Summer's Hottest Days

Good Friday morning myLot friends! I love Fridays. Today will be a very hot day for us in our area. We are in the hottest days of our summer. Today we are expecting 41C, which converts to 105.80 on the old Fahrenheit scale. That is obviously very hot. We also experience high humidity in our region, and today is no exception to that either. With hot and humid days like this on us, its time to eat light, drink lots of water, cut back on sugars and caffeinated drinks, and move slowly and less if possible. Over-exertion is one of the main reasons that people are making trips to the emergency departments of the hospitals. Today is not the day to go for a long distance anything-walk, jog or run. Not the day to be putting your body thru movements that it isn't used to. Today and tomorrow will hopefully be the hottest days of our summer of 2019. There will be plenty other warm days to follow, but today will be a scorcher. Me-I will be testing the a/c in my car and in our home to make sure that I stay as cool as I can. How do you survive the summer's hottest days? ~Pixabay photo

@HazySue We get hot hot during the summer and cold cold during the winter. And the other seasons are very nice and enjoyable. Our weather is heavily dictated by the Great Lakes, and the fact that we are in a low lying triangle, so it takes a strong front to push any weather pattern out.

@andriaperry Oh yeah, we get everything up here. The hot hot during July and the cold cold during January. Right now its pouring down rain with heavy winds. If the sun comes back out after the rain ends it will be brutally humid again. Thank goodness for a/c.

Thank you. It was hot and humid. Its pouring rain right now, the winds have settled down, I just hope that the sun doesn't come back out again, that will mean it will be awfully muggy.

@simone10 We had some rain last night, and just before that a nice cool front came thru, with cooling breezes and nicer temperatures. Today is beautiful-finally.

@crazyhorseladyccx I trained our lab to take a bath without fighting me or doing the dog shake afterwards on hot days like this. She realized that if she put up with it, she would feel cooler. I suggested that our son try to get his dog accustomed to home baths on days like this and then he can do it any time without a hassle or a mess.

@Juliaacv mr. red pup loves water, so 'tis harder to keep 'im out'ta such (aka: the pond. he loves the pond, much to the fish's horror, lol). the resident pup 'tis well trained 't baths. politely hops'n, stands still 'n doesn't get out 'til asked. no shakin', no mess :)

@crazyhorseladycx That's a good doggie, our last dog was like that too. We had to spell the word 'tub' or else she'd go and get into the tub and stand there until you ran the water and gave her a bubble tub. She was such a diva dog!

It is no more as hot as the past week, but still pretty hot and humid in the afternoon. I stay inside with my fan running until around 6 p.m., then I go out to work in the garden.

Tomorrow's high is only 29C here, so that is a lot lower, but still humid. There must be a cool front coming as my husband told me that they are forecasting a much cooler and normal day on Sunday. I hope so.

@LadyDuck We are bound to have the hottest days until about the start of the third week of July, after that we should only see the extreme heat for a day or so.

@Gillygirl Today was another hot and muggy day, I'm so over this summer weather, bring on the early fall coolness and I'd be happy here.

Your area really is experiencing dangerous heat. It is not as hot here, but it is humid. On hot and humid days, I stay indoors where it is nice and cool.

@Corbin Our weather is influenced by the Great Lakes, we sit in a little low-lying triangle and the air all just kind of percolates and gets really gross, which is what we had today. It takes a strong front to move it along, so send us one won't you?

@Juliaacv It is hard to sleep when it is cold so keep yourself under the warm duvet.

Ugh that is way too hot, we are in the high 80s today and that is bad enough. I pretty much stay inside when it gets this hot but I do have to go out if it is an exercise day which is every day but Thursday.

@Marilynda1225 It was disgusting today. When I got into work this morning it smelt musty. They cleaned the carpeting in the hallway last night and it hadn't completely dried, and the a/c was not able to keep up. Within a couple of hours the a/c was working and I was freezing. I saw the skies were dark on my way home and I drove as quick as I could to beat the storm and was barely inside more then a minute or two and the clouds opened up. Its very windy. I hope that the sun doesn't come back out again after the rain or it will be awful.

Yikes!! It gets very hot here as well so our AC during the Summer is always running. We stay inside or go in the kiddie pool, stay hydrated and keep out of the direct sun if possible. =) I hope you stay as cool as possible!

I wasn't too bad today. The a/c in my car is so good that I can get the windows all fogged up, inside of work it was cool enough that I wanted a sweater.

We are hopefully coming out of the heatwave in the next few days, although we will have another bout of it before the season is over.
