HELP! I'm Melting!

It has been so hot here!! 102 on Thursday, 100 yesterday, and 100 today - the first time we've had that many consecutive days of 100 degree heat in about 20 years.

I've been doing nothing but trying to keep cool. Luckily we have air conditioning and I've been hibernating as much as possible. But I still feel tired from the heat. It's even too darned hot to make soap - now you know it's hot!

Tomorrow it will be 90 and then down in the 70's for the rest of the week. Back to normal - YEAH!

And that's the weather report for Vancouver, WA. Tune in tomorrow, same time, same station!

Bless your heart!
It's been warmer than normal down here in California and alot muggier too!
We even had a very rare thunder and lightening storm the other night...we definitely are not used to that!

Glad that your temps will be cooling off so that you can get back to making soap!!

my goodness! here in iowa, we are enjoying a temporary respite from our usual summer swelter but we know it will be back in time for the labor day weekend. a lot of fall fastivals and tractor shows, throwing dirt and dust into the air. gotta have some sweat to stick to you right......

Oh, I feel for you, Kay! We had a few weeks of that 100+ stuff and I didn't think I was going to make it through that! :(
It's a little cooler now, but humid because we finally got rain. I am sooo ready for fall!!

Can you feel me fanning you? ~smile~

Kay, I love the soap! I used it and just enjoyed the scent so much.

I can't thank you enough!

Hi Kay, WOW.... I never knew it got so hot in Washington. I live in Texas and we have terribly hot summers,but right now we are getting a little cooler weather. Very much a blessing indeed!!
Glad it is back to normal for you.

The beach was very cool....and it's nice to be back home after the heat passed through! :)
We don't have air cond. So life slows way, way down!! Even the cats go flat! :)
That soap sounds like it smells wonderful!

And I thought we had it bad in Florida!!!! We have the mid 90's here, but also have that awful humidity with it. NEVER the 100's though. People have a way of thinking that if they are hot, we must be HOTTER here, but it ain't always so! Wish we would get some 70's again. Looking forward to tht. Keep cool, drink a lot, and keep that air conditioning going!

I know what you mean! Here in central California we've had sweltering heat for so long. I think one day it was 92 and I rejoiced. I've found myself even running through the sprinklers when no one is looking cause it's so hot!

Whew! Heat wave!
It has been miserable here this week.... temps in the lower 90's but the humidity is 120 percent! Ugh
