I try to be a good host, the host with the most!


I did a quick cleanup of the main traffic areas and the guest bathroom, I forgot one very important thing.

TOILET PAPER!!  Sorry, boys and girls. Embarrassed

Our friends and I on the right...

That's Mama front left, Luann's (Lucy's) current male friend (Blaine) without benefits.  He looks like Ted Danson!!  LOL




LuAnn, long time friend of my wife.  And her son, Rollie.

We don't have AC; only a couple of medium-sized fans in the whole house. :-/

OMG! Holy Angry that's gotta be very uncomfortable! I can't stand anything above 90° I can't imagine 110° I know at 80° I sweat from every oriface at 110° I'm probably sweating from orifaces I never knew I had. I know at 80° and above I feel like I'm in an oven. At 110° I probably feel like I'm in a microwave(?) I don't know, I haven't felt it!

Much less humidity today but the house still feels too warm.  I'm toughing it out, it's NOTHING like what Angry S was dealing with.

I trimmed the Ash tree today, I was having to duck while mowing the lawn and the sprinklers were even hitting the low branches. I also trimmed the lower branches on the Maple in the dog run. Those limbs were getting very close to the neighbors house. My reach is only 7 feet, the pole pruner extends to about 10 feet. I cut what I could reach.  I'm sure they know that they can cut half of the tree away if they wanted to, anything that crosses the property line.

Right now it's sunny out today it's gonna rain! I hate the exaggeration and frightening langage The Weather Channel does to get ratings."FLASH FLOOD WARNING!" "WINDS OVER 60 MPH!" FFS just say it's gonna be windy and rainy is that too hard to ask? You won't believe this, they actually made a big deal about hearing thunder in a video clip of a storm in Brooklyn, New York. Da F#@&!? Thunder has been around for billions of years and NOW you make a big deal about it!? Oh I see you wanna show how DANGEROUS it's out there well duh, only a moron would stand outside during a thunderstorm!

Cool air has arrived, it's 73 in the kitchen.  Time to turn the fans down. We had some big storms last night.
That's what motivated me to clean the gutters, I could hear the gutter overflow next to the window at my desk.

Big thunderstorm just to the south of me.

Will we get some of it?

Only the weatherman knows for sure.

And he isn't talking just now.

Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Well, it's finally August.

Not any kind of great improvement over July in terms of the weather, but at least we've crossed that threshold from middle summer into the beginning of late summer.

So that's encouraging anyway.

Pre-season football starts in a week or so, then before you know it, it's September, then soon, fall is here. Several months of comfortable weather right around the corner and a nice, long vacation from yardwork!!!!

The heat and humidity around here is literally killing me. More breathing problems which lead to more TIAs, one of which I had in the car while driving to an ATM at 4:30 AM.
Living in this hell hole because I just have to care for my elderly parents, but these days I'm not sure who will be the first to vacate the
We left Texas around 2001 and lived happy and healthy in the cool GreatWhiteNorth after I got tired of waking up in Emergency Rooms suffering TIAs combined with heat strokes. Stroke got the Missus and now the TIAs are back with me, even when I'm in air conditioned. The stinkin' humidity!!! I NEED my cold climate and will head back for respite.

Hot and humid here this weekend. Our seasons are pretty well defined, things will change in early September.

^ That looks almost like one of our WINTER forcasts!!!

Save for that one "blistering hot" 90° day.

We're hoping that by September our daytime high goes DOWN to 90°!!!

Those daytime temps in the 80's are what we look for in November and the one in the 70's we expect to see by mid December.

And I'd kill for night time lows in the 60's and 50's!!!!

Shelton Washington (right near the Pacific coast) simply isn't supposed to get this gosh darn-diddly-arn hot -- and we have no AC! Just a floor fan in our room and a box fan in the living room. :-/

That's cruel and unusual heat there, Angry S.  I hope you and your family can find some kind of refuge.

Have you considered a window air conditioner?  I closed off the living room at one of my places in Indiana.

I've been considering one of those portable a/C's...



...maybe next summer.

There was a topic over on the CF. What is your thermostat setting?

78  degrees feels fine here.  As long as I'm not working on something, or sleeping.

Yes I've most definitely considered a window AC for the room we rent, but right now there just isn't the $ for one. Cry

Today is the first day in a couple of weeks that I shut off the A/C and opened the windows.  It's right on the edge of comfort for me right now.

We were going to take the boat out...

I cleaned the house, got 5 more gallons of gas for the boat. I had to call our guests and cancel.  I feel bad about it, I was just being lazy and selfish.

Wow, that is some awesome weather you're having up there aka.

Been in the mid 90's down here and with the heat index it's over 100°

Beginning to feel a bit like late summer though. Getting drier and hotter but there's a breeze blowing most of the day. That is pretty much standard for late August down here.

Hoping the heat will break a little bit by mid to late September.

It's rained almost every day this summer so far.  I'd say we've had maybe 3 nice days this year.  By nice, I mean warm, no rain, low humidity, blue skies.

We have been pounded with round after round of heavy rain in the past 36 to 48 hours with more coming later today. We are on the edge of the 3-4 inch range. I imagine Mr. sump pump will start working before the day is out.

We're still getting our daily thunderstorms around here.

I'm sick of it.

Hot and steamy for the first half of the day, then pours down rain like a cow pissing on a flat Rock the second half.

The only good thing about it is how cool it gets during these storms. Temperature drops a good 20° or more in the space of a few minutes.
