Default Its 88 deg in my living room.

It's 88 deg in my living room.

on: Today at 09:51:26 PM


Temp got up to 98 outside today, 88 inside. Been running a small AC a 14,000 btu, 3 floor fans and 2 ceiling fans all day. Good thing I got filled up on the oxygen today, really hard to breathe. Never been this bad in this ol house before. Several reports of pavement buckling from the heat. That ol AC does all it can, just isn't enough. Keep cool guys. CHARLIE. Shocked

Man!!! That is tough in your world. We hit 102 with 73 dew point but my A/C kept up. If you were closer I would have you over to cool down. Hang in there.

buy a couple bags of ice, throw them in a turkey roasting pan & put it on the floor in front of your box fan. when the air broke down at work that was their short term solution. I was surprised at how well it worked.

Linda has COPD the heat down here gives her a hard time also.
It's been 100 last two days, 98 today.
We keep it about 70-71 in the house so she can breath in this humidity down here.

Praying the what'll break for ya Charlie

Sorry to hear that Charlie! Praise God about the O2. Do you have access to a de-humidifier? We've been using them for a few years now, and they've helped alot.

Hang in there Charlie. There is a cold front coming through on Monday and the temps are suppose to be back down in the 70's here in Ohio. Maybe a little higher down by you. Like Guzz said, if you were close enough you could come here and hang out.

One of those little 110 window units at Walmart are about $100.00.
If you put one of those in and shut off the rest of the house, it might give you some relief.
I don't really know your situation, but I feel for you.

JON. I have done that years ago when Patty got sick from the heat. She thought I was nuts til I turned the fan on for her. We closed off a bdr and the back of the house, that should help.
It's been this hot before, must be the high humidity. Tomorrow will be better. The AC keeps freezing up even set on 72. I reckon it's getting some age on it. This heat and emphysema don't get along very well. Been getting twinges from my heart since this all came in. We can go to our Church if we need to. Thanks for the kind words and prayers. CHARLIE.

yup it gets in 90s a few times a year here. Yesterday was one of them. Nice thing here though is unlike when I lived in the south it last for a day or two not a month or two. So muggy yesterday that I sprayed duracoat on an ar15 stock and 10 hours later it was still tacky. Usually there dry to touch in less then 2 hours.
