Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Monday

Sounds sorta like our weather, Beaver, except our overnight low rarely goes below 80°. :?

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Tuesday

It's going to be 111* tomorrow but supposed to maybe get thunderstorms on Wednesday and cooler temps by Thursday, down to 105*. So tired of the heat. Can't wait to see my electric bill this month since last month it was almost 200.00. Ugh, Phoenix sucks from June through at least September. We've had excessive heat warnings for over a week. If I didn't own my house and could actually sell it, I probably would. Seems the older I get, the less I like the heat. I'm just hoping for a little relief from the heat later in the week.

I would kill for 60* right now. Our ground water temp is so high, you don't need any hot water mixed with the cold to take a shower. If I could take a cold shower, I would be the happiest person on earth. The only relief from the heat is the A/C. The temp is set to 79 and last month my bill was 180.90. My house is newer, 2006 but only 1200 sq feet. A lot of people I know are paying over 300.00 for electricity because of the heat, but their houses are larger than mine. This is usually our rainy season but storms have been few and far between so we're having record heat advisories. If it would just cool down at night, like So Cal, I would be so grateful. I just have to live with it and hope for cooler temps.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Tuesday

We usually have a hot spell during the summer, but this summer for us has been unusual on multiple levels. It started off with being the wettest on record with 14 inches of rain in two weeks. Since then it went the opposite direction with very little rain and very high temps. It is now considered one of the dryest summers on record and one of the hottest summers on record.

This is the hottest summer since 1938 and the dryest since 1947 as to which a good portion of the state burned in the Fire of '47. This past winter was also one of our warmest winters going back to 1968 and one of least amount of snowfall going back to 1962. So our lakes, pond, rivers, streams are a lot lower than they should be for this time of year. Usually we have some snowpack to fill them up in the spring and that did not happen this year. We had the 14 inches of rain at the beginning of summer which left as quickly as it came.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Tuesday

This has been a very strange year, weather-wise. I'm not a fan of the cold, or snow for that matter, except for skiing, but this heat is really getting to me this year. I feel like I've been hibernating since June. It's a very tough year, all across the country and I'm afraid we may not have seen the worst. I've seriously been contemplating going to a hotel/motel just to get a cool shower. That's pretty bad but hey, what can you do. If it doesn't rain or cool down in the next couple of days, I probably will be hitting a hotel, it truly is that bad. We have a lot of quail and jack rabbits around here and for some reason they seem to really like my and my neighbors yard. My neighbors Yellow Bell plant died and I feel sorry for the quail and rabbits as they love the flowers from that plant. The quail come over my back wall from the dry river bed behind me. They have little ones with them now and I'm guessing they probably didn't have to sit on their nests much. The poor rabbits dig down through the rock down into the dirt and lay there with their back feet behind them trying to get some relief from the heat. It looks cute but then I remember when the temps cool down they start eating my Lantana because the tender vegetation gets scarce. Oh well, I can only pray for rain at this point. I'm sure I'm probably not worse off than others so I hope the weather starts cooperating all across the country.

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Humpday

At least the sun is not in full force today. Light haze but so far it's only 90*, dew point 64 and humidity is 43%. That the highest the humidity has been for quite a while. With that dew point, swamp coolers won't work so everyone will be using their A/C today. I don't have a swamp cooler, mostly older homes have those. If we actually get rain, I'm contemplating putting on my bathing suit and showering in the back yard...

Here is a job that nobody will want. I would not want to explain this one to the Massachusetts State Police Commercial Vehicle Unit. This job is one that really is going to stink.

The Cape Cod Express truck was carrying mayonnaise and salad dressing. Police at the scene said there were no injuries."

Re: Goooood Morning SHR - Humpday

I must have been tuned into the wife's attitude.

Went to the grocery store and there were cars parked in the fire lane and one car parked opposite that so that nobody could make a right hand turn. You would have to turn left go over one lane to back track two lanes. Well if that did not tick me off way more than a little. So much so that I decided to go up and speak my mind to this driver.

I got her to roll her window down and then I let her have it. I told her she needed to move her car to a parking space. This is already a dangerous parking lot. People already can't turn right because of your car parked here. So you have two choices, either park it in a parking space or I can call Bridgton PD and they can force you to do it with a summons for a parking violation. And if you think those Massachusetts plates will help you as being a tourist, you are mistaken. So move it. Afterwards, there was an applause on the sidewalk by many and a couple of people said they would have liked to have said those things, but their wives would not let them.

Oh, and she moved her car.
