How Hot Is It?

It’s so hot that our annual summer work bbq (which is now an “ice cream social” to save money) has been moved INDOORS. Is that irony?

It’s so hot that I didn’t even bother to blow dry my hair this morning.

It’s so hot that, for dinner last night, we had a picnic of meat, cheese and fruit on our bedroom floor.

It’s so hot that my head is pounding and my stomach is sick and all I’ve been able to eat today is a banana.

It’s so hot that public libraries are closing because they don’t have air conditioning and the heat levels inside are nearing “dangerous”.

It’s so hot that I thought the poor lady who bought the VERY LAST FAN at Rite Aid last night was going to get mugged on the way to her car.

It’s so hot that I can’t even contemplate having a cup of coffee. And that just pisses me off.

It’s so hot that I have worn nothing but skirts and dresses all week. I miss my blue jeans. And my sweatshirt.

It is so hot that we can’t even think about anything else. It’s all we talk about, think about and complain about. Oh, there a few people (like my mother, who doesn’t even live here) who absolutely love it. No one is really talking to them, though. It was fun to hit a new record, but okay, we’re done with it now. Let’s get back to that cold, dreary weather we all love so much.

Oh! According to, it looks like we might get some showers on August 7! Woohoo!

We've had rain for 3 days now - sure wish I could send it up to you all! Can't get a damn thing done around here. . . . .

Don't you guys have iced coffee out there in Seattle?!

Oh, Kristin, we have iced coffee (it's not the same), popsicles, ice packs, frozen fruit and anything else you can think of. You should see the ice cream shelves in the stores. Empty. Those cabinets outside the grocery stores where they keep the bags of ice? Empty. It's like the end of days.

I'm with your mom - I like it hot. No cold and dreary weather for me! But I do understand how you guys wouldn't like it and even I have to admit upper 90's and over 100 degrees is too hot! You'll be back to rainy and cloudy before you know (which I could not live in, by the way). Stay cool!

Oh, and one more thing - it's never too hot for coffee!! :)
