Layers of Heat

Layered Sunset on Hot Day

At sundown it was still an oppressive 85 degrees tonight. As I walked to the mailbox a block away it seemed that the waves of heat were layered in the sunset. There was no cool breeze such as we usually get to relieve the heat when the sun goes down. I feel for the people who are attending the Mid-State Fair a couple of miles away. Someone working a booth there told me last night that the air conditioning in her building had gone out for an hour and they had to rely on fans. There always seems to be a heat wave during the fair. That's one reason I rarely go. How is your weather?

It's more humid than usual here, but not as humid as it is back east.

It's hot right now, those are the hottest days of the year, we could reach the 85 F during two or three days. The nights are never so hot, we usually drop around 65 F, that is not too bad and enough to cool down the house.

I wish it never got hotter than 85 here. It's at least cooler outside than inside tonight, down to 65, so I'm trying to air the house out with all the windows open.

@bagarad I open all the upstairs windows during the night, the air from the mountains is always cool.

@LadyDuck The problem is that it doesn't cool off enough until around midnight to open the windows and we live in a one-story house. It's somewhat risky to leave the windows open after we're both in bed, so I just don't get to bed until very late. I'd like to go now, but it's still too hot to open the windows.

I saw that you are having a lot of heat there. We have had cooler weather the last few days and it's supposed to hold over the weekend, then hot again. It rained this afternoon and cooled it way down, and now its around 63, which is awesome right now.

It's after midnight and down to 65 now, but the heat will resume tomorrow. We drove to the coast this afternoon to escape the triple digit temperatures and shop at Costco. It was 20 degrees cooler there.

@bagarad I'm glad you can find some cooler areas. And 65 isn't too bad for night time. It's 74 here right now (at noon!) and it's supposed to be down to 49 tonight! That's a fluke and it will be back up in the high 80s and low 90s after this, with lows in the lower 60s. I hope you get a good break from the heat soon.

@peavey It's 62F now at 2am, going up to 104F during the daytime Friday and 105F on Saturday. It's very tempting to leave for the coast.

It is better here right now, the humidity has dropped. Our county fair is like that, either oppressively hot or thunderstorms all day.

I don't ever remember seeing a thunderstorm here during the fair. We don't get them in summer.

@bagarad We have had some bad ones during that time. Our county fair runs over the 4th of July and Ohios state fair is going on now.

@RubyHawk Winters are not usually very cold here. The coldest is a few nights that go into the twenties and bring a bit of frost.

Last week we had a bit of a cooldown, enough so that we were even able to turn off the AC and open the windows. That was a nice little break. But now we're back to the layers of heat you describe.

I would find your climate very hard. We tried relying on fans last year for a week while our air conditioning was down. I do feel sorry for those who don't have it.

@bagarad We chose not to have it We have many windows that let in fresh air and the heat may not be that intense that fans cannot take care.Also, It is a matter of getting used to. In your case it is once in a way and so your body is not ready for it.

@bagarad This heat is uncalled for. Mercifully Belfast has dropped to 64 Fahrenheit / 18 centigrade this morning and the breeze coming ion from somewhere is cool and fresh.. I'll want a refund or the chance to sue somebody if it shoots up again. Do you know any good climate lawyers?

Fortunately it's in the eighties this week and it's cooling down at night so that we can cool off by opening the windows when it gets dark.
