EVEN THE TRAMPOLINE IS ABANDONED TODAY

My Southern readers and those from the Mideast and similar areas will scoff, but those from Western New York and other Northern climes will agree:

It’s hotter than hell out there today!

Here in Buffalo, NY, there are usually only a few days during the summer where the temperature gets into the 90’s (Fahrenheit).  Today is one of them, and it is muggy.

I spent the morning making phone calls to verify my new health insurance and to make sure all my providers have the current information.  Then, having already gone out for a quick doctor’s appointment, I have the entire rest of the day to play around with.  What to do?

Even Puppy Cody won’t stay outside for more than 5 minutes at a time.

So, a quick nap for both of us.

And the balance of the day?  Cold, cold (but nutritious 🙂 ) food, and videogames in a darkened room, with the air conditioning and fan  both running.

Works for me.

    We’ve been hot and dry but Maddie still likes to sit outside. We indulge her, but only in the shade of a tree or umbrella.

  3. We are due for a heatwave next week. Cue muggy nights, stifling days, and despite everything being open on the boat, no through draft! Poor Maggie doesn’t know where to put herself, so we just make sure there is space on the bench for her to strecth out if she doesn’t want to sleep on the bed with us (yeah, I know) and that her water bowl is constantly replenished. We have been known to leave the covers open and the hatchways as we sleep, but then have to be careful with night bugs being attracted to any lights. Still, mustn’t complain, the silly season of rain, wind and snow will soon be upon us.

    • We need rain, but I only want it if it will bring the temperature down. I sure don’t want more mugginess!

      • It brings it down temporarily, but we are in some kind of super-hot weather pattern in the northeast. From Montreal through Maryland, it’s be hot, hot, hot. If it’s also super dry, I start to fear from my water supply … and living as we do in the woods … fire. It’s tinder in there. All it would take is a couple of sparks.
