The key word here is HOT. I'm hot. Not sexy hot--although I am some of that!--not menopausal hot,--past history here--not "close to the correct answer" hot. I am it's-freakin'-90-degrees-with-70%-humidity hot! I know, it's summer, and that's how it should be, I guess. I much prefer 70 to 80 degrees with 50% or less humidity hot!

You're probably thinking, "Why doesn't she turn ont the A/C?" I'm not a big fan of artificial coolness; it too often slips over into where's-my-sweatshirt-and-mittens, when-did-we-move-to-the-Arctic-Circle coldness! Especially if my husband mans the controls.

Actually, we haven't had any really steaming days this summer--and it's nearly August--so we haven't even removed the air conditioner 's winter coat yet. I was hoping we wouldn't need to remove it at all this summer, but since the long range forecast suggests that we're looking at high 80's to low 90's and humidity, today will probably be the day.

I guess I'd better stop blogging and start looking for my winter coat and mittens!

I don't have air conditioning and luckily, we haven't needed it this summer. It has been (for the most part) pretty cool most days. It has reached in the 90's a couple of days, but we just head to the lake or river on those days! Goode luck with your situation!

Our summer has been pretty good so far. It hasn't been too hot or too humid yet (last night was the first I can remember, all summer, in which the air felt heavy at bedtime ... and then just a little).

August can bring some pretty oppressive stuff with it, but I'm hoping our luck holds.

We don't have A/C but I sure wish we did-- about 2 very long weeks a year-- When the temps rise into the 95+ range. That's when I spend the day in front of the open freeze and pray for a breeze :-)

I can tell I'm the only Texan here. It's so hot here, I don't even notice anymore because if I did, I'd only be depressed.
