It is HOT as H-E-L-L outside! Shit, it's hot as hell inside! Our temps have reached 100 for the past few days. I don't think my air conditioner has gone off. Seriously, it runs 24/7. By the time it reaches the temp I have set it's 4 a.m. I know this because I was up at 4 a.m. this morning when it finally went off. Only to come back on 45 min. later and it hasn't shut off since.
It is 100 outside right now and it's funny because my weather bug says the heat index is 173! Ha, it must be lying, although it really does feel that hot! It is 82 degrees in my house right now, that's as far as it can cool. They say that it can only cool 15 degrees below what the temperature is outside so I'd say it's doing pretty good to get it down to 82! I have all the ceiling fans on plus another big floor fan in the back of the hallway.
It's even to hot to swim! We've been swimming everyday but it's just gotten to the point to where we can't take it anymore. Jumping in the pool should be refreshing, right? Well, not here! The pool water is just as hot as the actual temperature! And jumping into a HOT pool is not cool! So today we skipped the swim and stayed in but then the kids (all 5 of them! my 3 plus the little girl I watch and my nephew) were going crazy being stuck in the house. We tryed to go outside but just couldn't do it. They'd get all sweaty and red faced within minutes of being out there. I was drenched and I was sitting still AND in the shade!
Louisiana summer's SUCK! Please someone send some cool no COLD air our way!
