COOLING OFF

It has been so hot that we have not been going in the computer. It is the hottest room in the house. There are two large windows and they face east and south. It feels like the next room over is 5 degrees cooler. The Scotties have been hanging out on the tile floor in the family room and the kitchen. They have not been happy to go out for walks. Patiently waiting for cooler weather in hot and humid Florida.011015

    Mama keeps telling me that we have a lovely cool tile kitchen floor, complete with suitably placed vent. For whatever reason, I continue to hang with her upstairs….I might try it when she is running errands one day……

      It is a good thing that we have a one story house. Sidney is terrified of stairs. I don’t know if Shelby or Sophie have every encountered them. I sit on the tile floor once in a while. It is really cool.

      I walked to the Village hall last night for a Citizen’s forum. The temperature on the electronic board said that the temperature was 109 at 6:30 PM. Our humidity is always high. With low humidity you cook your body from the inside. With high humidity your body is cooked from the outside. Either way, it is uncomfortable.

      I remember being in Las Vegas when the temperature was 115 and the humidity was very low. I was unable to quench my thirst and kept drinking water. Last night the temperature outside Village Hall was 109. Hot is hot.

    Our Rocky LOVED the tile floors! In our old house, we had wood floors and floor vents. We would often find Rocky sleeping on the vents. (He got his collar stuck in the vent a couple of times. Terrifying for him; hilarious for me.)
