    It's nice out now, in the dark, I'm going to go out and look for the TARDIS.

      Oh blarrrrgh! The only place I want to go is further north. You seriously have my respect - I couldn't live there. My idea of a vacation spot is Forks, WA, with all that rain (looked great from those Twilight movies) and the mountains...

        Ha! I only know of Dr. Who, never seen an episode. Now, if you were to look for the Enterprise...!!!!

          High today here was 106. It was around 70 early this morning but I'm afraid it won't cool off as well tonight.

            San Diegans start whinging about a heat wave if it gets over 80 and we break out the thermal undies if it gets under 60. We are very spoiled. Complete weather wimps. And like it that way.

            It was about 76 degrees here today. I know this because my coconut oil was kinda melty when I cooked with it tonight.

              I would rather be in southern AZ right now than in southeast NC. Its not as hot here, but the fucking humidity is killing me. Also, since we had a warm winter the bugs are insane. I can't even take my evening walk without gnats sticking too my neck and chest. I can't wear a v neck top because then they stick to my cleavage! I really hate it when it gets this hot, but I am glad I live right on the coast because even a few miles inland it is MUCH hotter.

                It's winter here. It was about 40-45 degrees today. Wind chill just below 40.

                Summer doesn't get that hot here. I think it's a "hot day" when we get above 70. LOL

                  110*F today, before heat index. Don't expect it to be below 100*F for a high for the next few months unless we have storms push through.
                  And yes, I AM glad it's a dry heat. I don't like having to try to figure out how to get rid of swamp ass and swamp feet.

                    That must be one of the most awesome places on earth! I would be totally happy with 70. Always wanted to visit NZ but would hate the long flight.

                    In the USMC we call that "monkey butt" and use Boudreaux's Butt Paste to clear it up. LOL! It really works wonders on lots of different things. It may not have all primal ingredients but when you have monkey butt you will do all you can to get rid of it.

                      it's not bad really. you sleep through most of it. I manage about 5-6 hours of the 13 hour flight, so not bad.

                        Boyfriend and I are considering moving to Ecuador and I'm leaning towards Quito, the capitol city. The high temperature is around mid-60s with a low of around the low 50s. Year round. Sounds heavenly to me.

                          I'm the crazy guy that likes 100 degree heat to an extent. It makes lake water feel really good, and it makes the nights warm and great. As long as sunburn doesn't happen, I can work outside in the heat too. I'm also a big fan of humidity because it keeps my skin moister.

                          Also, I don't mind it when girls start wearing less clothes either.

                            I remember all those summer nights as a kid in Killeen - family had no pool, no AC, and lived in a cracker box that just channelled all the heat. We would sleep on a cotton sheet on the floor, most of us mostly naked, so we could catch the air flow from the one oscillating floor fan the parents bought. It was miserable.

                            The only consolation was knowing that periodically a good thunderstorm system would roll through. And even that came with a price - after the flash floods were gone, we would have to clean up the whole backyard since we had a crick in the back (which would flood) and the chain-link fence around the yard would catch just all kinds of crap floating in the water... tires, garbage...

                              Here in Western Washington summer hasn't even started yet. It is piddling down rain and 56 degrees. I've had a hard time getting enough dry days to work on my garden. No heat here.

                                Sweet sunny south is mean as hell these days.. we need RAIN and not 104 degrees.
                                Imagine how ocean water is heating up with these temps so early; hurricanes waiting to happen.
