Keep Your Cool ~ Day 177

The weather seems to have gone from winter to summer. Spring has been missed so far. The 93 degrees is keeping me inside today. I got out earlier and checked on the bluebird eggs, gave the birds fresh water and came back inside. Between the heat and the high humidity the inside will be where you can find me. And how did we ever make it without ceiling fans! I have one in almost every room. And they are used especially this time of the year. It also cuts back on cooling costs. And I sleep better with the circulating air from the fan.

So that is how I keep my cool. I know, most of you probably could have done without this post. But I shared it just the same. For the others with hot temperatures out there, remember to stay hydrated and keep your cool.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

      • We usually have a heat wave here around the week of the 20th. I remember the heat was awful the day of the night when our best friend commit suicide in 2003. One seems to remember every detail of such times. I notice it is usually in the nineties or higher as that anniversary comes around each year. then, after that few days of heat, the temperature goes down again until the hot summer.

          • I hope, for your sake, it cools down, too. I’m so sorry Dustin’s death came just before Christmas. It would have been bad any time, but when it’s so close to a holiday like Christmas, it becomes like a shadow over that holiday forever. Our friends at church lost their young teen sun in a car accident on Dec. 23. The presents were wrapped and under the tree. They had two other children, both younger, who didn’t really understand, and one asked who got to open their missing brother’s presents. For several years after that, the family took a Christmas vacation trip out of the area so that the setting would at least be different.

          • Yes, I lost him on December 9th, the tree was up, presents bought and wrapped. As if it wasn’t enough to deal with. Christmas will never be the same. Then a few years ago I lost my sister on Christmas day. A change in scenery is the best solution it seems.

  1. Well, it was 16 to 17 degrees centigrade here in Gatineau, Canada. But I must say I already miss the winter because I know summer is near and I think it will be very hot and humid (probably as high as 30 to 40 degrees centigrade with the humidex) as it happens often enough here. But at least today, it was comfortable with the hint of a slightly cool wind, just enough to keep me happy.

  2. In Torrevieja Spain is 18 Β° C 03:52 hours

  3. Hot or dry season in my terms or summer in your terms seems happens for all of us, or at least we both.hehe…
    For both of my daughter and wife, their rooms are the best place to stay by relying on air conditioning except they need something from the kitchen. Hahaha…

  4. Well our summer is about 90-95% humidity. We have a heat pump but its too expensive to use all the time. Its like breathing in warm water.
    Spring and Autumn are the best times of the year
    Winter is OK but its very cold and damp. So 1 degree is like -40 degrees below centigrade. Its also too expensive to use the heat pump all the time.

    If you are wealthy, well, money doesn’t matter to some. However, the bill of heating or cooling is far too high for most people.
    Half of Auckland population suffers from Asthma or Hayfever. Its the weather conditions, and yes we do have some pollution but nothing on the scale of other countries.
