It's so hot, my front yard is melting
Also, there's some sort of vortex consuming the shade.




Actually, no, that's a panoramic image I took today as I was sweltering in my home office, getting a little work done. So I took a break and took some crazy pictures in the front yard, where it was even more sweltery.

You can see more here, including better pictures of the shade-eating vortex monster:

I bought another "swamp cooler" type air-conditoner yesterday(We purchased one last month for our bedroom)for the living room. After running it for nearly 3 hours the living room temp was still 85 degrees at 10:15 last night. By 4am this morning it was a comfy 70 though.

Before we put the second one in, the walk from the living room to the bedroom could be compared to travelling from a hot clothes-dryer into a walk-in beer cooler.

Yesterday it was six degrees cooler in Panama City Beach, FL than it was in Poulsbo, WA. I think Al Gore is onto something here.

I just got a portable air conditioner thing (one of those devices roughly the size of R2-D2, but less cute), and ran it almost non stop from Monday night to earlier this afternoon. The office has been around 77 degrees during that time, and the rest of the house somewhere upwards of 80.

I've been toying with the idea of getting AC for the full house, but it seems hard to justify the expense when we don't weather that uncomfortable that much of the year.

However, I'm only getting older and less comfortable with the heat. And Al Gore's busy warming up the planet (job security!), so maybe it'll make sense to get a full-on system in a few years.
