IT'S. SO. HOT. (and I stink)
It's 95 degrees and muggy. I took my dog out for some yard time earlier when it was in the 80s but being a black siberian husky mix he wasn't impressed.
I went out to water my flowers and opted to do it by watering can instead of hooking the hose up to the sink because it would let in the heat. I am now slimey with sweat and stink.
I am not a fan of over 85 degrees unless my fat ass is at the beach or in a pool. I am going to have ice cream for dinner.

Hot weather, especially muggy, has a drastic effect on my mood. Right now it's 95 here, too, and I have some kind of phlegmy chest (allergy?) and I feel like it's the end of the world. If it were cool and dry I'd be on top of the world.

You guys will think I’m nuts but I use these migraine ice head wraps. I get them from Amazon and keep them in my freezer. On a day like today I wear them as I do housework. It really helps!
Also refreshing is a bath or shower with a couple of drops of peppermint oil.

I'm in So Cal and June is very pleasant. Oh how I love the overcast mornings to mid afternoons that burn off to a light sun with wind. You end up with part of the day in the sunny low 70s. I wish it would stay like this and not turn into the hell that is August through at least October, if not November. (and sometimes December)

Hmmm, the upshot of your post, OP, is that you mentioned ice-cream for dinner. Great choice at the end of a hot, summerlike and muggy day. A big dish of some good quality vanilla bean paired with black raspberry, and topped with some frozen blueberries. Yes, baby. :)

I'm going to visit my parents in Phoenix from June 16-21. This is their first full year there after being snowbirds for around 17 years. But they sold their house in Minnesota last year so they're not going back for the summer - other than a three week vacation.
The forecast for EVERY day is a high between 111 and 115. I know it's not "muggy" in Phoenix since it's the desert, but still, that's insane and I'm not looking forward to it. They told me to "think of it like winter in Minnesota" - it's the season when you stay indoors a lot of the time and only venture out for activity at certain times - early morning or late evening as the sun is going down or when it's completely dark. A lot of people run, play tennis, do other activities when it's dark or barely light - even though it can still be 95 degrees, but the lack of direct sunlight apparently makes a big difference.
|by wafting||reply 36||06/06/2021|
R36 - The big difference is that 95 or higher when it is dark won’t kill you. The 115 during the day can kill you. I live by Camelback Mountain and hear the fire engines and ambulance head up to rescue someone pretty much everyday. If the situation is real bad they call in helicopters.
|by wafting||reply 37||06/06/2021|
Yep, R37. May parents' yearly time in Phoenix metro (first Mesa, now Chandler) has grown over the years. When they were still partially working, it was only November or December (sometimes even January) until March or early April. Then eventually October to mid-April to early May. I almost always was dealing with pleasant weather and I could hike at South Mountain or Camelback or go running during the day or play tennis without too much problem. I won't do that on this trip. I'll run at 7 am or after dark or go to the gym. Like you said, that sun makes an enormous difference, and even 95 as the sun goes down or after it goes down is doable.

I’m with you Rescue Chick! I HATE hot weather and I’m already fed up - and it’s not even officially summer yet!😭 Where I live the humidity is terrible in the summer so I have to run both my air conditioner and my dehumidifier at the same time. I just love my electric bills in the summer.🙄
Oh, and you mentioned having to water flowers - this is exactly why I only have perennials in my yard. I’m not trying to go outside every day it doesn’t rain to water flowers in that hot ass humidity and sun. Nor do I need a big water bill on top of my electric bill. With perennials, I don’t have to water and it doesn’t matter how long it goes between the times it rains.

I've been following the weather up there, R-C, because I'm heading up for Laconia Bike Week in a few days, and it's been as hot in NH as it is here in FL!! I could probably live with that, but the temperature is going to drop to the low 70s/low 50s by the time I actually get up there, and I'm going to have to pack clothes that will prepare me for all kinds of weather. That's a lot of clothes even for my Harley Ultra (which has lots of luggage space).

When I was growing up, everyone had trees in their front & back yards. All suburban streets had woods on the corner. It was never as brutally hot as it is now. Towns cut down all the trees along all roads. The ends of the streets now have Subway shops and CVS instead of woods. It’s so, so much hotter. I live in an area where they’re tearing down houses and uprooting all greenery to build huge McMansions, pools, patios & driveways across every inch of space on earth. Why are people this stupid? Is it because they all grew up with air conditioning? So they see no need for trees to clutter up the earth with their obnoxious shade and oxygen producing capacities? Plant a tree, use less air conditioning. But noooooo….things live in trees! Ick! Furry-tailed things and things that have wings & lay eggs. Omg, little frogs live in trees. Can you imagine them LANDING in you when you walk under a tree? I’d just die!

r71, Portland has really changed in the past few years. We have homeless camps and garbage all over the city. Petty crime like auto breakins and thefts have really gone up. Housing is very expensive - it was really affordable when we moved here from Boston 30 years ago.
Also due to a lot of forest fires and an increase in people moving here the hiking and backpacking trails are starting to require permits which must be acquired in advance. Some of the trails haven't reopened after fires ripped thru the areas. It is very, very sad to know that what was once a beautiful and lush forest was turned to ash.
We head to Palm Springs Jan - April to avoid the cold and rain.
Given all of the above, the PNW is absolutely gorgeous and the Fall mushroom hunting is amazing.
