I would just stay indoors!

During the day I did. I did drive out to do an errand around 5 and it was pretty punishing in heavy traffic under the glaring sun. My car air conditioner isn't working. In the evening, I sat out on the patio. It was still hot but I don't mind it at night.

Yesterday's weather here was what the weather is like in New Orleans -- for five months straight. Blazing hot and humid all day every day, and hot and sticky through the night. I lived there six years, five of which I had no car air conditioning, and because I was a newspaper reporter I had to drive around a lot.

I still prefer New Orleans' summers to Minnesota winters. But I felt sorry for New Orleans children; they're out of school in the summer just like everyone else, except it's the time of year when it's far more comfortable indoors.

I guess when I say "New Orleans" I'm actually talking about much of the South and the Sun Belt. I've been in weather like that in Washington, DC, too. I walked around with a spray bottle of cool water.

And some friends in Memphis said they can't sit out on their patio and barbecue on a July evening. (I'd probably sit out anyway -- I did in NOLA.)

I really don't enjoy being outdoors when it's that hot/humid.  I don't feel comfortable at all!

Hello Bettermost friends!

Grin

It was nice having a day off in the middle of the week!  Tomorrow is pay day and Friday!

Have no plans this weekend, so it should be a quiet one for me!   Next week at work will be busy!  We have meetings going on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  I think tomorrow will be a late night at work, to make sure we are prepped for Monday!

Hello Bettermost Friends!


After having to use the A/C on a daily basis, We have a break today!   The heat isn't too bad, and there is no humidity!  I am able to turn the A/C off and open the windows and let some fresh air into the apartment.

Went outside for a bit, and then  did my grocery shopping, so that chore is now done!

Even managed to find a small guest in the place (a spider) and get him onto an envelop and transfer him to the outside windowsill.  I watched him run off and down the end of the sill, so he's out of my place now.  Some bugs always find a quick end in my place (wasps, hornets, centipedes) but I try to save spiders, as they get rid of other pests.   As long as they aren't too big/fast, I will catch them and put them out.

I'm with you, Chuck1 I keep a "bug jar" at the ready to re-home critters that crawl or otherwise relocate themselves inside!

I've seen some devices that supposedly will capture a bug, and then release it outside.

I leave spiders alone unless they're really big, which they're usually not. I just watched a small one crawl across my bathtub.

Wasps, hornets and bees I would try to let out if I could do it safely (if they were up against a window and I could just open it or something). Centipedes gross me out too much to do anything about them. I just watch in horror as they crawl away to wherever they're going next.

The other night I found a Junebug trapped inside a window. My son grabbed it and put it outside.

At least in Minnesota we don't really have cockroaches. Don't get me started on the cockroaches in New Orleans. I'll say only this: Some people keep geckos roaming free in their homes specifically to eat the cockroaches. That seems like an OK idea if you don't mind the thought of going into your dark bathroom some night, reaching for the light switch, and having your hand come down on a gecko.

A few months ago the New Yorker ran a terrifying story about stinkbugs. It began with this couple who went into their bedroom one night and found every single surface covered with stinkbugs. Apparently they're invading the entire country. Hopefully the "every single surface" scenario will be a rarity.

Then of course there's my other bug terror ... bedbugs.

Mosquitoes I kill with a clean conscience. That's just self defense.

Spiders get a reprieve from me.  Mosquitoes are on the kill list, as are wasps, hornets and yellow jackets.  The only time they get out is if they are on the screen, and I can safely raise the screen and lower the window.  I then tap on the window until they fly off.

If bees were to get into the apartment, I would do my best to get them out without killing them.

Have not encountered cockroaches. thankfully!

Ugh!

I worked 5 hours later than I usually do, and I'm tired!

I will probably have to do it tomorrow too!   Should make for a good overtime paycheck!
