    Noooo we just got summer. Yes it is HOT here too but it is short enough as it is. Used the furnace till June! Send it up here. lol
  • It is HOT here in the Boston area (heat index of 109* today). We don't get that kind of heat very often, but when we do - I hate it!

    I'm trying to remember how badly I wanted summer to be here when I was out there clearing the mountains of snow from the driveway this past winter!!!

    i cant take it at all, we need to send it back down south. you need a 4x4, i shoveled the walk once last winter and im just north of you :laugh:
  • PhilsGrillPhilsGrill Posts: 2,256
    Move!!!! I hate it when I have to put a sweater on in January to go cook outside!
  • Oh - believe me, every winter I wonder why I live here! Our only son is headed to college come September. I have a feeling the moving topic will come up again during the next few years!
  • fishlessmanfishlessman Posts: 22,718
    :laugh: not moving to canada, no way, no how, maines far enough north. you wear the sweater when your ice fishing in january, not when your cooking :laugh: windows are open, fans are running, its murder in the welding bay right now
  • PhilsGrillPhilsGrill Posts: 2,256
    Well... just don't laugh at us Atlantans come winter when you see us on CNN with the Blizzard of 1" coming!
  • OMG.......welding in this heat? I don't envy you! I'm sending cool thoughts...........

    Morning Fishless,
    You and I are like the north and south pole. So you handle the ice and I'll handle the heat waves. :silly:

    I love getting up at 4 and it's 86 outside and rising.

  • PhilsGrillPhilsGrill Posts: 2,256
    Yeah... but that's a dry heat!
  • Woody69Woody69 Posts: 360
    I'll take the heat over the cold any day. :)
  • BordelloBordello Posts: 5,926
    You have a valid point there although for some reason we have been muggy earlier then usual but it comes and goes.

    Have a great weekend,
  • PhilsGrillPhilsGrill Posts: 2,256
    Muggy? What do you call 'muggy' :blink: Right now in Marietta, it's 82 degrees and 89% humidity!

    Have a good 'dry' one!

    right now it feels like 120 in the building, walk outside into the 96 degree sun and you get chilled :blink: :laugh: 80 is too hot for me :laugh:
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    Bob, you still going without the ac on???

  • Weekend WarriorWeekend Warrior Posts: 1,702
    I am soooooo with you on this one fish. I haven't cooked on the eggs for 3 days because of the heat, but I cook everyday in sub-zero and blizzard conditions in January and February. :laugh: Actually fried pork chops in a skillet on the stovetop last night. :blush:
  • BordelloBordello Posts: 5,926

    I feel for ya so I guess if we have 49% humidity (maybe) it's still a dry heat. :laugh: Thanks, I will remember that as August is our when the humidity goes up some.

    Hi GG,
    Yep, but I did plug in the fridge now that I have gone a month only using the T.V.,computer and radio. Use a whopping 64 kwh of energy so my electric bill for the month is $23.42

    Now this month I will be able to see how much that 15+ years old fridge is costing to run.

    My place is still over 90 inside all the time and while a bit on the hot side I don't have much trouble with it.

    Currently 86.4* in the shade on my porch (10:45 am). Humidity is 70%.

    We had 11 days of over 100* heat index in June - much earlier than usual. July and August are our hottest months - uuuggghhh!

    Both Eggs - in the shade - register close to 100 on the dome temps by late afternoon.

    But, our winters are SWEET ! When Adam and Scott came to the Loney Fest, they were almost wearing light jackets while we were all freezing :laugh: :laugh:

    I could go for some snow for a few weeks. Just not another winter like we had last year in Minnesota.

    I need a little more golf, then I'm ready to break out the long boards...
  • RipnemRipnem Posts: 5,511

    Assuming you didn't make pucks out of them, bet they weren't half bad. :P

    Still get an 'F' though :whistle:

    Cooked one at a time because of our schedules last night. Pulled each one at 138 per the T-Pen. The temp still crept up over 140 during the couple minute rest though. They passed the family's taste test. That's all that's important. ;)

    I'm one of those people that sweat profusely just standing idle in this stuff. Miserable.
  • Grandpas GrubGrandpas Grub Posts: 14,226
    I would think that fridge is taking a lot more electricity than a newer model. My old freezer kills me when I run it during the summer months.

    I would think you should be close to $10 with that little usage.

    With our cool weather electricity and natural gas combined has been under $55 for a couple of months now. This month will jump into the $60 - $80 for electricity, gas should be under $30. Winter time I get up into the +/- $200 range for both.

    Hope you are doing well.

    I'm with you, right now its only 81 but man its humid. We only get a couple weeks of this a year, its a good thing,no AC. The tomatoes are loving it though,they are finally taking off.

    Just remember, unlike snow, you don't have to shovel heat!

    And I don't want to hear the whining when we're 2 months into winter!
