There's a nasty stench in the air thanks to some wild fires up in Canada.
I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

CryMy days here NEED to come to an end!!!
Been in the upper 90's with very high humidity, which means Homey don't go outside unless emergency. In fact, I've been waking up about 1-2 PM.
The pups back up in The Great White North tell me how it just isn't getting hot up there! Stuck in the mid-70's!

Cry If only it were that cool here. "Dear Abbey" comes to mind ("...stop wishing for bad luck and knocking on wood...")

I just went for a 3 mile drive to pick up dinner and had a 3 mile island seizure in the heat, because of the heat. Spit up almost a bucket of phlegm, still have a tight chest and short breathing and all I wanted to do was to kill the idiots asking me if I was OK since I had to pull over at a major 4-way stop and almost hit a cement pole, got out of the car on my hands and knees and hacked for 20 minutes in front of minorities who wanted to know if I had a cigarette, a dollar, or if I was o,k,? It was 99 with 60% humidity at 7 PM....which left me sick, sweating like an Irish pig, but in front of too many people to become a gang victim (once outside of 'The Estate In The Swamp', I'm not part of the 88% ethnic majority of the local town). I'll trade places with aka and his terrible weather for a week any time, these days.

I had to do a little work outside so I wanted to do it early. I had to start the burn pile and trim a couple of bushes near the gas meter. They grow like crazy and the utility company will complain if they don't have a clear view of the meter.  Mama was kind enough to clean up behind me.

LOL
The local utilities came to move their meters to the back of the house and figured they didn't need to say anything before entering a fenced area that has a nice big gate. Problem is, our caretaker's almost invisible grey pit bull lives back there - she has bright yellow eyes and is very, very quiet until she is right on you and about to kill you (she loves everyone she knows). I heard her go off and then had to answer the front door to a supervisor who really needed to go home and change his pants.

We're looking at heat indexes (pardon me... indeces) of over 100° this week.

I am literally counting the weeks and days until October.

No 'global warming' in your area, eh?
India's massive use of water and China's incredible amount of cement usage over the past decade has changed the axis of the earth, and thus the weather...which should have the USofA becoming a huge desert over the next few generations...I'm considering buying mountain top property (should become beach-front) in Antarctica for my chilluns!

I don't see how you do it!  I would be sweating like a freak just sitting still.  The weather guys are describing our heat index as similar to what Florida feels like.  Yikes!  Thank God for central air!

The gas and electric bill was a near record low price, only $116.  These low bills always come during the transitional period of Spring and Fall.  No need for heat or cooling.

I flew my drone just a short time ago; according to the documentation for this drone its maximum ambient operating temperature is stated as 108°F. Geek

I stay in front of the fan as much as possible, don't move around much unless it's absolutely necessary and wear as few pieces of clothing as possible. Frequently none whatsoever.

And no, you would not want to see that.

My utility bills are incredibly low year 'round.

During the summer, my average utility bill (electric, water and and all of the other fees and taxes they tack on to it) is between $55 and $65 per month. During the cool months I turn off the fans and never use a heater, so it drops down to between $40 and $45 a month.

Plus, with no TV cable or satellite dish, I pay nothing to watch TV.

No mortgage payments either, so thankfully, I'm able to live on very little money.

oppressive


If the weather or heat is oppressive, it is too hot and there is no wind:

It hit me when I walked out of the grocery store... Like a hot and wet slap in the face!

My glasses even fogged up!

My phone just about made me crap my pants!  I didn't sign up for any weather alerts! All of a sudden, my phone is going off like it never has before.  More weather is coming!  Mama is over in Winneconne so her day will be cut short.

Appleton is about 30 minutes north and east of here...

City of Appleton gives update on debris cleanup, power outage Saturday night



WE Energies expects some outages in its service area could last for several days. We don’t know if this included Appleton, but people still without power should prepare accordingly.

* We ask all residents to stay off the roads tonight as much as possible. Our crews have been out since the storm passed through, moving trees from blocked roads, but this process will last at least through tomorrow.

* Some street lights will also be without power tonight. This will make travel difficult and harder to see downed power lines.

* Many street lights are without power or working in a flashing mode. We ask all residents to use caution around intersections and treat all flashing and non-functioning signals as a four-way stop. Intersections with no power have stop signs in place. As power comes back, some lights may resume normal operation and still have stop signs at them. In those instances drivers can follow the lights instead of the stop signs, but should still use caution as some drivers may be confused. As our crews are altered the intersection is working, they will remove the signs as soon as possible.


* We have food safety tips on our website for anyone still without power. Please share these reminders as some people will be without power for an extended period of time. https://www.appleton.org/home/showdocument?id=1212

* Our Glendale Ave. yard waste site will be open extended hours this week for residents to drop off storm debris. The site will be open every day next week from 9:00 a.m. - 6:45 p.m. our Whitman Ave. site will be open through Monday 9:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.

* We will hold a special citywide storm debris cleanup collection. Details on when the collection will take place are still being worked out.

* With the possibility of an extended power outage to some parts of the city, we ask that neighbors check on elderly and those without air conditioning during the next few days. If there are concerns about the welfare of a neighbor, contact APD at 832-5500.

* If drivers come upon a barricaded roadway, we want them to remember they should not drive around the barricade. Please help us remind people about this serious safety issue.


* Anyone who can not access their driveway may park on the street tonight without permission from APD. We ask others to stay off the street as much as possible to make cleanup for our crews more efficient.

* Property owners who are using generators to power their residence, to ensure all generator safety issues are addressed while their power is still out. This includes not using generators indoors or in a garage.

* Finally, we ask for patience. Our crews will be working long days for the next few weeks to cleanup from the storm. We are prioritizing cleanup on main roads first, then secondary roads on down to neighborhood streets, alleys and cul-de-sacs.
