It’s A Hot Time In The ‘Ol Town Tonight

Fact: In recent years, the average heat wave in major U.S. urban areas has been about four days long. This is about a day longer than the average heat wave in the 1960s (see Figure 1). The average heat wave season across the 50 cities in this indicator is about 49 days longer now than it was in the 1960s.

I made a mistake and listened to the “news”; I am appalled at the garbage that the so call press burps out.  Makes me think of a very wise man who I really admire.

It’s gonna be a hot one today as it is already 95 degrees, and it is only 1:00 PM.  We stayed inside and watched TV until almost 2:30 PM, when we went to the nursery and picked up a load of veggies; we are almost out of onions!

No kidding, today will be hot but Saturday will be 102 degrees.

I ordered a mister that fits on a fan; connect it to the water supply, and you are ready to go!  It will arrive on the 6th of September.

We can hardly wait to fire this puppy up!

We stayed inside most of the day as it was 78 inside and 90+ outside.  We went to the nursery and procured a mess of veggies we will plant tomorrow after returning from the gym.

It was 103 degrees in downtown Orange.  If you figure in the wind chill factor, it’s only 102.

Dang, it was hot at the top of the hill!

On the way home, we stopped at Jan’s to say howdy and partake in a glass of wine.  We visited with Jan and laughed and giggled for an hour.

Love to visit Jan!

It is so hot… I saw two trees fighting over a dog.

We had a lite dinner and then headed for the Swim Spa, where the 95-degree water felt cool!  After a good soak, we decided it would be nice to sit outside in the 80-degree evening breeze and toast some marshmallows.

After the hot tub, we roasted marshmallows.

Did You Know? Althaiophobia is the fear of marshmallows, mostly caused by the gooey texture. Marshmallow is a type of confectionery that is typically made from sugar, water and gelatin whipped to a solid-but-soft consistency. It is used as a filling in baking or normally molded into shapes and coated with corn starch.

We looked up, and the sky was amazing, with little puffs of clouds everywhere.  The temperature was just right and we almost went swimming as the water was 84 degrees.

The sky was amazing.

We turned off the firepit and headed for bed at about 10:00 PM.  The house was a cool 78, and we used one of our box fans to circulate the air in the master bedroom; we slept well!

Night night all!

Good night Moon! Tomorrow morning, the gym awaits us.

We got mooned!!
