Reading that gives me heatstroke and sunburn sympathy pains.

No sunscreen is truly sweat or water proof. The key is to constantly reapply.

It's been nearly 100, or 100, for several days in the last few weeks. We are getting a break today, with a nice wind blowing... but I have no problem with high heat. We are outside everyday.

EDIT - anyway, you got my hopes up... but unfortunately, we aren't due to be over 95 within the next 10 days.

Well, I spent 15 years in the FL sun and I was a lifeguard for 4 summers during my college years....oh, and I was on the swim team.......lots of sun exposure! Most people think I'm 10 years younger than I am and can't believe I have a 26 year old child.

It's just a matter of taking care of your skin.....sounds like Jenbar will be ok.

Smoking is the worst thing you can do for your skin.....will age you without a doubt. Who wants to smell like smoke anyway.....yuck.

You do need to leave FL.....sounds like there is nothing you like about it. I bet you're counting the days......just like I am until I see some sunshine. But at least I do like some things about Seattle in the meantime.....makes the waiting more bearable.

21 days to go!!!!! You see, I grew up in Anchorage , Alaska (31 years)
lived in Europe, NC, Ga, Az and Md. before that. But this southern heat and humidity I've never been able to adjust to. So I'm ready for a change...

I'm having a hard time today.

My son's birthday is sunday and when were in Calif, the parties were outside - but this sunday it's cold and showers, just like today, just li ke everyday this week.

It's hard. It's hard going to weather.com to see what our weather is in the 10 day forecast then going to my old home (95816) and she it's nothing but 80s and sun.

May and June are really hard for me to endure.

But I'm trying.

Oh no...don't look at the forecast from back home! I do that too sometimes and find it to be sheer torture.

I finally am experiencing what I've read on your posts about May and June....it just drags on way to long. I guess those few nice weekends had me fooled.

Glad to hear you won't have to spend another hot summer in FL....if it's not for you, it can be difficult. You certainly have lived in enough places to know what you like. Good luck with your move.

At least when it has been nice it has been on the weekends! COME ON MID-JULY...or at least that's what they tell me. When I moved here last July 21 it was 55 and raining....which is my tag line now when people from TX call me.
