“But it’s a DRY heat”…..
The forecast for this upcoming weekend is pretty much a death sentence for some folks around here.
109 degrees two days in a row?
Yeah, to say we aren’t used to that kind of shit is a major understatement.
The elderly and the poor who don’t have air conditioning or a way to escape that kind of heat are going to be extremely vulnerable.
We are talking forty degrees above normal here for this time of year and high temperature records are looking to get shattered.
It’s only about 80 outside right now and while I was outside watering some stuff in preparation for this heatwave a little bit ago my fucking tongue was hanging out already.
I was supposed to work Sunday and Monday both but took Sunday off earlier this week when the Wifely Unit’s Mom passed away. I didn’t know what I was going to be dealing with nor how long so I just took it off to be safe.
Monday is still going to be a killer.
You can’t work in that kind of heat around here, all you can do is go into survival mode.
Now that I think about it, I’m going to go grab some ice and bottled water and stick it in an ice chest out in the garage a bit later this afternoon. Right now I am doing some laundry so the wife won’t have to deal with and run the damn dryer while the A/C is trying to cool the joint down.
I do anticipate a knock down drag out argument about her habit of leaving the back sliding door open with a screen over the opening, “So the cat’s can get in and out”.
With the A/C running full blast.
Fuck them fucking cats, those sonsabitches aren’t stupid. They are going to be hiding out wherever they can find the coolest spot and that will be the bedroom.
I may have to throw a couple of them in the corner and lock myself in the fucker with them.
