Comments for Heat Wave

SunsetHeat Wave: 05/06/07

For the last week the weather forecast has been predicting that today and tomorrow would be in the 80s or 90s. It has been so foggy, cold and rainy the last few days that it was hard to believe that the weather would change so drastically. Yesterday though we had intense winds, strong enough to blow the screens off some of our windows and to cause enough of a pressure difference to give us all headaches.

This morning the wind was still blowing but by lunch time it had subsided and sure enough the temperature began to creep upwards. It's nearly eight at night and upstairs we are at 87 degrees. We have our two doors open but there is no longer enough of a wind to get any air flow through the house. Thankfully the sun is going down so at least there isn't much time for things to get any warmer tonight.

Tomorrow though will probably be one of those where I'll have to drinking a liter an hour and making sure that Harriet nurses more. I don't want either of us to get dehydrated.

"See is such a cutie patootie. I'd love you to bring her over to my house and let me cuddle her for awhile while we sit and visit. Probably she wouldn't cuddle because there would be so many new things to explore. Cute babies just make me want to squeeze them."
