JayCT , not kidding. Its one of the downfalls of having new insulation, walls and windows i guess. By the time the outside air cools down after 6pm its not enough time to cool down a stuffy warm house. Its 50s outside but inside stays 70s. sucks but I dont mind, I like that fresh cold air. You're right though, ceiling fan could be a good investment. But then again for just a few bucks a night I prefer fresh cold air. Lol

HeadedWest , you know what, You're so right!! It's probably why i cannot tolerate anything above 77...but then again, I would go out in shorts as a kid in the snow so maybe the heated house I grew up in was the cause. Plus my wife loved 100 degrees and she lived with the a/c, fan and cold rooms. :-) I think its almost being struck by lightning why I hate heat. I swear i'm like the sun...if you come 2 feet from me you'll feel the heat come off me. Lol.. I'm 5'7" 175lbs always active, never sitting for more then an hour. Go figure.

I understand. Maybe you should consider getting an attic fan. We have one and it is great for those days when it is warm during the daytime and cool at night. You have to tolerate the noise it makes though but it is a great way to keep the AC off outside the warm summer months. Jay

yeap..considered it. I was at Costco and saw a solar powered attic fan that cools an attic space of 1300sq ft. $240 not bad...I just dont have the time to install it with all the projects i got going on. But yes, something worth doing for sure.

Rain for a week straight ?? I dont want to believe it. Maybe 3 days but 5 days?? Disgusting. I was liking the April showers and May flowers setup. We had enough rain in April!

Oh no!! I didnt mean to type "next week" it should have read in 2 weeks. Sorry! Not next week, the week after we should see 80s.

Possible Tropical development

Model is showing a possible development in the gulf in which it moves up the coast around May 21st. Water temps in Gulf are 80+ already so we'll have to watch.

HMM, well I believe the only JUNE tropical system to make it this far north as something substantial was Agnes in 1972 (lots of rain and flooding throughout the Northeast, and didn't drop from a Cat 1 to a tropical storm until just south of New York City (which the center went directly over)). Sorry but tropical storms in this region are mostly an August thru October thing.

Good to know I wasn't going nuts...the pollen situation *is* abnormal this year! Hope the rains bring some relief soon.

Who said anything about the storm being "tropical" up this way?? Of course it wont. Water temps are still in the 50s/60s on the East coast. I said it devlops in the Gulf as a Tropical system.

1st frame says it all: in the Gulf picking up a ton of moisture. It moves ENE over Florida and off the coast of Carolinas. At hr252 its a 1000mb Low about 200 miles SouthEast of Long Island.
