98 degrees here in Westminster today. ick.. a bit more than I like!
Even now at 10:30 pm, it's still 82.
97 over here in Thornton! It's 11:20 and it's still 75 out! Thought this was supposed to be Colorado!!! The real problem is that my AC quit four years ago and it's 81 up in the bedroom--where I'm about to go! Tomorrow's supposed to be the same, but it'll wind up being even worse inside since the whole structure of the house will be more "heated up" from the last couple days.
Methinks it's gonna be a Long, Hot Summer!
It was 101 when I got home from work around 3pm. Thermometer is usually pretty accurate in the afternoon being on the east side of the house. It's cooled down to 98 now. Some plants looked fairly water stressed especially potatoes. Did some hand watering and turned some of the drip lines on for awhile.
It was an even 100ÃÂº yesterday and made 104ÃÂº today. Now it is 95ÃÂº but the wind is whipping up pretty good. Just trying to keep things hydrated, plants and animals alike.
Sure better than the folks dealing with fires.
Yesterday it hit 96, but today it only got up to 89. The winds were pretty bad here too! 15 - 35 mph for about 8 hours straight. They are finally starting to die back now.
Too hot! I have work to do outside, but it's just too hot.
WAY too hot! Waywayway too hot! I just came in from planting most of my tomatoes! It's STILL 82 out there! I'm dripping with sweat! I "think" I watered them! Not real sure since it was too dark to see anymore! Still have a couple more to do (in an area I need to turn over yet--like, yeah, I'm gonna do that when it's in the upper 90's!!!) and have the eggplants, paprika peppers and herbs to plant--never thought I'd be glad they were so small---but, oh boy, am I---no big holes to dig! Got up to "only" 98 here today, and "that bedroom" where I'll be going to sleep (?????) is 84 right now! Couple hours isn't gonna cool it down too much. Maybe I'll just lie down in the shower with the cold water running and skip the bed! And that Cold Shower is where I'm heading right now!
Stay cool, all,
P.S. Ain't ya all glad we don't have 80% humidity with the heat?!?
