I didn't think it got that hot there. But most people have AC in their homes and/or workplaces, don't they?

Heat like this is rare. only once or twice a year usually. For that reason most folks don't have AC in house. Though 90% of business do.

So it can be pretty dangerous. Particularly for those who aren't careful about their exposure.

Here we go semi nocturnal during heat advisory time. Doing our active chore at dawn and after dusk and hiding/sleep through the heat of the day.

It works for us

We had 100 degrees here a few years ago, for I think 2 or 3 days in a row. I had some kind of bug on top of it, with a fever.

I have no AC, windows only open a few inches (the couple that open at all), and zero air circulation. I had to sit here typing all day. I have never in my life been so close to calling 911. I thought I was actually going to die.

Do not want!

ya know in Oregon and most places I have live a dwelling with "zero air circulation" and windows as you describe won't be a legal? Hels here if you have to have a minimum of two door like exits in case of fire.

So we run hotter than y'all. Huh won't have imagined that at all.

Hopefully this will be our last heat advisory although we will have had plenty of heat thru mid October.

After 15 years North of Seattle I like all the warmth and light. Just not when it gets super intense. Of about 90. That messes with me hard. Or can if I am not careful.

On a happy not my gardens are loving the heat even if I am not enjoying hauling water twice a day.

I have two doors. Just can't have windows open when you're ground level. I already had someone break in. (I'm shocked it was only that one time!)

Through the years I've learned that I can handle heat but not humidity. I'll take 90 and dry over 75 and humid any day! I can't breathe. I also have zero energy, I feel clammy/sticky, and I want to kill things.

I feel clammy/sticky, and I want to kill things.
sounds like a reasonable reaction.

It's too bad you had a break in. I have been extremely lucky. That and I have always lived up multi stair flights.

glad to hear you have fire exits. Super important that.

I do okay in heat if I am shaded to point as long as I got air movement. Intense sun kicks my ass. But then we always knew I was Vampire.

On the good side of the ledger, at least Himself is getting some opportunities to learn about something we would consider "chores", even if it's not the medium to medium-heavy work we grew up with. (Considering we live somewhat more urbanized than my parents did, and we're not going your parents' route...) I honestly don't consider us having Himself help you haul water to be "abusive", no matter what the other kids around may think about it.

Although I do find it amusing that some of them appear to be actually horrified that we expect him to do some work...

LOL they do don't they?

Had to laugh today when he insisted I get up so we could water afore it got hot. He's figuring it out. Slowly. No he won't be laboring like I did but then he does enjoy what chores we assign and Gods know I appreciate a laundry elf.

And he was super proud of buying those books today with money he earned.

Parenting win.

Yup. The infection has set in, and is becoming well-established.

At least we're making sure he's subject to the right addictions. I don't know if books are cheaper than drugs in the long run, but at least they're reusable. I haven't seen that anyone has had much luck re-snorting cocaine...

Yup. The infection has indeed.

I was a bit weirded out buy the junk jewelry but boy does he love it. Must be all the D&D in his blood. LOL

Need to make sure his Reader is well stuffed afore November. Much lighter than a bag o books.
