I think the heat is getting to me…

Really damn hot. I honestly can’t remember a summer this hot… though I’m sure I’m wrong. It just seems to be exceptionally hot.

How hot is it?

It’s been hitting around 108F – 110F at the peak, but it’s not cooling off significantly at night. When I got home from work at 8pm tonight it was still 103F. My thermostat is programmable. I have it set to start out in the morning at 75F and then, after we’ve left for work, allow the temperature to rise to 85F. It kicks back on a half hour before I get home, but lately it’s been 85 degrees in the house when I get home. Indeed, it’s been running steadily for two hours now and it’s only just hit 82 degrees in the house.

It’s been like this for nearly two weeks straight, and there’s no end in sight.

I’m ready for a break from this heat.

It’s making me cranky. I haven’t done any yard work since June…

Of course, maybe it’s just me. A year ago I worked outdoors in the field all the time. For years I worked outside all summer long. It never seemed this bad. Maybe I was acclimated then, and now I’m just not used to it anymore.

Still… Fall and winter cannot come fast enough.
