Did you know you can get cabin fever during the Summer? This heat is brutal. We have experienced almost a whole month of temps above 100. Don’t tell me it is a dry heat. When the temp is 107 it does not matter if it is dry. It is too hot.
I don’t know why they call it the Dog Days of Summer, well I do, but that is another story. Seriously, the dogs want to go outside but, will only spend a few minutes outside and two of our dogs prefer to be outside.
Speaking of outside I can’t throw the kids outside in when it is 102. CPS would be on my but if I did. Child Endagerment and all that.
We are on a water restriction here. No watering lawns and they even want us to limit washing dishes, laundry and showers. Okay I am all for less work for me. But do they want us to share showers? Because when it is 100+ outside people tend to sweat. Silly isn’t it.
Our long range forecast into August says we have a 50-50 shot of this weather continuing. Seriously, What does that mean? It means they don’t KNOW when we will cool off. My prediction is we will cool off the just in time for the kids to need winter coats for trick or treating.
