My weather is just about the same.  Though I did see on the last report that we may be in the 90s instead of the triple digits.  It is really sad when you are hoping for 90 degree weather....LOL>  

There are still 1000s of people without power in our area.   It is really scary with the temps this high.

That's why the cost of living is through the roof here in Southern California.  I won't even tell you what out weather is like this week.

Luckily my power is back on but there are thousands in my county still without electric! It is mid to hi 90's here through Sunday.

 

EDIT: I have many friends in Virginia, West Virginia, New Jersey and Maryland (DC area) without power as well.

I keep trying to convince my kids I'm moving to Alaska...it's too doggone hot for me out there.  I had heatstroke many years ago and ever since, I can't seem to take the heat.  Of course, it may just be that I've gotten hotter as I've gotten older...hmmm....wonder if they would buy that one?

It's starting to cool off a bit here, but the humidity has gone through the roof.  I wish we could just get a good thunderstorm and settle it all down.  Allergies are up because the rain hasn't settled the pollen. 

Hugs to all those still without power!

I'm with you, Barbara - too many people without power right now.  I don't know how communities are dealing with the heat when there's no electricity for fans or AC or fridges! I hope people get relief soon! The wildfires in Colorado have been devastating, too - so much loss out there.

Chicago is definitely in a heat wave - we're expected to stay in the mid 90's to near/at 100 for the rest of this week.  Very little rain, if any, is expected as most of the storms just fade before getting to us.  DH and I had our AC replaced recently but I'm knocking the temp up so it doesn't have to run all the time. The dogs are spending most of the day napping in cool spots (wood floor, etc).

Our basement is cooler so I've been spending more time down there on days off work, I'm getting a quilt loaded on my frame today. Going to get back to that soon.

we were in the thirties the other night we have finally made it to 70 during the day, but it is raining off and on with great thunderstorms.   right now the wind is whipping, which means good weather is on it's way.

I sincerely feel for all of you dealing with the extreme heat and humidity in the mid-west and east.  It must truly be miserable...especially for those without power.

I have to keep reminding myself to "be careful what you wish for"!  We had an unseasonably cool June and the ground was too cold (under 50 degrees) to even plant our corn until this last weekend.  Our days are now starting to warm up into the mid 70's with nights still in the low 40's... But, I will be glad when the nights get a little warmer so the tomatoes won't be shivering! 

Remember last winter when I was snowed in with blowing drifts?  To be honest, I would rather have that (you can always bundle  up with all these quilts)  than the exteme heat many of you are dealing with.  Just the same, we will eventually get our share of warm to hot weather (but without the humidity).  Our cross to bear will be the forest fires and smoke!  We were lucky last year and escaped without any major fires in our area...but we inevitably will have some here in the future.  As Patti and I were discussing last week, in our area you are always planning how to keep your house safe if a fire comes in your direction.

So, all of you suffering in the high temperature, keep as cool as you can and drink lots of liquids.

Apple Valley is in the high 90's but thankfully the house we bought stays cool until late afternoon.  It would be awful if the air had to run all day as the electric bills here are higher than in Florida not that it is a surprise.
