Last week it was a purfect upper 60's lower 70's all week. Now, it's 89 degrees with 60% humidity outside. Tonight the humidity is going up to 75%. Good pool warming weather but bad for outdoor fun.
It's hard to explain Mom's job, she's office support/ her dept. data entry person but on the plant floor. Which means in the heat, with fans pushing hot air in her face all day long. And don't even get her started on humidity and Mosquitoes. Mom choose 11 years ago to make a bunch of money on the floor over being able to be cool and pretty in the office. She even has better benefits too. But the heat about kills her every summer. Her Doc. said she suffers from seasonal depression and taught her how to cope with it. Look it up Summer seasonal depression is real and there is some good tidbits you can learn to help. One is to stay in a dark room, crazy huh?
So, just like our snowed in friends during the winter, I will report how our weather is doing. Technically, this is all a good thing for us cause unless she's in the pool at Grandma and Grandpas she's with us hiding in the house.
P.S. Mom went out on the boat this morning with Dad and Diamond. She said it was fine as long as there was wind in her face. As usual she got a little burnt though. She said that the water is getting warm.
Daddy says to tell yous mom hes understands!!! His truck has NO A/C...ands its gets HOT in de city in summer!!!
WE HATE when it's hot!! Luckily, we have a great air conditioner!! Luv, Tink
We'll trade you! My mommy gets MEGA depressed in the winter and even today it's back to being cloudy, 52 and cold. It's very raw and because she has bad fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue she hates this weather, it hurts. She needs the sun! We'll trade!!!! One day of sun in 2 weeks is not enough for us.
Mom says no ac and stop lights are the worst! She says Convertibles are worthless till 6 pm. She had a Jeep when she first got with Dad and she would put the top down for the ride into work which was great but OMG in the afternoons. Just too dang hot. Same as riding motorcycles. Stop lights are so dreaded.
Mom says it's not bad as long as it's not humid, that's her tipping point. She feels so bad for people farther south than her.
Tink, glad you guys got ac to keep you cool.
Mom has always joked that she should have been born in Seattle. She loves that grey rainy feel over the stifling heat down here.
Zach told Mom to "man up, that it's only the end of May!" Mom said "don't remind me"
Mom just had to turn the heat on for a couple of minutes, it's so cold and raw in here!
84 with 72% humidity...daddy's gettin readys to puts in the 2nd a/c unit!!! 2nd floor apt in a 2 story bldg gets really stuffy at times!!!
SERIOUSLY! You guys come up here! why are you living in hot climates if you don't like it? We stay up here because of money and because of gram and gramps. Plus NH is a beautiful state. We just hate it in the winter and most of early spring.
I stay here cause of my job and my family. I would love to visit New England area. Mom was in Cape Cod once but it was for a wedding and she was 17 at the time. So there wasn't a lot of sight seeing.
OMC Mom and Dad went to Gatlinburg TN. three Aug.s' ago, thinking it would be cooler and dang it was hot up there too. What's crazy is, Oh you guys are going to love this, (your talking about 5 or 6 hours from home)Mom and Dad was walking down the street in Gatlinburg and a guy on a Harley with two other bikes screamed out Mom's name. You should have seen Dads face. He was like "who in the ... and of course Mom had no answer cause she didn't know who it was either. Anyway, Dad shook it off. Two months later a friend that Mom used to work with said it was him. Crazy huh?
Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge is the Myrtle Beach of the mountains.
We're finally enjoying some nice weather here in WI. All the windows are open and the storm door now has the screen instead of the glass.
Hopefully we won't have to put the heat back on for a few months!
Hey fellow Packer fan, I hope you don't have to turn the heat back on. My wish is that everybody is happy and comfortable.
Even though, I know some of us will be to hot to enjoy our summers.
That humidity sounds pawful! We have no complaints about our weather living in Catifornia, but Mom used to visit her in-laws in Florida during the winter and even then it was very uncomfortable because of the humidity. She wouldn't dream of setting foot there in the summer time, it was already too warm for. It's nice that your pawrents have a boat to go out on the water. Stay cool!
Mom says Florida is bad during the summer. You get afternoon showers that cool you down for about two seconds and then it gets even more steamy till night. But, Mom and Dad love Florida for Disney World and The Universal Studios.
it is very hot here. the storms from yesterday cooled us down some. wont stay that way for long.
OMC Giiiirrrl I missed this Diary, how did that happen I always look for your diaries. I was just thinking last night that Zach writes more than you do MOL seems like I was wrong.
The weather has been pretty nice for us this time of year, it is usually in the 3 digits by next month and it last until the end of August, but currently our highs have been 80 or high 70's and the hummidity has been realy low for us.
Stay cool my BFF TTUL
