Gee, I bought gas early this morning for my mower - was 88 when I left, 92 when I got back from a short walk with enough time to pump one gallon. I'm thinking more about a few gallons of weed killer on the grass, not sprinklers!

I lived in socal all my life up to two years ago. With the exception of the years I lived a quarter mile from the beach (where its moderate but very damp) I lived in areas that had hot summers. I learned that mid day is the time to be somewhere in air conditioning. The humidity here is a little different, but I still hate the heat. I am sitting at my computer in front of my ac... When the metal front door feels hot its a no go outside time.

And YES, lets save some of that ice and cold air in December for now. If not, I still would take winter with four layers over this.

Geez, I can't wait to see my water bill. I've really been pumping it to the lawn just trying to keep it from getting crunchy!

I'm just happy it will not be growing at a foot a minute. My goal is more big flower planters, less lawn. A drip hose will do wonders in weather like this too since it doesn't run anything off. During the water restrictions when I lived out in socal we had a lawn thanks to buried drip hoses. Going to use that in my planters.

Yeah, we actually installed a drip system in our front flower beds last summer. They are just under the surface of the soil and the mulch. It does work wonderfully. Unfortunately, we have a huge yard, so even with some really big beds, we still have a lot of grass.

Bet my yard's bigger.

This is ridiculous. I just checked weather underground and they say it's a few decimals over 97, but my shady deck thermometer still says 103. And it's nearly 7 PM.

This is my 3rd summer in, 4th counting the summer of 2007 when I got here, but it's the first summer where the humidity got to me. I hope next summer isn't like this.
One good thing is, when the temp, drops even a few %'s it's very noticable. Is that me or are you all like that?

I notice any drop in temp, too. Fortunately, the drops are more noticeable than the rises, up to a point anyway.

The first summer I was away from the midwest I lived on the Pacific in a little town where if it got up to 50 in the summer, people wore shorts with their winter coats. Then 31 years in a place where if it reached 60, everyone wilted from the heat, and the humidity was always high enough to make you feel like you were breathing pea soup.

Now, if it gets down to the high 80s, it's a cool day no matter what the humidity is.
