40, 60, 70 80 90… 100


Think cool thoughts!  



The cold chill of winter is just a distant memory and today in my neck of the woods they say that temps will reach 98 with a heat index of 115!  It is only early morning and it is already 82 degrees.  I apologize to you heat lovers but I am not a happy camper. Temps like this are just too darn hot.

My daughter is on vacation in Florida and a quick check on their weather forecast reveals that Florida temps are at this moment in the 70’s and will only reach 92.  What the heck is wrong with that picture?  I mean Florida is the land of palm trees and tropical sun? 

 My son, who is in the Air Force in Minot, N. D. tells me his temperature is in the 40’s and may reach 60 as the day wears on.  Here in Va. Most of the time even in the dead of winter temperatures don’t often go too far below 40.  

I guess I will just have to think cool thoughts, look over my photos of the rare blizzard of 2010, sip an ice tea and not leave the cool comfort of air conditioning for the next few blistering hot days.

Today my friend Judy Admamson has featured a guest post by me on her blog. Thanks Judy! Judy is a fantastic artist and creates the most beautiful paintings and Greeting cards.  Please stop by and visit her, you’ll be glad you did!

Good Morning, Crystal! I am sorry about your heat wave - I prefer weather in the 70s, the extreme heat wipes me out.
Hope you get a break soon.
Will check out your guest spot :D

I feel cooler just looking at this picture and it isn't even hot where I am. I've even got a pot of soup simmering on the stove. Hope you get some relief from the heat soon.

I'm with you Crystal! It's way too hot and the heat index's are staggering.

Love the "cool" aceo!

I like your beautiful white horse. I think you have two options, either north or upload tevas the intensity of air conditioning.

I'm with you Crystal! I do not like extreme heat! We've only had it for about 3 days here, otherwise, it's been nice! Lucky us for now! Have a great day!

Betsy said...

UGH! That is miserable! We were in the high 90's. It wouldn't be so bad if the humidity would leave! Stay cool!

Wanda said...

Love your horse painting.

Yes, crazy weather. I'm still waiting for sun in "Sunny Southern CA" Overcast again today.

Will check out Judy. Thanks for the link.

We had two days of extreme heat during which our AC broke down! It has cooled off now & we got a new AC so we're ready for the next wave. Hope you get some relief soon!
