Not even 10 o'clock and the heat index is already 100 F/38 C. The cats are already laying on the rocks in the driveway to try and cool off (laying there lets air circulate under them because of the rocks). I normally don't turn my A/C unit on until about 3 PM, but I'm getting ready to turn it on. Bleh.

It was cool this morning. In the afternoon it got dark, I heard thunder, I was ready for a happy dance... the sun is back and we had no rain.

@marlina I went out for a walk in the morning, today is cooler than yesterday but I have a bad back ache, I am sure it was the air conditioning in the grocery store, I hate A/C.

We're tempted to do that here sometimes, but our bill would skyrocket for sure!

I told my brother I was feeding the squirrels peanuts so they could baste from peanut oil on the inside for extra flavor. Yeah, “ Stupid° F” is right. Wait till it gets ridiculous° F later in the day.

The squirrels were laying in the grass on their tummies, trying to stay cool. Kobe thought they were acting crazy!

It's 5 pm and temperature here still is 38°C .it's difficult to survive here without AC, air coolers are useless these days. My AC of bedroom was in breakdown since last two days so we were sleeping in our drawing room as we have another one . Thank God the person came to repair it today and it's okay now.

The only room I have a/c is the living room, but I have a large high-speed fan in the bedroom (if it is still too hot I sleep on the living room couch)

@myklj999 we have two but the one which is in drawing room is not much effective as it's connected to kitchen and the gallery which goes to the other rooms and we don't have the doors there so have just put the curtains. It was difficult for us to sleep from last two days

@sjvg1976 Mine cools the living room and kitchen, and I have a heavy blanket hung at the beginning of the hallway to keep those two rooms separate from the rest of the house.

But you are having sunny weather. In Kolkata in India it is just raining and raining.

I do not want sunny weather when it is reaching 46.6 C in the afternoon (as it did the day I wrote this discussion), I would rather have rain (like I am today)

It cooled down outside last night after a brief rain shower, but got really warm in the house after that. Go figure.

We keep our AC on all the time. We're too old to be uncomfortable! :-) I feel bad enough for people that are uncomfortable in this weather; but I feel even worse for the animals that live in houses without AC. Stay cool and stay hydrated!

That's a lot for the morning. Summer only comes once a year, you may as well turn A/C on now.

I get under $850 USD monthly to cover everything...food, fuel, utilities, etc. I have to monitor how much electric I use to keep my bill manageable.

@myklj999 Power bills in summer can get high. We still use fans. You might try to switch A/C off earlier, hopefully fresh air will last for long.

The outside cats here not do this early every morning, They go out in the yard and to the driveway and then lay down on the pavement, Usually, that is their place until afternoon, I stay in my cool workroom and I have fans blowing in the other rooms,
