Do you live in Hell? That makes 90 seem downright tolerable (http://www.weather.com/weather/tenday/USKY1096?from=search_10day).

Are you out here with us, Frank? Sounds like the Phoenix weather forecast...

Oh, and don't forget that we'll have monsoon moisture starting this weekend, so my swamp cooler just became completely worthless.

I thought I was the only one without AC...

As they say "Its Vegas Baby".....so stinkin' hot! Glad I've got ceiling fans throughout and a brand new AC unit put on earlier this year. Land sakes, I've even got 3 ceiling fans on my patio and intend to put a misting system out there so working out is bearable. Ken, how the hell do you live there without AC?

Oh, my house has A/C. I'm not f'ing suicidal. Gets fun in the gym this time of year though...

Got it, my first house here had only evap cooler and the population here was relatively low at the time so the cooler worked pretty good except for August. I"m thinking of adding one to this place as well since much of the time humidity is still low enough for it to work ok. The best installation is with hard ducting through the attic and side mount the unit right into the gable end of the house, kinda expensive.

I think working out in Chico at 106 without air should be continued. Hot weather work outs do toughen one up a bit!

Yea...we have a few folks in their 70's...they are tough but I'd rather not have anyone stroke out during a session!

Gawd, here in Orange County it's roasting. Yesterday a high of 81; probably the same today.
The AC is cranked, and I ain't talking about Cosgrove.

For the Bay Area forecast; here's Dan Silver. . .

forgot, he doesn't go out in the daylight.

Well, I *don't* have AC, but I've been dealing with the heat by massaging special acupressure points, eating coriander and mint and cucumbers, and lukewarm chamomile tea, and practicing these yoga breathing exercises that are supposed to cool you down (stick out your tongue, roll it, breath in through your mouth and out through your nose...or grit your teeth and breath in and out through your mouth). A year ago a friend suggested wearing white and silver and walking in moonlight after a cool sandalwood bath. I may take her up on that... I guess I am a bit of a hippie!

I've heard good things about aloe juice but haven't tried it yet...

Anyway, now that I'm going to be a teacher I get to be one of those really annoying people that leaves every summer. Mwahaha.
