Gluuuuugh.
Okay, when you can see the humidity hanging in the air, it's too damned hot. According to wunderground.com, it is presently ninety-one degrees (29C) outside my house, at 70% humidity. I dislike cold, but it's easier to warm up than cool down. I want air conditioning. Waah-waah-waah.

Please, let there be a thunderstorm. Please.

I feel a bit...: hot hot

On the north west coast we have had aprox. 17 or 18C for weeks. cloudy and depressing, the temp. is in that middle place, where it's not hot or cold, it is just uncomfortable.

I broke down, after three days of miserable asthma, and bought a portable Air Conditioning unit at Sears. It's not the smallest thing in the world, and it has some built in inconveniences (like emptying the water out every so often) but it'll fit in a closet all winter and it's on wheels and I don't have to lift it into and out of a window twice a year.

Oh, I'd love one. Don't have the $449 around at the moment, but looks heavenly.

They had similar things, cheaper, at BJs, and if you search "portable air conditioners" on google you'll see some better prices too. But that was the one that was in stock, and I needed to breathe last night. It took me less than ten minutes to set it up, once I'd read the booklet, and it cools one room very nicely. (I'm using the fan to move the air farther, but if I rearrange my bedroom I can probably put it in here another time.)

27 degrees, 75% humidity, and the longer it goes on the more I find myself longing to holiday in Nunavut. I much rather cold over hot. You can always put more clothing on, but there's only so much you can take off before you get arrested.

You should be able to get a one-room window unit (5k BTU) for about $100. However, mine is about at its limits. Yesterday I noticed that the hair dryer began making my scalp perspire before it actually finished drying my hair from the shower. Stinkin' humidity.

Sounds like your wish is being granted.

Thunderstorms forecast for the rest of the week...

As a person who lives in Florida, I only feel sympathy for you because it is likely you don't have A/C. However, I am drenched as soon as I exit the house because Florida doesn't have air, it's all lake.

Oh, yeah. If I lived in Florida, I'd definitely have air conditioning. Up here, it's just suffering through a few days like this, but yeah... dude. We've got nothing on you folks down there. You're way tougher.

Then again, we also had all those snowstorms this winter. We get the worst of both worlds in New England.

Yeah--people definitely don't live here for the weather. Well, except for meteorologists who think it's fun.

Can I interest you in some nice, drought-stricken winter weather from Sydney? Sunny days of 20-21C and low humidity (this is 4C above average and is in our WINTER!!) and nights between 4-12C depending on cloud cover and how far inland you are. Will happily accept any rain you all care to send down ... would cheerfully take 3 weeks of it.

Hmmm, sounds an awful lot like where I live (southern Wisconsin) right now. Complete with lack of air conditioning. Plus road construction. I live on a corner, and both streets are being torn up.
