I am very excited for this mid-80 degree weather coming up! It's supposed to be summer!

Supposed to be mid to high 70s up here, which is fine by me. Well, ideally it would be no more than 60-65, but I'll take mid 70s over mid 80s.

Agreed. I'd be happy with upper 70's being the hottest it gets here for that very issue. Once it gets into the 80's, it gets uncomfortable inside without AC and it doesn't cool down enough by bed time to make it comfortable to sleep. Not looking forward to these mid-80's days to be honest...

It will cool down during the night, but it also depends on your housing, where it's located/facing (west facing sucks a lot of times), how well it's sealed, et. c. You'll notice a lot of open windows.

I agree......We rent a house in Ballard, so unfortunately we cannot make any structural changes like putting a screen door up front or adding AC or changing out windows. All of our south facing windows are huge giant picture windows that do not open. So even when we open the others we don't get a good cross-breeze at all. We kept our windows open all summer last year, slept with them open every night and took off the blankets on the beds. The top two floors are the hottest, the basement is fully finished and is the coolest so we are down there more. I've found that we are often just out and about a lot during the summer and it's cooler at the parks and beaches than in the house. It's funny, on the first hot day that hits in the summer, you'll see swaths of people at Lowe's and Home Depot grabbing window fans and window ACs......

This is why I resisted moving to the East for my first job after college graduation. Sure you might get a good resume bump, but at what cost? People get used to conditions everywhere, but sometimes it is just easier.

It's 108 in St. Louis today, and the 8th day in a row of triple digit heat. The overnight low was 81 - I mean seriously, you can't even really jog comfortably at sunrise. Sounds pretty nice out there in Seattle.

Yeh, St. Louis is a good intro to hell within this lifetime. Anywhere with a breeze off the sea would be vastly better.
