Definitely already thought of that. I was trying to keep my step count up to what it was in previous years. In April and May I was able to do that, but now, not so much.

Ditto! I've always thought I should be a sunbird but Australia is a little too far away...

I never said it's a heat wave .
People sure like to put words in your mouth or ignore the words you said.
And I've been right here in NYC all those years.

I went to Australia for a summer years ago and boy was I disappointed that it was their winter and cold.
But you would probably like it. Someday when travel resumes look into it, Australia is beautiful.

I appreciate winter weather, I think that for the most part, people should tune into the weather changes that are relevant to their environment. That said, I sympathize with people who hold difficult jobs outdoors like building skyscrapers on windy, bitterly cold days or the opposite.

I like summer weather like crazy though. I tend to forget the smells, the sight of greenery after having gone through a winter on a grey day in March. The Springtime blows me away, but really, the hot weather is parfect.


I just checked and the temps are the same in my small town South of Montreal and New York today 82F, but the humidity hikes our felt temperature to 99 degrees and this afternoon 88F, felt 106. But hey, I am glad I am in this instead of January at -15F.

Yesterday was a walk to Cherry Valley (to return my beer cans) and a stroll to buy some things at Dollar Tree. I got tired and hot so I walked back to Cherry Valley to buy sone Coors and thought I would take the Free M15 South 3 stops to my house.

Waiting 30 minutes in the full sun had me heat exhausted...first time this year. I'd have been better off walking than taking the bus.

Glad to get home to the Arctic Air, my recliner, and 74 degrees.

Hate the heat, hate the misquitos. My work from home situation is good enough that I won't be outside for much more than groceries until the fall. My electric bill has been low this year though. Our building supposedly splits it evenly amongst tenants (at least the lease says so), and I'm paying like 1/3 of what I was at my past place yay housing lottery.

Exactly. When it's really humid, my bedroom AC shrugs & behaves more like a fan so I have to move my desk really up close to it for me to feel cool. At least the living room AC works great. Funny. The living room AC is 20 or so years older than my bedroom AC and yet it's so much better.

Everything people do, in a loop, is complain.

When it rains they hate it, it snows or it's cold in the winter, they can't wait for summer time, then summer time comes, they complain...

I love every single season, I love extremely hot summer days (matter of fact I love NY summers), as much as I love cold winters and snowstorms, as I am delighted to see the trees turn orange and red in the Fall.

Thank you mother nature.
