It's hot almost everywhere, it seems...

I'm partial to pigeons/doves and little 'houses.'

Elenka said...

Much better today, only 88 in Maine.
Remind me about this when it's 20 below.

Sunny said...

They're demanding A/C in the pigeon condo!
This heat and humidity is horrid!

Goodness. I don't think you'll ever survive our heat and humidity.

Sharon said...

We desert people are a little more used to being stuck inside during the hot summer months. Stay cool.

Small City Scenes said...

It is supposed to warm up here this week too----not THAT hot though. Maybe getting to the 80sF. MB

We have no air conditioning in our home. I work in the attic where the temperature has exceeded 100 degrees the last few days. My poor computer has threatened to melt down on several occasions. The computer's tantrums serve as good warning for me to shut things off and descend to the first floor (the coolest floor in the house).

No air conditioning, BC? That would be unthinkable in Arizona. Last week in the Phoenix area it was 110, and the Phoenix area has 100 days per year when it is 100 degrees or more.

The cliche that it is a dry heat does have meaning, as early in the morning is fine for outdoor activities, and the evenings can be tolerable.


But just like we would not be able to tolerate cold, we understand that you folks up north are not used to the heat.

Hi Brattcat,

We're having a couple of hot days even in Astoria - some of our few per year. Most people and businesses don't have a/c here, either, because usually we don't need it. I splurged for a/c one year, but when the landlord replaced the windows it no longer fit :(

JM said...

Brattcat, I know exactly what mean! Fortunatelly it's cooler here today: 33ºC.

Leif Hagen said...

I hope some cool air will soon arrive in Brattleboro! I thought of you yesterday when the BRATT tree removal company had three trucks and equipment in our office parking lot! Drats - I didn't have my camera!

Magpie said...

Sorry to hear it is so hot and I know the humidity makes things worse. Here in this part of Arizona we get "cabin fever" during July and August when we tend to stay indoors more. Or we travel up north to the cooler temperatures.

gogouci said...

Hot here too, but afraid to complain after all the whining I did during our cold, rainy spring. We're planning on catching a couple of matinees today and maybe a trip to the coast tomorrow.

I love this. Another perfect example of how you blend a super photo, with a perfect quote. You are clever!

Jacob said...

Funny! It's nice to hear that you are experiencing nice warm temperatures. ;-)

Our temps have moderated somewhat with rainy afternoons. I don't think it's been above 90 for 3-4 days!

You'll probably wish for these temps in the middle of January?

Jacob said...

Me again. The Bolles School is a coeducational college prep school...fancy pantsy!

Lisergic Synaesthesiae said...

Here in Rome 33C° and police was so happy to hit the people manifesting for the lack of help to the earthquaked area in the Abruzzo region.

ps: I neither have an air-conditioner. Honestly I think they cause a lot of troubles to our climate.

Light and Voices said...

It is in the 80s here. I am at the dock listening to the waves coming in and rolling back out and experiencing hot breezes. Love it! Frankly, that photo of pigeons is priceless!

32° in Paris today, I hate it. Just about as much as I hate the pidjins who use my windowsills as restrooms.

Irina said...

Yes, so hot. But we have cold shower as life saver, poor cats and dogs wear 100% natural fur coats in summer.
Thank you for your kindest comments in my blog, I am sooo pleased:-)

lizziviggi said...

Ugh. Sorry to hear you're "cooped" up!

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

We are at 90° and it is hot with lots of ozone. I can't go out.

Tash said...

Wish we could even things out a bit...we are in the coastal mist, which is a better deal, considering.
Stay cool.

Tash said...

PS - very clever and fun photo.

Au and Target said...

Funny!

Bob Crowe said...

Roof rats! Let them soak up the heat. It's refreshingly normal here in the midwest.

Virginia said...

WElcome to my world. It's in the 90's everyday. we just keep right on and pray everyone's got their AC cranked up!

Where's Farmer Brown with the fans? That's my tweet for today.

Too hot!
