Only 9 days 'til summer. A lovely, cool, wet, Spring morning here. 35.6 deg. F, 73% humidity. :shock:

And our three mountain ranges, to the North, West, and South, all have a new coat of snow this morning. :o

Normally I don't like air conditioning blowing directly on me, but every spring there comes a day when I must move the vents in the car to do so. This spring it was April 14. The high was 103 and the low 76.

This morning at 6:30 when I left for work, the car said it was 95 out. And the afternoon temps? Consistently at or above the hundred teens. A couple of weeks ago when it was technically still spring, after work, after the car had sat in the desert sun all day, the car thought it was 129 out. After a 20 minute commute, the thermometer had stabilized at the real ambient temperature, all the way down to a brisk 115.

It's dry heat, not humid heat, and for that I'm thankful, but still when it gets into the hundred teens, it's blast furnace hot out. You don't realize how much you're perspiring because it evaporates so fast. Thank goodness for AC.

Y'awlll both stay cool, 8-) OK?

Mr. chawlie, our LSU-grad's mom is home from 'The Sand Box' 'til sometime in August and amongst other Stuff and Thangs she held forth about was the "dry heat" thereabouts.
A fuuny young lady to the Nth degree, she did not joke about the whipping sand storms, which can actually cut into the skin. Among other gifts, she brought home a plethora of decorative scarves that folks wear in defense of such sand storms. The scarves clearly reflect the region's love of colorful dress. LOL about the A/c: One day overby my mudder-inlaw's crib, she sat directly in front of a window A/C unit for only a bit then said something along the lines of ''I gotta move; this is way to cold!'...Ah well, like the late, great McDonald Carey would intone on that famous Soap Opera -- in which he announced its opening and also starred in it -- "Like Sands through the hour glass, so Are The Days Of Our Lives." Y'awll stay safe, cool and here's hoping Mr. Sand Man will bring Y'awll some dreams-come-true!
