Hot as Hell

We are having a terrible heat wave.

I realize, the same is true for many other parts of the country.

Last (hot!) Thursday, our air conditioning started making a loud noise and emitting an odd odor.

I promptly turned it off before we all died.

(There are big “asphyxiation” warning stickers on it, after all.)

On Friday morning, our air conditioning repair people showed up.

The a/c unit is still under warranty – thank goodness!

Unfortunately, the parts needed to fix the unit had to be ordered.

Did I mention record breaking heat?

Oh, and HUMIDITY … something we don’t normally get much of here.

Have I told you about Boob Sweat?

It’s a terrible condition – and I have it!

Polka Dots @ SHaggerty 2013 W-1

Sweaty Boobs!  And my polka-dot bra ….

[Unrelated aside:  Someone will ask so ….. The necklace is Power to Overcome by Pyrrha.]

Did I also mention my entire family is in cooler places and/or air conditioning this weekend –

Except for me (and poor Mocha)?

A few of them are returning this morning – they won’t believe the high temperatures IN the house when they get home.

I am GASPING for breath.

I’m trying *not* to be home except when I have to.

I put ice cubes in Mocha’s water bowl.  I’ve been fanning her too.

Briefcase very sternly told me not to spend money on a hotel just prior to leaving on a trip … where he’s staying in an air conditioned hotel.

Today, Sunday, is supposed to be the hottest day of the heat wave.

Temps at my house are predicted to reach 104 or higher.

Hopefully the air conditioner will be repaired on Monday – fingers crossed.

In the meantime?

Well, I might not make it much longer.

Mocha and I have been googling pet-friendly hotels …..

    I can barely speak about this heat. Yesterday was 110, today 113, Monday 111. We have a top of the line Trane and it’s barely keeping up. If not for the animals, I’d be finding a little place at the coast for the week.

      The animals … the poor animals. I know I’m worrying nonstop about Mocha.

    Run for your life to any pet friendly hotel… poor you… poor Mocha…A/C units are notorious for breaking when over taxed by high heat for too many days in a row. I hate to say it, but we are hoping those temps stay on the West Coast and not head our way after they are done abusing you.

      It really is BAD.
      I hope it doesn’t head your way!

    124 here yesterday. Forecast for the same today. We are scrambling with our irrigation. Transpiration sucks. And I can relate to the boob sweat, although you aren’t getting a pic of the male equivalent. But I can assure that my soaked Hanes weren’t polka-dotted. 🙂
