The day the AC came on

Yes, we finally turned on the AC today.  I think this might be the earliest in June we've turned it on in years.  (Though we never made it into June without AC when we lived in Baton Rouge.)  It's been stifling hot here lately and everyone else turned on their AC days (if not weeks) ago.  Unfortunately the weather forecast doesn't offer any relief in sight.  

Not good news for M, who is heading off for a week at Boy Scout camp next week.  If it will finally rain, he may get some relief from the heat, but otherwise he'll be hot.  Luckily most of their activities are in the woods or on the water.  

A finished up his week of Cub Scout camp today.  Hot, hot, hot.  And the pool never did become usable.  Instead they had water balloons and an enormous slip-n-slide type thing.  A said he was hot, but he did fine - probably helped by the fact that we don't over-air condition at home.  Some kids were evidently really struggling with the heat.  Their bodies don't get acclimated to the heat, so when they are out in it, they can't cope.

Bummer! Hope it cools off a bit for camp next week!

SHHHH!! Don't tell anybody, but our heat is still on. I see the sun out this morning, so things are looking up for a day -- upper 60s even! Tomorrow's supposed to be back to rainy and upper 50s again. Later this week, the 7-day forecast had 3 days in the 70s! Woohoooo!! We might get summer after all! But that's late in the 7-day forecast, so all bets are off beyond about day 2. The 7-day becomes more reliable in July, when it's wall-to-wall sunshine and we're just talking about temp variations based on which way the wind is blowing.
