I am in Seattle. It is currently 60 degrees and the forecasted high is 75. Leaving the East Coast for 19 days in July was clearly a good idea. I know it's going to bite us in August when we go to camp though.

Sorry to hear about the punishing heat. You don't have a/c?

I don't have a/c. I can't afford it, I can't store one during the winter, and the windows in my apartment are designed such that it's almost impossible to install one without the building manager fiddling with it, for which there is a steep fee.

So I go and hide in the library during the worst of it.

Heh. I guess the heat is good for your productivity then?

We had a fan that we put in the window which would push air out during the day and pull cool air in at night when we lived in NY. It was very helpful. We couldn't have a/c in that apartment either.

At least for the interview transcription part of productivity, yes!

I have a couple of fans, and they are making my life bearable right now. I'm very glad of them.

i have a/c, but that doesn't take away the boo hiss, so i need multiple boxes.

I'm strongly considering the idea of becoming nocturnal for a few weeks here. Definitely into boo hiss territory for me.

ROTFL! That pretty much sums it up. I don't mind adjusting to new economic normals nearly as much as I dislike this new weather normal. I thought I moved out of Florida! I never thought you lived there. ;-)

I never thought I lived in Florida, either! In fact, I always thought I'd made heroic efforts to avoid Florida, from The Deep South in the Panhandle, down through Corporationland and the Ancient Yankee Burial Ground, right through Miami and the Keys. All of it! And here it is coming to me.

Feh.

Your poll is inadequate (if hilarious). I have an AC + box fan, but still feel compelled to cheer at the thought of cooler temps. And as your town's weather typically becomes mine in three days, may the same carry over to NYC.

We are currently in the middle of an enormous, glorious thunderstorm, with pouring down rain. I love it. May the same carry over to NYC!

I remembered that you donh't have a/c and was thinking about you when I caught the Chicago weather. (Our cable provider carries WGN. Which seems to be broadcasting either "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" or baseball 90% of the time.)

Someone else on my FL posted that NYC had a major thunderstorm, including hail, and that the temperature dropped 30 degrees. May it be so for you (without the hail).

It's been wretchedly hot here but is supposed to "cool," i.e. only be in the eighties for a few days. Yay?

Fortunately, the university library has very enthusiastic AC, so on the hottest days, I take myself down there and hide all day. They're open til 10 at night, too!

We had a glorious wonderful lovely long thunderstorm last night. It wasn't the kind that really clears the air, but it did cool things down quite a bit just for the night, at least.
