Thursday, August 30, 2007's HOT

It's been pretty toasty here for a while. Usually, it's not so bad as long as you stay inside, right? WRONG. I took a picture of our thermostat yesterday. Mind you, this is the temperature INSIDE our house. Outside, it was just a tad bit warmer. Do you see the needle? It's pointing well past 90 degrees. Delightful.

We have central heat but no central air. (cool air, that is) The AF very lovingly gave us this house with a monster swamp cooler (it is so ancient that it looks like it just got lifted from the swampy abyss) and it really doesn't work after it gets to be 75 degrees outside. After that, it just works like a heater. So we keep it off (we are super smart, right?). So, are you enjoying the end of summer? Pretty soon, we'll be crisp and cool. But for right now, Long Live the Shade!

Oh Shaina! Howmiserable!

It is pretty hot here in Phoenix. But it doesn't matter what the temputure is like outside if your INSIDE is nearly as hot!

Yesterday it hit 112 degrees. Even Warren who works outside in the heat -all day-everyday- had a hard day yesterday.

But boy am I SO thankful for our A/C! Our thermostat is set to 77 right now...but the price we pay from our pockets is pretty hefty to be this comfortable. Since we have the 2 story home...we have 2 A/C units! Both floors are set to 77. OUCH on the pocket book!

Warren and used to live in a home with only a swamp cooler. HERE IN PHOENIX...hello that was absolutely ridiculous! I hated the 2 summers we lived there and vowed to NEVER go back to swamp coolers again.

Hang in there! Hopefully the cooler wether hits your place earlier then here. We don't start cooling down to a comfortable tempurature until Halloween. :S

Love the blog. I guess now I have to start writing in mine.
Anyway, if you guys need to escape, you are always welcome over here. 90+ inside is just too much.
