How are all our "out west" mamas doing? Temps in the 100's & higher- keep cool!

I saw the weather forecast for that area-Days of oppressive heat. Hope you are all finding ways to stay cool. Let us know how you're doing.

  • I know this is crazy talk but when it's that hot we simply turn on the air conditioning or walk our butts out the back door into the pool.

  • I live by the beach, not as hot here (although we think 80 is hot) and we've had a decent ocean breeze. So far liveable. Place I work full time managing a little sewing machine store in the mall, so FREE air conditioning!

  • UGH!! It's 76 with 87% humidity here... feels like you can't breath up there. I can't imagine that kind of heat JJK!! Stay safe!!

  • It's supposed to be 112* today. We hit 108 and 109 over the weekend, and those temps were slightly lower than predicted, so I'm hoping today isn't so awful either. Not that 108 and 109 are anything wonderful.

    When it's this hot, it's too hot to go to the pool. We stay inside under the a/c and fans and try to keep the house dim.

  • It's going to be 104 today but not as hot as JJK is having I'm sure she's at least 110 if not hotter.

  • Yeah, it's sucking. It was 117 yesterday and supposed to be 116 the next couple of days. It was fine over the weekend because my husband took the weekend off, but now he's working in it. I don't know how he works in these temperatures. When I was watching the news last night, it was still 105 and almost 11 pm.

  • Temps in my town were 102 on Saturday and predicted to be the same yesterday but I doubt it even reached 90. We're lucky though, 20-30 minutes to the beach where it's 20-30 degrees cooler lol. Plus it still gets down into the low 60's/high 50's at night so with a fan in the window it's perfect.

  • Thanks! It's hot in Seattle today and normally I wouldn't mind but it goes from something like 54 to 90 in a day. We don't get a chance to acclimate so it feels like 110.

  • The West is getting the heat. And here in Oklahoma we are cooler then normal. It is only 79 right now.
