Enough is Enough

We bought two more fans. Because seriously: it's hot.

The weather for the last 2 weeks has been a continuous tease. They forecast hot for today, sure. But in 3 or 4 days it'll break. Well, not 3 or 4 days from now...but 3 or 4 days from now. Or not. But next week. Or not.

It's been supremely frustrating. And since the humidity shot up to a whopping 29% 3 days ago (horrors!), it's been really unpleasant. We lay around panting like the dogs, remembering the delicious days of May when it was 65, sunny, and so nippy at night that we had our duvet on the bed. In May! I loved May.

August will be better. The weather patterns for this area are unlike anywhere else we've lived. July is the hottest month, with August the beginning of a slide into autumn. So while the average high in July is 92, the average high in August is only 90. And night temps dip, too.

Welcome, August. We're so happy to see you.

That was 29 per cent? You really are kidding...

Um, do you wanna come to visit here now? We had break in our weather. Instead of it being 110 freaking degrees, we are a meer 75.

You moved to the mountains, so deal with the temps. Suck it whigs.

Yeah, July and early August are the pits in SLC. (Nothing like the endless summer months of hell in DC, KY, or SC, but there everybody has AC.) It will start to cool off in the evenings sometime in August. Until then, just stand in front of the fridge in your skivvies. It may not be a good idea, but at least it's an idea. (A hotel room or condo in Park City might be slightly more enjoyable, however.)
