    Where are all the NEnglanders, lol? It is looking like TS Andrea will be coming our way. The weatherman did say that it won't be a TS when it gets here, but we will be getting A LOT of rain - starting tonight through Sat. morning...

    Ok, tangentially related to weather lol - Anyone else in NE TIRED of the insane allergy season we seem to be having? Not even the rain has gotten rid of all the pollen here, and there is some nasty white stuff blowing all over making it look like its snowing (and making me sick as a dog!).

    And the temps have taken a nose dive... Just got a pool, and now despite having full sun on it, the water turned too cold to go in... :waiting:

    No your not GL - SWELTERING here in CT...In a house with no AC, no window units, nothin' but a fan...

    I am from CA (Bakersfield) and am used to 100+ heat, but with no humidity. It's been downright MISERABLE! It looks like some relief is coming by Sunday...

    It's low 90's here and believe you me it's cool compared to last year's triple digit heat wave for weeks. That being said it looks like we may start hitting some freakin' hot weather soon....boy oh boy will I be complaining then! It will be my whine time.

    Apparently the Great Lakes folks and us here in New England are expected to get some nasty weather later in the week? A derecho? Never heard of that one yet, will have to look up more about it. Just glancing at the weekend forecast though they're saying our areas could get sideways rain, hail, bad lightning, etc.

    I don't care though, if it cools it off, LET IT COME. Like you said, PML, it's the humidity. If it didn't feel like I was walking through water outside, it wouldn't be half so bad. Ugh!

    And boy, the weather is giving everyone road rage... Even worse than usual for us "Ma$$hole" drivers! :lol:

    It's disgusting, isn't it? My upstairs is so hot right now, walking up the stairs feels like I'm sinking slowly into warm mud. :scared:

    Our house is 2-story too (also with a basement)....DS (15) inhabits the entire upstairs and acts like it's not 110 up there, lol. I told him to come downstairs and sleep, yeah right - with mom and dad???? Luckily he knows about hydration (used to go to the ER due to dehydration, no known reason = just one of his banes) so no worries there. he eats frozen ice pops (Dr. said just like drinking water) like I drink wine :) ....

    Gardenlady, I can sympathize as we've had excessive heat in Michigan this past week. The heat advisory remains in effect until 8:00 this evening. Severe storms are predicted, and temperatures will drop.

    I've basically stayed indoors and out of the high heat and humidity. Just being outdoors long enough to water my flowers is like stepping into a sauna :eek: I ran several errands yesterday, and everyone that I talked to mentioned the excessive heat. I will gladly welcome some relief.

    Stay cool :)

    BDE have you had your storms yet? I've been trying to ask my in laws, who are in western MI, but for once of course none of them are on FB lol... :crazy: I don't see anything on radar for us yet.

    Thermometer said 99 here at about 1pm, so I'm gonna go ahead and assume we have passed the 100 degree mark at this point. Air is still disgusting, and my pool feels like dirty bath water, yuck.

    We need a fainting-from-humidity emoticon. This one will have to do for now: :thud:

    We have a breeze here in CT GL - so even at 97+ the breeze is making it more bareable (sp) :)
