Hotter'N Hades in Summer!!!

Those of you from warmer climes will probably laugh. It's 88 here today and will be close to 100 tomorrow, which will be a record for this time of year ( a record for ANY time of year up here).

Most of us in the Pacific Northwest don't have air conditioning because our summer temperatures are so rarely air-conditioner-necessary. I'm sitting in front of a 26" fan that's going full blast. All doors and windows are open, so I'm comfortable, but if any of these variables change (close a door, close a window, turn the fan down a notch, put on anything other than shorts and a t-shirt), I will be mizable immediately...

The temperature in my office is going to be scorching tomorrow. My side of the building is all glass and we face the sun most of the day, so it's hard to keep the place cool. I'm not looking forward to it.

I will be happy in three days when we are back to our usual 78 degrees. Very happy.

There isn't anything to report for today, so guess I'll give you a break for the evening!

Ciao for now!

Oh my God! I think I've seen too much Tom and Jerry - surely my arch nemisis woud be waiting around the corner with a bow and arrow!

PS, I leave Spain first thing in the morning (it is now 12.34am, and 25/77 degrees) and although I love the sunshine, I just can't sleep at night because I don't have air con like most Spaniards. I'm looking forward to cooler England so I can hibernate. It's horrible being too warm - my blood pressure is rock bottom and I can't do anything - not to mention MOVE HOUSE which is what I have to do. RIGHT NOW.
