My new phone (the droid with no name), chirps whenever I get weather updates. For the past few days, it has been trying to chirp its speaker off. There have been quite a few “Heat advisories”. I’m very curious about what makes it a heat advisory. Do they have these in places that normally get hot? Do the deserts in the SW have one every day of the Summer?
I realize that the heat can be dangerous. If you don’t get enough water, or if you push yourself too hard, heat related illness can be deadly. But I know people survived many years without air conditioning, without ice water and other cooling refrigerated beverages. How did they do that? (heavy sarcasm…)
Me, myself and I slow myself down on days like today. It may take me twice as long to do something. No need to push myself on the hot days. Days like today are mad for sitting in the shade waiting for that next breeze.
Hot summer days, and warm summer nights. Savor them, you will want them in January.

Yeah… always a draw back to each season. 90+ degree weather with Heat Index of 100 would be one. Common sense is the rule for those days… whatever common sense is 😉
As my dear old dad would tell me, “Common sense isn’t common.” This didn’t prevent him from expecting me to have it, in spades. The most annoying thing about ridiculously high heat, to my mind, is air conditioning. Apparently commercial air conditioning has two settings: “Off,” and “Arctic-freeze-your-lower-extremities-off.” Our office, and most public buildings, have it set to the latter. So, as I am sitting inside my office, chained to my desk, peering out the tiny, high-up windows, it’s just adding insult to injury. I *know* it’s 90+ degrees outside. Logically, my brain is aware of this. But my body is still telling me that it’s 60 or so, just like in January. So I sigh, grumble, and pull my sweatshirt back on.
So fun working outside in this heat- not. Tomorrow should be cooler though- only mid 80s. But you’re right- in January we will long for the heat of summer.
I most definitely agree with that. I have arguments between the air at home and my spouse, who can’t understand why I just can’t be comfortable. 🙂
Yes – 3 days of over 90-degree heat for our camping trip. I am so thankful that we changed our reservations from the place with the small cabin with no bathroom to the large air-conditioned house! Needless to say, we did not get to spend too much time in the hot tub, and when we did, we tried putting ice cubes in it which melted immediately.
