Today (Saturday) will be day 4 of 100+ degrees. The forecast is for more of the same through at least next weekend. If we're lucky, we may sneak in a degree under 100 one day next week. :sigh:

We've zipped right past the 90s this year--had a couple of days here and there during the past two weeks, but that's it. :rolleyes:

Let's hope the jet stream dips down again before it gets really hot! :yes:

It's been averaging about 17 here (what's that, about 64-ish?) and this is classed as a very nice May!

Oh, joy!

One of my colleagues has a daughter in high school and they had their final track meet on Thursday and Friday. Began at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday--and the temperature was around 104 degrees! :eek: Fortunately, that was mostly short distances, so the students weren't competing in the sun/heat for long periods of time, although they had qualifying heats first. The daughter runs cross country, and her event was Friday evening at 7:30. It was still hot, but at least the sun wasn't beating on them the entire time!

They'll have to visit my colleague's neighbor, Stefi! She now has five torts--one recently found its way into my colleague's back yard and her mother saw one of the dogs with it in his mouth. :eek: Holding it very gently, thankfully! It was a small tort (about 6 inches or so) and a large dog (about 85 lbs)!

The tort now is happy in a dog-free, cat-free environment, complete with shelter, sunning area and a shallow pond. :)

I think we're in the wrong country Jodie - I tried to sit out for a coffee this morning and almost got blown away, still at least the washing is getting dry, even if I end up chasing it halfway round the garden. Thankfully we are going to Florida in a few days so really looking forward to getting some sun :thumbsup:

As long as it's Fahrenheit and not Celcius, it's bearable! :lol: The house stays reasonable comfortable until the temperature exceeds 100 degrees for a week or so--then it begins creating its own heat-island effect. And the AC is turned on! :rolleyes:

Oooooh! Never thought of that! Great idea! :thumbsup:


Yesterday was the optimum day to stay a degree or so below 100, but it didn't happen. Now they're extending the 100+ degrees forecast into next week. :sigh:

We usually have a few scattered days of 100 degrees or so in May, just not this concentration of consecutive days. Seriously not mentally ready for it!
