Oh god, for real? I’m having trouble sleeping because of a cold, and even with AC it’s kinda toasty in here. 

So naturally, I’m wearing cat pants to sleep. WTF guys? Ugh, and as I type this Lucille just rotated slightly so I could better re-acquaint myself with her anus. 

Speaking of, highs in the upper 90s most of the week, lows that aren’t actually not even a little.

Stay cool, stay hydrated, stay safe.

If you can’t stand the heat…

So, our late summer is finally here. Temps in the 90s stretch out through the whole 10-day forecats. Many nights, lows will remain in the high 70s. Dew points will suck, the heat index will suck, and the heat will reach dangerous levels. Stay hydrated, find a cool place, and don’t do anything stupid like leaving a pet outside or in a car or anything like that. 

Wow. So, yeah. Chance of storms today and tonight, and also Monday. If you’re strange enough to want to be outside.

Woo! We enjoyed some playtime last night with the windows open for the first time since…we closed them? From Tuesday night through yesterday the weather was pretty great, and today won’t be that bad either.

Sun, high of 87 and low of 69. Tomorrow will be 87 again with a 40% chance of storms, then the 90s come back to town, uh, through next Friday. So yeah. Enjoy the weekend.

If 80 with a dew point of 69 at 9am is fair, then that witch in Snow White didn’t exactly have stiff competition, yeah?

Temps are gonna get up to Goddamn today, and we’ll have a low of Oh For Real?
