Well it is now officially hot in SW OK, last two days have been over 110, today and tomorrow are supposed to be over 110 too. Happily Sunday is supposed to bring a cold front and a chance of rain, so the highs are only supposed to be around 100 to 105 next week.

Saw on the weather channel this morning, the 7 day forecast actually had 3 days under 100. Wednesday we hit 112 and missed the all time high record for OKC by 1 degree, set in 1936. I suppose our friends in Phoenix are snickering at us just a bit though.

Wow a sinkhole, I've never seen one either. Around here all we get are large cracks in the yard.

Walter, Got up at 5 this morning and it cooled down to 85 degrees! Almost put on a jacket! :jester: 110 for a couple days and one day it hit 112. Triple digits here for a couple weeks now and not much relief in sight. The heat and drought knocked the heck out of the second cutting for hay, it's all burnt up! My 3 acre pond, which is underground spring fed has dropped 3 1/2 feet! Most run off ponds have dried up and animals have to be watered from tanks. We need rain bad! PJ

Meanwhile... our Sam's Club has a shipment of heaters on display. It's never too early to think about the upcoming frigid winter that will soon be here, in Florida, maybe in January, for a few nights - <span style="font-style: italic">maybe</span>. :rolleyes:

Heheheh.... I pulled the '69 Lawn Boy out today. Been in storage since last fall. Fired on the first pull.
Key point. tank and carb were dry. poured fresh gas-mix in today.
the regular mower here is a 71 John Deere with a Tecumseh motor. That's a fires-on-the-first-pull mower too.
Off to the market for goodies now. Burger, dogs, beer... C'mon over!
Gonna do old-time campfire popcorn later. None of that Jiffy-pop stuff....

The rest of the country is just learning what it's like to live in Phoenix. :smile:

I have some plaster work to do outside. I'm waiting until midnight to do it. It should be hopefully cool enough then for the stuff to not cure on the trowel.

It is such a nice day today the temp is just over 100, and there is a nice breeze. It feels great, played outside this morning with my daughter, she just had her 3rd birthday party yesterday and just had to play with her new electric princess car. I hope all week stays this nice.

I cut all three sprigs of weeds/grass on ~my~ plot, cut the neighbor's grass out of courtesy. They're on vacay.

the regular mower here is a 71 John Deere with a Tecumseh motor.

Unfortunately, Tecumseh doesn't seem to be making engines any more - at least lawn mowers.

Only internal combustion doo-hickey that thrives on neglect!

Unlike our beloved LBC's.

I remember years ago hearing a preacher talking about how hard it is to preach about heck in Arizona. He said for 1/3 of the year it's too nice for anyone to care and for 2/3 of the year it's too hot for anyone to be impressed.

That's not only accurate, but hysterical!

There's more brimstone going across the parking lot than can be delivered in most sermons.

Well, had a good soaking rain today (needed) Went out for dinner, ate on the patio, got home and went for a lovely drive! Was supposed to be a cruise night - there wasn't but just a gorgeous evening. Put the car away, got in the house turned off the AC and opened all the windows. Loving the breeze and it is supposed to get down into the 60's tonight, wonderful!

Don,

Once you settle in the Charleston, SC area 89.2 will be considered a cool-down temperature. Your "Uncle" threshold will have to increase...

DrEntropy
08-06-2012, 07:07 AM
:iagree:

A bit further down, we're averaging low-to-mid 90s. That'll last into September. Our "upside" is we rarely see 100.

You guys forget one important item
I don't mind the temp out doors .It's the 90 degrees indoors that is a killer.
It is 7AM and still about 80 in my office.
We here in the NW don't have AC.
You think I got any sleep last night??

Way too long &amp; high sometimes - now it's overcast
&amp; drizzling.
One reason that I'll never own a Gray car.

Your 85 inside looked...lousy? I have a friend in Portland, ME that doesn't have AC except in her bedroom. They've had days in the 90s and apparently it's been miserable in the house.

I use lithium batteries, they seem to show low/empty for a long time before it dies. I'm getting to be like a guy waiting to see how long the gauge stays on "E" before the car dies :smile:

That wasn't even the hot part of the day and that was in the coolest room in the house

This is my temperature readout in the backseat of the airplane just before we landed after a 3.5 hour photo mission. The "outside" probe is in the camera bay with the doors shut and it heats up a little, so it wasn't true outside air temp.

I can't wait for fall!
