ninth consecutive day of temperatures of 80 degrees F or higher

Wut Clod said. Still, allowing for humidity and lack of air conditioning, it's ... mildly unpleasant.


That's not a heat wave. This is a heat wave:

After an Indian Summer, the weather has finally borken.
It's been humid for the last two days (which has made me sweat like a racehorse), but today was sunny, breezy and with a drop in temperature.

In the last 20 minutes the rain has begun to pound against the window.

I'm wondering if the drop in pressure is what's making me weepy.
I haven't cried without a specific trigger for a long time now.

From the sound of things it will be wellies and leggings and a vest to walk in. Then blouse and skirt and ballet shoes inside.

Mum doesn't get that wearing a jacket or coat does not help in the rain. If you are walking a mile, you can keep your head and shoulders dry with an umbrella. But arriving steaming like a faulty kettle because of an extra layer is never going to appeal.

Still, it's evocative and safe when it's chucking it down outside, esp as I know both cats are warm and dry.

Being dry is the key, letting your own body's moisture regulate your temperature via sweating. Rain... rain I know.

This season's weather though? WTF. Yesterday was the first snowfall of the season here, at Paradise Lodge, 80 miles to the south and about 5000 feet up from my location. I celebrated this news by clipping a couple stems of new rose blossoms from my front yard. And I have a dozen buds that will open over the course of the next week. Roses in mid October? I can't keep track anymore. But they do smell wonderful.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. -- Marcus Aurelius, philosopher and writer (121-180)

It's gonna be 80 here tomorrow.

It's really nice out - blue blue skies and gold sun showing off but, honey, 80 is too damn much for me even in October.

We actually had snow here in town yesterday. It NEVER snows so early around here! Then we had a cold snap last night. I have (had) two huge tubs of flowers by my front door that I didn't think to cover. So much for them.

My cats took one look at the weather yesterday and haven't been outside since.

80s last couple of days, with lows in the high 40s/low 50s.

It's been pretty damn nice around South Central lately.

ETA: A bit dry, though. We'll be breaking the law if'n we have a fire tonight.

PDX has one of those dreary, damp days in between summer and the rainy season...

That doesn't start until Nov 15th at 2:45 am
