WOW! As a Floridian born and bred the ideal of living without AC is just strange.....

Wow... I feel for ya'll! It's like that here in Florida most of the time but we are largely used to it (as used to it as one can get) and nearly everything is air conditioned, except for some of the oldest houses. We spend our summers running from one air conditioned box to another, basically. Be safe and keep hydrated!

I've been completely OUT of the loop here at SP...but I'm back now. In my hot, hot office writing down my food intake for the day. Hubby & I would go to a mall or movie, but I don't want to leave Jazzie! My poor lab goes from the tile in the bathroom to the shade under a tree for relief. I soak her with the hose to help. Our only salvation is a pool which we jump into every hour or so.

It looks like some new people to get to know...and a few from the Northwest. Hi from Bellevue, WA!

I'm in Eastern WA. We're on our way to 109 today. Luckily things are cooling off on the west side where most people don't have the fabulous invention called air conditioning.

I'm frequently down in California, to go boating with my family, and it's always in the triple digits, but no humidity, so it's very tolerable... this here sucks!

I'm in Seattle Wa. and MAN! This is really HOT! All my hubby and I have is a little fan and we can't walk away from it for long.
I'm most worried about my pet Chinchilla. They can't stand heat much over 70 degrees. She is over 10 years old, (very old for a chinchilla pet) and I have to keep a ice pac in her cage. Poor lil thing.

OOPS forgot...

I'm in Bremerton, on the water (the Sound)

If you click the MyDarlingDump link in my signature below, their is a picture of my view. I think about two posts down...

Bremerton is to my left and Port Orchard is to my right, I'm on a hilltop between the two (not in city limits).

My husband actually remodeled our entire basement a few years ago and while he was at it, he had the guys who did the duct work get everything ready for air conditioning, so we are in the process of having that installed, hopefully, within the next week. But, until then... it's HOT. :-)

I hope you all have air conditioning.

In California, we didn't have it and the heat waves were tough, when we had them. When we had a chance to move to Texas, I knew it was hotter, but there would be air conditioning.

I am about 15 miles north east of Bellingham, WA and it's 98 degrees right now- only 2:35 in the afternoon. It's supposed to get to 101. Ugh! :-)

I was born in and lived in Oregon... one summer, I remember it being 114F! Now I'm in Florida where 91F feels worse than 114 because of the humidity. I bet you do have to be more careful though, dehydration can set in before you realize it!

I was wondering where our summer weather went -- it seems you have it in the Pac NW! I'm happy to have yours in trade -- cool and dry. Yummy. Loving it. Haven't had the air conditioner on in weeks!

This team has lots of members in the Pacific northwest. It's hot there now, like Texas! I hope you all are coping--be sure to drink more liquids!

Kris, is your gym's AC fixed?
