Hot Fun in the Summertime!

In case you haven't heard, Denver has set a record for the number of consecutive days with temperatures above 90 degrees. We're now working on day 20 of 90+ degree days. The record, set in 1847 and 1901, was an 18-day stretch. I heard that yesterday it was 104 degrees. This crazy photo is of a pool in Japan. If I went to that pool, I'd take one look and say, "Uh, no thanks!" I think I would rather sweat.

Anyway to get back to Denver's heat--it's not big deal. Really. I sit on my patio (in the shade) daily during the summer and work outside. I keep saying it's not that bad, and now I have proof. 

Have you heard the expression, "it's a dry heat?" Well, it is. 

The National Weather Service released data the other day shortly after noon. The temperature was 94 degree, but it actually felt like 88 degrees. 

That's not so bad, is it? Either that or I'm just your run of the mill optimist, who happens to love being outside in the nice weather. 

BTW, I'm sitting outside right now, and the temperature is a comfortable 94 degrees. Lovely!

Lovely. I agree. I was just sitting outside and with the cool breeze, it was quite enjoyable.

"nice weather" is a very subjective term.

Uh...yep. You are an optimist, all right. :0)

You couldn't pay me enough to get into that pool. One could drown and no one would know it.

Nice snarky post.

Right. So hot.
Try Texas heat. Over 100 most days. Heat index? I don't want to know.

I am sorry to hear that it is so hot in Denver... but really.. you could be like Heather and be in Texas, or here in SC where we had 101 degree temps with heat index of 105, it will be the same for the next 2 days,then it will 'cool' down a bit... to 95.LOL
