Dear GAWD. We are melting.

We are in Palmer, Alaska. Well, honestly, just outside of Palmer. We're pretty much in the middle of nowhere.

We live in a weird little pocket. Where at the end of our driveway the wind will be ripping, but back at the house it's calm.

Anyways, it's 78 degrees in Palmer. (the reading is about 3-5 miles away)

and outside my kitchen window? My thermometer is 85. Eighty-five.

When the fawk did I move to California? haha

Luckily there is a light, light wind to keep the bugs away. However, being outside for too long isnt happening. It's just too hot for us. My daughter is flopped on the couch all sweaty. haha.... She's saving her energy for soccer later.

It only hit about 90 today. We went to the pool this afternoon. The water is still cold when you first get in. That won't last LOL. I went to Alaska in the summer once. It was in Anchorage. They were having a heat wave and it was 85. Everyone thought they were going to die. Felt cooler than home to me LOL. Temp dropped back to 60s next couple days and everyone was relieved. I put on a sweatshirt LOL while they had on shorts.
