The AC is set at 74 and running for 5, off for 10 mins, so I think it
should manage. Just keeping the humidity down is a blessing.
If I do an all house emergency generator, I want that included.
That's really the only thing I have some concerns about, the grid. As
long as it fragments, like it didn't during the last black-out.
You and yours stay cool too.
Ay least we got a breeze! The humidity was 97% a few mornings ago and at
least that left for the heat wave. The breeze and the lower humidity brings
the humidex down to a cool 45 C (113 foreignheat) . Gives me a good excuse
not to get out and move granular compaction materials, by shovel, for the
next few days.
Thank Gawd I used WD-40 on the wheelbarrow wheels though.

Just hoping my A/C can keep up with it, stay cool. :-)

Not quite as hot here (yesterday peak of 89 degrees with 98% humidity
peak) but it's not fun sawing up a felled tree before starting on a
new fence in this weather.
I'm not complaining though. At least I don't have to shovel sunshine!
And yes, I will be adding water to the cement as it's been dry for
over a month. Normally when I did a hole it fills up with water...
not this time.
though it was said to be 122. Didn't feel a degree over 119 to me.
Can remember summer days like that when I was still in Ohio.
Solution was simple.
Drive to boat yard, prep the boat then head out into Lake Erie, 5
maybe 10 miles.
Stop engine and let boat drift.
Tether myself to boat, then jump over board wearing a life jacket and
clutching a cold one.
Gives you a whole different perspective of the world.
Bobbing around in the water, with little more than your head exposed,
you begin to understand what a pimple on the ass of humanity you
really are in the grand scheme of things.
Too many times lately that we have vacationed in Holland in July or so,
it was almost as hot there as it is now here. Since there is a dearth of
airco (A/C) over there, it is as if you were in a cardboard hut on the
beach of the Mediterranean (sp?) near Ventimiglia in the '50s. DAMHIKT.
May we send 15-20F of our 90F forecasted heat to you in exchange for
20F of coolth, please, sir? Thank you!
Always bear in mind that your own resolution to
succeed is more important than any one thing.
