heat vs Rain and ick!

  1. as much as everybody complained about the heat, and their grass, etc etc blah blah blah!

    i loved the high 80's/low 90's and sun all the time! you can go out and do anything and go anywhere!

    today it is gloomy and rainy! i hate it! nothing to do, but hope it clears up!
    i have been outside everyday it was hot and sunny! as long as i have my ac for the night to go to sleep!

    It is so hot and humid here that it feels like 105 with the heat index. If we do go outside we are back inside after about 40 minutes. I watched the news today and we have continued to break records set back in 1944 and it looks like this will continue into Monday at least. If it were not for AC I don't know what we'd do. It is too hot to go to the pool, all my kids are so fair they burn even with sun block (70spf)
    I cant wait until fall!!!!!!! Bring on the rain!

    I don't mind 80's but 90's and humidity yuck!!!!!
    I'm an avid gardener so I appreciate a good rain.
    My ideal weather is mid 80's no humidity with lows in the 60's at night.

    on rainy days when time allows me, i love to watch westerns while in bed. sleeping is a great way to spend the day inside too. we had a "few drops" of rain a little while ago. we need it bad!.

    Gator, I have to second your message! We have not had rain for almost 4 weeks! Everything is parched and wilted, even the weeds, and they'll stand up to anything! Trees are dying, and in the mountains the leaves are already changing. It is going to be a "brown" fall, not a pretty one.

    It is just amazing-people are drowning in the floods in Europe, and we are just a spark away from losing a lot of forested land and maybe houses, up where I live. It is scaaary!

    Rick, good to see you making appearances in the neighborhood again! Come on down, and I'll let you mow and weed eat our yard. Don't worry-we have AC and very cold Molson's XXX! LOL! :spin:

    i can't believe all you rainers!

    sorry could do without it!
    although kaycee (lynn) you should be happy today, it's raining here and in pittsburgh.
    i was watching the forcast. if it wasn't going to rain, i was going to ride my motorcycle to pittsburgh tonight, to visit my friend dave. guess it will have to wait until another time.

    I can't stand heat and humidity, not only is it extremely uncomfortable, its also difficult to breathe. We've had more code red air quality days this year than any other I can remember. We've also continued to break heat records, I can't wait for it to cool down.

    We also need rain. I love a rainy day when I have nothing to do... nothing encourages a lazy day in bed with the wife, the dogs, and the remote like a gray, cool, rainy day.... then you can open the window.... listen to the rain fall.... watch Court TV all day....
    *sigh*

    well, being in vegas i actually like the summer (with the exception of my power bill). being from texas though i miss the rain. i like rain on a warm day.we played out in the rain when i was a kid. we used to go out and race sticks down the ditch outside my house. or cover ourselves with mud, cause my older sister told us it would keep the mosquitos off of you. seriously though. the feel of the weather when it is raining is refreshing to me. :roll
