I’m writing this post from my living room (nothing unusual here), but I won’t lie…I’m sitting in the least amount of clothes possible, which is still quite a bit because I have nosey kid neighbors who peer into my living room door window. I’m not going to say I’m swealtering or that I feel like I’m in Hades….but I am warm.
This fine graphic (provided by weather.com, spruced up by me) gives you an idea of how hot it is here. It’s 96 degrees! 96!!
I have to laugh because I’ve had a couple of my bloggy friends ask me over the past few days, “Do people even use air conditioners up there?” Do the people in Florida who are enjoying their 87 degree weather have air conditioners?? HECK YES! I myself don’t have one, but I can tell you my neighbor above me has theirs on 90% of the time, my mother keeps hers on all the time and of course my dungeon at work is air conditioned (even in the winter!). Apparently even Canada is even baking, and we all know they live in igloos year round.
Anyway, I appreciate the heat. It’s an excuse for:
Keeping the sunroof open while blaring my new favorite CD (The Band Perry, in case if I haven’t mentioned it enough this week)
Sitting on my porch with an ice cold beer and a good book
Laying under the sun
And when else can you go swimming? Definitely not when it’s 10 degrees out! Or can you…?
And just in case if you forgot what record snowfall was like…
So three cheers for summer and super hot temperatures! I’d rather be sweating than drenched in snow!
What is YOUR favorite thing to do when the temperatures are high??
