That is just the temp, not with the heat index. We are hiding inside. MADE the dog come in, he is not impressed with us. Heading down into the basement to watch a free borrowed movie. What are you doing?

I'm SO over this heat!! We're sitting inside playing Wii and surfing the DIS boards. :) Our heat index is down to 100 today (115 yesterday)! Cold front! :rolleyes:

ETA: If I wanted to live in this kind of heat you can be sure I'd live closer to Disney!!!

We are at a current chilly 98 degrees, without the heat index. I do not know how anyone can do anything outside. My lip balm melted in my car yesterday!

I bought crayons yesterday, and had to come right home because I didn't want them to melt in the car when I did other errands!

We've had the heat dome over us since May. I'm am so over the heat and drought. We did have a storm 2 days ago that gave us some relief from the heat. Unfortunately it only rained .25 inches.

I feel for you guys not used to the heat. Drink lots of water and get yourself in a pool or play in a sprinkler or even take a cool shower. It will lower your core temp and help you get through the worst part of the day.

Praying for cooler temps.

It is 102F outside right now with the heat index!
I am really glad I parked on a lower...covered... deck of the parking garage today, otherwise my black steering wheel would be untouchable!

I'm not exactly sure what I'm going to do this evening, but I can bet that it won't be outside!

As someone who lives in an area that had two feet of snow last winter (at one time), I am delighted with this weather! While I can't hang out outside too long, this is what summer is to me and I keep going outside just to enjoy (we're at a heat index of 108 here). I'd prefer it in the 90s and 100s as opposed to the -10 (or less!) we end up with here in the winter.

So as far as I'm concerned, bring on the sunshine! I'll take it!

We put in a pool this year. We have had record low temperatures all summer. It's struggling to get to 76 degrees today.

I would love some hot days! We are in the desert and is usually is 100+ during the summer.

Hmmm not bad here - 86 degrees currently *usually it's much warmer* I'm at work in my lovely air conditioned building and I'll head home in 50 min. to my 76 degrees house *the fan motor on our A/C unit went out and we had a hot house for a couple weeks - cost us $115 to replace the motor - our good friend who can fix anything took care of it for us.

111 degrees here with the heat index!

Our central air broke last year and given that it was 25 years old, the whole system needed replaced. According to my divorce papers, my ex-husband is suposed to do all home repairs but refuses to fix anything and now we are in the middle of a messy court battle and still NO central air!

So we have 1 window unit in the master bedroom. The kids are camping out on the floor and we have moved the X-box into the room as well!

Should cool off by Monday I think!

95 here 104 with heat index.

Felt like I was going to sweat to death walking in and out of the stores today. I don't even want the kids playing out there today.

This is why I opted not to have my garage sale this weekend, I did not want to sit out there all day, nor would I think others would be out looking for sales!

It is hard to beleive in 6 months we will be back below 0 worring about snow, which I thing I could jump in a pool of right now :laughing:

It was 118 a few weeks ago here, no big deal... It's 110 and lovely outside today!

The best part about summer here is that the pool is nice and toasty (93 degrees as of last night).

TIP: Drink a whoooole bunch of water. A whooooooooooooooole bunch. If your pee is yellow, you're not drinking enough water and are already dehydrated (this goes year-round, really).

We ventured out just long enough to rent Ghostbusters and pick up supplies to make my brother's family favorite brownies. Now we are back inside although the dogs are driving me crazy. They kept asking to go out then scratching to come back in because they realize how hot it is!

From what weather bug said on my phone today, it was 97 with a heat index of 104. I work with kids in a summer program and we take them to the city pool but it was SO crowded and didn't feel safe so we pulled them out.

TOMORROW, same temps expected going to the beach with a group of 50 kids. :eek:

Our house was built in 1917 and has no central air. We have 2 window units and like your kids my DD sleeps in our bedroom on an air mattress.

There are people dying in this heat...

Our heat index isn't as bad as some but we've had over 100 degrees for 20 days now and no rain. Our yards are dying. :(

We're loving the heat! We live in FL and our pool is always so cold that it's unusable w/o turning on the propane. With this heat we can use it without heating it, though! It's awesome! We've been in the pool a ton recently:thumbsup2

DH spent his day working in other people's attics fixing their central air. If you do have someone out to fix the A/C please take pity on them and offer them some water when they are done. DH said it was 140 up there today!

ETA - Sorry, DH said it was 130 not 140. I mis-heard.

We never get a "heat index" as part of our forecast, so I have no idea what ours is. It's been in the high 90s and low 100s here all summer, but yesterday and today have been nice in the early evenings because we're finally getting some rain!

It rained yesterday for the first time in 216 days!!!!!!!!!:cheer2:

I love it here because while it's hot in the summer afternoons, the nights and mornings are cool. For example, the low tonight will be 61 degrees, but the predicted high tomorrow is 99 degrees. So we wake up nice and cool, the temps build throughout the day, and then cool off in the evening.

Sorry for those who are suffering.

Here's a picture I took last year on a day when it was 105 degrees (in very early June). We decided to burn an egg on the dashboard of one of our old cars. We cracked the egg in a pan and then set it on the dash board for a few minutes. It worked!!!

I'm actually not minding the heat, even without a/c at home. We spent most of the day at the library and the river, and the kids are having a great time with a summer hot enough to want to swim in the rather chilly water at our local beach. In the shade the breeze makes even 101 tolerable.

We had a break today. Only got up in the 90's. Heat Index was 109-115. It was our fair week. Had big storm on Friday, all day, then the heat hit. Could only go to the fair for 1/2 hr. The fair grounds were all mud where the rides were. It was really a mess. Suppose to heat up again next week.

Where are you? We were only in the 60's today. Did youbsee the article today that said we've had 78 minutes above 80 degrees this year? Crazy.

I'm so sorry for that, but on a good note - just think how much you are saving in electricity! I keep telling myself that as we were holed up in our bedroom with the window ac too.

We're hovering around the same temps. All kinds of "Stay Inside" warnings here.
We spent yesterday indoors for the most part. I didn't take ds to tennis lessons. The courts are all outdoor with no shade and running around for an hour in the sun at noon seemed like a miserable idea.
Today is supposed to be worse. We'll go to the park before 10 am and then spend the afternoon in the air conditioning again.
I don't mind it so much but I sure would like some rain. It's been over a month and my lawn actually "crunches" when you walk on it:rolleyes1

We have AC so we've stayed inside. I figure it's good practice for our WDW trip! Although I noticed yesterday it was cooler in FL than here!

I heard the city pools around here had to go to a "one in, one out" policy to deal with crowding - and then one was closed because of unruly users. I wouldn't have the energy to be unruly in this heat :headache:

It's expected to be 91 today instead of 99 LOL. Practically a deep freeze!

Make sure the car is closed up and hot. Put the pan on your dash and leave it there for about 10 min. before you put the egg in it. Also, you might want to put a hot pad under the pan. We didn't do that and it left a mark on the dashboard from the hot pan. The car is old so it's not a big deal, but I don't want to be responsible for people damaging their dashboards.

Report back and let us know if it worked! Our heat is a dry heat, so that day there was probably around 10% humidity. I'm curious to see how an egg will fry using a "heat index" temp.

I was going to complain about how hot it is, then I realized that: 1) it isn't 109 degrees; 2) I'm not 5,700 miles from home; 3) I'm not dressed in a full BDU uniform and helmet and carrying 70+ lbs.; and 4) There is very little chance that anyone will shoot at me or that I might drive over a bomb in the road today! Thanks to all who serve.

We are the same here in CT - 100 in the shade. I have left the ac long enough to vacuum the pool from inside the pool!! Other than than, to cool off we're going to Disney!!! We leave in 3 weeks and with this heat and humidity we will be well prepared for it.

I live in northern GA, and it's "only" 96 here today. . .it's usually hotter, so I'm counting my blessings! Just checked the forecast for WDW for next week when we'll be there, and the highest it's predicted to be all week is 92!! :cool1:
MUCH better than the 103 it got to on our last trip!
