    A cold front just came through, should last a couple of days. Oh, the temperature did not drop that much, the high is 88 instead of very low 90's. The difference is in humidity, the dew point is 70 instead of upper 70's. That is a noticeable difference. 'Feels like" is only 94.

    That actually feels comfortable. Welcome to the Gulf Coast.

    Heat wave going on for the last 2 days. Today 96*. A little hard to take when you have no AC.

    Fortunately tomorrow we go back down to 70’s.

    No! No HIGH humidity!

    I suppose that I can't really take the heat but I claim that I can. It was 84°f in our sudden swing to higher temperatures! I'm having only a little trouble adjusting and it will be about 90 ° tomorrow. I should be fine and should be fine with temperatures a little higher in a few more weeks but ...

    Humidity was in the 20's this afternoon and still indicating the recent rain. Humidity may drop into the teens some summer afternoons. Other than the difficulties this causes my sinuses, I'm not all that uncomfortable with the heat. I try to keep moving and only stay fixated on some things to drink. Strongly fixated.

    Humidity in the teens! That would help make the hot days bearable. When temps are in the 90'w with matching humidity it is Suffocating. :(

    Welllll....I am here in CO on vacation. Weather in Idaho Springs at 11AM was 70 degrees F. On Top of Mt. Evans (14,200 ft.) it was 39 degrees and most of the winter snow hadn't melted yet. Mt Evans road #1, 06-16-19.jpg
    Otherwise, rain tonight, with some hail, probably 40 degrees F. At home, the low is 60.
