Heat and More Heat

The weather guys have been forecasting this heat wave and they weren't kidding! We were supposed to get to 100 today. It reached 103 in Vancouver which set a new record. It is 11 pm and still 91 degrees. Usually when we get this hot the air is very dry but it is so humid. I am blessed to have air conditioning so our house is cool. But not many people in this area have A/C as we usually don't need it. I am sure they are suffering tonight and I have been praying for them off and on all day.

Tuesday is supposed to be 105, Wednesday 103, and then we will cool down to 98 on Thursday - if you can call that a cool down. Hopefully it will really cool off by the weekend like promised.

I didn't get much done today - just stayed inside, watched TV, did some homework, and read a library book that I got last week. It will probably be more of the same for tomorrow.

I will have to run some errands tomorrow because I desperately need a belt for my vacuum. I'm also craving watermelon so I'll go to the store and stock up on things we can eat so there won't be any cooking involved. When it's this hot I don't want to cook and I don't want to eat a hot meal! Sandwiches, fruit, and raw veggies will be the menu for the next few days.

Oh, Kay! I am sooo sorry to hear that you are having this nasty heat too up in your part of the country!:(
Now you really know why I don't like it where I live. YUK! Saturday was 104 - hurts to breath in that stuff.
Right now we are a little "cooler" and had 2 days of rain.
Hope your weather goes back to normal for you very soon!
