I just hope our power doesn't go out. Thank god for AC!
I have relatives in Van Nuys, so I looked it up and holy hellup to 109 today.
110+ down on the strip and at the airport. At least at my home in the heights it will only be 108. At least itsa dry heat with a dew point of around 40. Makes it easy to cool off if you have shade and enough water
Its too hot to think outside already.
But, take it from me - it's true.
I grew up in Michigan and I live in Nevada now. Last week, monsoons (a misnomer if there ever was one around here) came through raising the humidity level to 30% or so. I haven't felt so sticky and clammy since I lived in the Water Winter Wonderland.
It's a lot easier to take 110 degrees with low humidity than 85 ~ 90 degrees with 50% or higher humidity. I hang up laundry when it is damp and it's dry by evening - even blue jeans. I also haven't had a sinus infection in years.
My house is over fifty with original doors and windows so the indoor temp is usually the same as outside.
If it gets unbearable, as expected for Saturday and Sunday, I'll sit in the shower and read.
I function fine to 95° then I just cannot be active.
That sounds just awful. If you are a senior, ask around. If not, pretend to be one!
I didn't mean it to sound awful. For me, the heat is an excellent excuse to do nothing but read. My idea of a good time.
I was born in SoCal and I adapt to heat better than cold. Thank you for caring.
I did that during heat waves. I would sit and read and get a break from heat. It helped
Made it a joy to get up this morning.
Thatll be over by 9:30 .lol.
And so it begins...
