We've got some India resources over here from Pune and they are loving this heat. They say it feels like home.

God bless air conditioning. I canít sleep comfortably in the heat, so I always crank mine up before bed. I donít understand how people can live here without A/C, but I have become spoiled and soft.

Also, I take a beating on my energy bill, but itís SO worth it.

I freely admit that I am not nearly that hardcore. Ahhhhh!

It's really amazing what a ceiling fan will do. We have one in the bedroom and I tell you, it greatly reduces the need for AC (doesn't eliminate it but it greatly reduces it).

Actually, one thing that is important to note is that I live in the country where it's normally not as hot as the city. The asphalt concentrates so much heat ... I live in 2 acres of grass and trees (near the water) and I have windows on both sides of the house so the air flows really well ... I used AC when I lived in the city.

We shouldn't have gotten rid of our pool last fall.

See, I *always* knew Ottawa was a much cooler place than Toronto. We're only hitting 35-36 today. Could hit the same humidex, though. My poor kids at his power-skating camp (they usually spend a couple of hours outside playing soccer). Then I pick him up at the end of the day and he smells like he pissed himself. And I dropped off the minivan for servicing so I can't put him in the rear seat anymore. Stupid loaner!

My daughter had a soccer game last night at 6:00pm and it was still 35 degrees at kickoff. The kids were drinking water like daddy drinks beer...

Must have been a proud moment for you Smile

Wait, she's still of Timbit age, isn't she? They don't let the little kids play when it's that hot, do they?

She's playing in the 4-6 mixed age group and it's a bit more competitive. They do keep score, stats, take corner kicks, throw-ins etc... the only time they call a game is if there's lightning. Her team won 8-2 last night. Hell yeah! They've only lost one game so far this season. Sweet.

We have a solar heated pool with a pool cover. Needless to say we've needed neither- Laughing3

I have a hot tub. Even with the heater essentially turned off, it likes to hover around 90!

I've been away from the house for a few days; when I came home last night, it was 31.1 degrees in the house ... a little bit on the warm side; it's now a cozy 25. This is the longest I've run the AC all summer (12 hours).

Yowza. Our outdoor thermometer (in the shade) got to 38.3 degrees yesterday. It was truly inferno-like out there.

Driving 4 hours from Brampton to Ottawa in an unconditioned vehicle sucks by the way.
