It's too hot to go outside

And Roscoe agrees. He's napping on the vent but the air from the swamp cooler isn't all that cool. It's 105f with 6% humidity and the weather peeps say the real feel is 103f. Ha, hot is hot, right? Roscoe woke me up about 5am wanting to go out, I still keep him crated overnight til he's old enough for me to trust him. I found this old tune from 1961 and figured you might enjoy listening to it, the lead singer even does some fancy foot work.

That is too hot for human or adorable beastie. Even when its in the low 80s here Rufus gets sick of the warm wooden deck boards pretty quickly.

You also have higher humidity than we do which makes the heat even worse.

@rebelann Savannah, Georgia was horribly high humidity. That beat my rump pretty badly.

I think we will be following your weather footsteps next week . . . . we will be in the 100s as well. I hope Roscoe can keep himself cooled down in these hot days . . . tub time?

I heard that it's supposed to get into the 110s and above pretty soon, I remember one year when we got as high as 116f, not as bad as what AZ gets but not cool either. So no rain in sight for you yet? I'll step up those rain dances. Roscoe goes out long enough to pee and wants right back in when he's done, he's a smart cookie. No tub time, the water is too warm for him. It's very warm in here too but not as bad as outdoors, swamp coolers don't do much to cool down the interior of a mobile home. Are those fires under control out there?

@rebelann It's gotten that hot here too. But usually it doesn't happen til later . . . this year it's happening in June already. There hasn't been much June gloom this month - I am bummed - because that at least helps keep it pleasant for half the day anyway. I'm scared for what late summer will bring us. Nope - no rain in sight . Wow, Roscoe's got the whole potty thing down! Or darn, no swimming right now. Well for us either . . . we are not into going to public pools or anyone's house to use their pool . My parents still have a swamp cooler thingie in their house . . . keeps that one room cool but not the rest of the house. I guess there aren't any major fires at the moment. Hope there won't be . . . but we know how that goes .

Yes, all too well. I'm still learning Roscoes signals and so far I'm not doing as well as I hoped, I just found a pile of poop he left me by the front door, at least he tried to go outside but I'm not reading him as well as I would like, I guess that'll take time.

Thank you. I don't envy your weather, at least here it's dry which is easier to breath in if I went out in the heat.

It's really hot out right now so I'll wait until later to go outside again. I wish it would rain here also but I doubt we will get any.

June is usually our hottest month. It should cool down to the upper 90s pretty soon.

Thank you. I always think of spring and summer where you are as having temperatures around 25c but not around 35c or higher.

It's been hot here too but probably not as hot as Texas. I have the a/c going along with an oscillating fan. My old dog Gizmo sleeps in front of the fan.

Best to stay inside if it's hot. I don't fancy going out if it's that hot too.

Glad you liked that song. Yeah, it really is. Right now poor Roscoe is panting like crazy yet he's been inside most of the afternoon. Swamp coolers only cool it off a little in here but it's still kinda warm. It's 105f with 5% right now.

Bibsy and Tinker are in for the night, but it is hot in here. Lady snuck out. I have Bibs in the office with me with a/c and a fan. I feel like this sudden heat is awful and she has a long fur coat. It is only 90F here.

I've read that those long coats some kritters have will actually insulate them from heat as well as cold. I'll bet the kind of 90f you have includes a lot of humidity, that's a lot worse than the dry heat we get.

I simply stay indoors and when I'm out I turn on the water and get the tree leaves wet, it helps cool things down ..... it was 101f in the shade this afternoon.
