Has anyone else ever put ice cubes into their washing machine? Can you believe that it gets so hot here that tap water can’t get cold? It’s lukewarm at its coolest. I don’t get the opportunity to choose to wash clothes in cold water. Oh sure, I can choose the cold setting, but there will be no cold water pouring out of the spout. I’ve actually put ice into my washing machine to help cool down the water at least a little. Thank God for my refrigerator’s ice machine.
I turned on the sprinklers. All I got was steam. ~ author unknown
Step outside (where I live), and it will feel like someone just threw a hot, wet blanket over your body, including your face. It’s constant, doesn’t let up, and we won’t see relief until late October or early November. I feel like I’m stuck in a submarine where some rooms are air conditioned and some are hotter than a sauna, but there is no way to escape out of the vessel. In other words, it’s claustrophobic, and I have claustrophobia. Anxiety issues have a tendency to rear up this time of year.
Looking on the bright side, at least it’s a great day to go outside, jump into my car and roast marshmallows. ~ author unknown
Waiting 8 to 10 more weeks for this to break seems like an eternity. Not to mention that we are now in the peak of hurricane season. Oh, did I mention that we have Hurricane Isaac headed toward the gulf states? Can’t imagine what this “submarine” will be like if it knocks out power.
I promise not to devote another entire post (this year) complaining about the heat, but I may refer to it within text here or there.
In the meantime, I’m trying to stay cool as I dream of the retirement years when we will be living farther north (preferably near some mountains). For now, I’m praying that a dangerous creature named Isaac, veers off course.
At least I don’t need snowshoes to trudge through high humidity. ~ author unknown
