I don't enjoy living in an oven.


Recommended Posts

How about a pressure cooker? The humidity here is SO BAD that the stuff at my yard sale felt damp. I had the money stored in a cardboard box and when I counted it last night IT felt damp. If you shower, then go sit outside for a minute, you need another shower because you are sticky. My barely wavy hair manages to puff up and do weird things every day :glare:

 

I'm kind of over summer, and I'm a summer kind of girl. This year has stunk, though.

That's all.

 

Me, either. I have never experienced a summer like this one and I have lived here for a very, very, very long time. :glare:

 

I'll take the oven over the sauna. It's hard to breathe sometimes, with the air so saturated. Then, when it does rain, it's just long enough to create a steam layer on the pavement.

 

I hear you!! Our 'oven' went from 107* with very low humidity to the low 90s with high humidity. I went outside this morning around 9:30 and gasped for air because it was so liquid.

 

I'm so thankful AC is standard here!! I really feel for those of you who have this weather without AC!!

I dont' either, Denise. And truthfully, the deeper into menopause I get, the less I can tolerate the heat. Just a half hour ago I removed my bra. Dh just looked at me like, "you okay?" For some reason I just couldn't stand wearing it another second.

 

UGH. Need some rain and cool temps!

come on Denise, don't you just love sweating from just sitting typing on the computer and heaven forbid if you go outside and do anything then it means stripping out of all clothes including underware, taking another shower and clean dry clothes .

 

Another one here wanting summer to be over as we don't have central air and only one wall unit.

I ordered a portable a/c unit that should be here Thurs (although, all things considered, prob not til next Mon/Tues). Thankfully, we've had a break in the heat, even a bit of rain last night.

 

Hoping it lasts until the a/c unit shows up!

I hear ya! Two weeks ago, our power went out due to the storms (it was out for 4 days). A day and a half later...our a/c broke (blew 2 fuses). 5 days later...the a/c broke again (two more fuses...we were down to one replacement).

 

My husband ordered new fuses last Sunday from a company 200 miles away. The fuses left SW VA for PA, then went to WV, then to Hagerstown...and finally made it to Fredericksburg on Friday...but FedEx wouldn't let us pick them up. They will be here on Monday.

 

The month of July, we have been without a/c for twelve out of 15 days...tomorrow will be day 13. Maybe this is God's way of helping us keep our electric bill down?
