Hot Stuff - and not in a good sense
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
It is HOT outside. The temperature is breaking records for the individual dates and now it is probably going to break the record for the number of consecutive days of 100 or over. Not precisely the best environment for exercise and working out.
It does cause my appetite to be diminished, but it also is just too darned hot. Temperatures of 100 or higher are just a little too warm for my taste. The heat sort of sucks all of your energy away in a matter of minutes outside. Sleep is negatively impacted. Last night it was 87 degrees outside at 11:00 p.m.! Yes, I have A.C., but I hate to use it at night. I usually have windows open at night - fresh air - and this time of year I awaken to bird song. Last night I had to leave the A.C. on all night for the first time in a few years.
I guess what is bothering me is that it is still June, just a few days into the summer season proper and look how hot it is and how dry and how many fires. Does not bode well for the next few months, I think.
