Today I Died Of Heat (close enough anyways).

I'm definitely suited for the generally mild weather of the Pacific Northwest.  We've had heat in the high 80's the past three days and it's due to stick around several days more.  **faint** 

Nobody has air conditioning here.  No one I know at least. 

We've been living in a cave since the heat started.  Meaning - opening all the windows as soon as I get up to catch the coolness of the morning, then by late morning I close all the windows and blinds and turn off every light.  Why?  Because none of us handles heat well.  And it IS humid here.  No where near the walking-through-water feeling one gets during the Summer in Houston, but still... yuck. 

Being out in the heat for too long gives me a pounding headache.  Even if I guzzle water the whole time. 

Now, my question is: how did I get like this?  My mother would be better suited for Arizona and REALLY doesn't like the rain, clouds, or winters here.  She LOVES the heat and the sun.  How did I end up being the complete opposite?  Seriously, too much heat and I get seasonal depression! 

Looks like Ash is a girl after my own heart. 

I let her play in a little bucket of water and next thing I know she's chillin' in it.

And then wonders why her dress is wet.

No sweat.  Haha!  There's The Tongue again.  It's her new thing. 

So, how do you feel about the heat?  Prefer it over cold?  Regardless of your temperature inclination, I hope everyone is having fun in the sun!!

Cold, Wet, Rainy, even Snowy for me thanks! I keep trying to convince the hubby to move to the NW. He isnt for it. Luckily we get the 4 seasons here in the Utah. But we have the AC. Which thankfully works and gets turned down a degree each week the farther prego I am. hahaha... Get some popsicles. xo

Oh, I'm like your mother! I love the heat and the sun! I live in Rio de Janeiro and the average temperature here is between 75º and 82º... I like it better around 82º. If it's 77 I still consider it to be fine. But this week it's raining and TOO COLD: 66º!!! (haahaahah! This is the winter for us.)
The wind is blowing cold, I can't take the baby to the park because of the rain and she even got a runny nose for the bad weather.

Wanna chance places??? =)

hugs from Brazil!

I'm with you! I can't stand the heat... It never bothered me when I lived in Florida, but ever since I moved to Texas I can barely stand to be outside during the summer. I don't get headaches but I do start to get nauseous... Not to mention I get sunburned no matter how much sunscreen I put on! I think I'm living in the wrong place!

I don't like it when it gets hot and muggy. I'm inside ALOT at the end of July and pretty much all of August LOL Poor boys. I really like Spring and Fall weather the best.

I'd like winter if it wasn't for the crappy roads.

I am a full on winter baby, I wonder if it has to do with the time of year you were born? I was born in December and HATE when it gets really hot.
