess, if she can reach the freezer, but a couple of onesies in there for her too.

Indigo said...

I've got the same heat wave going on over here. At least my a/c is working. I hope you get yours fixed soon!

Our weather man posted the "I'm going on vacation for the rest of the summer" forecast this morning.... High 70's for lows, High 90's for highs... 20% chance of rain... and always humid. This will be the forcast for the next 3 months (unless there's a hurricane). Well... except when the 90's changes to the 100's....

So quit yer bitchin.

lol

Bumbling Bav said...

She must be doing crack, do you see how thin she is...lol.

I want the sun.... I miss the sun. This is the worst June in a long time for southern BC. Well off to the tanning beds I go.

Sorry for your hell!

Dawn said...

oooh that really sucks about the air-conditioner!

Evey said...

I am with you on the heat thing, it has been disgusting here in Boston as well. We also have no air conditioning, brutal. Then go figure, last night we went out to buy a new fan and when we got home at 11 looking forward to the cool breeze from new fan, THE POWER WAS OUT. What are the freaking chances. lol

This is a great blog JG. Love the template.

My post was about the weather too. We had a bad winter and now this heat. WTF is up with that. It should cool off soon, a cold front is coming through Ohio today. Hopefully it will reach you soon.

Katy said...

hell, at least you have air conditioning. That can be fixed. We have none!

J&J'sMom said...

Beanhead said...

I feel you pain it is 91 here with about a gazillion percent humidity. Hope you get the A/C fixed soon.

supplymadam said...

I hate this friggin humidity! What kind of cruel joke is this? I work for my A/C bill. I need my A/C. I would turn rabid if it broke.

Garnet said...

Ugh. Too hot! We have no humidity here but the heat can be unbearable anyway! Mid-80's here all week I think. STAY COOL!!!
