Heat


It has been really hot lately.  We have had day after day of 90 + degree heat.  There has even been some days in the low 100's.  The humidity is high and rain has been scarce.  Fortunately a few days ago we had over 1.5 inches of rain but that was isolated just a few areas and not state-wide.  After the rain, the temps went down for a few hours, which was a relief, but then went back up again.  People are advised to stay indoors, drink plenty of water, and avoid excessive exertion.  

When I am on vacation south of here, this sort of heat isn't so bad, in fact, it is rather expected.  But being this far north, I don't enjoy it on a regular basis.  I know it can be hot in July and August but that is usually for only a few days.  Our air conditioning unit has been running often and we have set up some fans to cool the air.  It will be a relief when we get back into the 70's.  This weather is exactly why people around here welcome fall and winter.

How do you deal with the heat?
