100 x 2

It’s supposed to be 100 here, for the next 2 days.  Then Wednesday will be in the 90’s, then ‘back down to’ high 80’s by Thursday. 

Actually, I’d prefer this to cold, wet, gloomy.  (part of the reason I look forward to moving to AZ in about 2 years.)

Still, weird for this time of the year, even for here in southern California…  we don’t usually need our heater before 11/1, but looks like it will be much later this year.

Guess a few more days of A/C use.  (we try never to use it unless it’s over 90.)

Here’s the forecast for the next 10 days:

C’est la vie…

    We could never be roomies. Don't care for the desert. I love A/C when it hits 80. I need to sleep in COLD. I love rainy gloomy days as long as it isn't months on end like when I lived in Seattle. Nothing better than changes in weather and seasons!! Do not like anything over 83 unless i am in a pool. 🙂

    I love that meme! What if we DID build a better world, indeed. My county is having a contaminated water crisis just developing and it kills me that the president is proud that his administration is wiping out environmental protections laws that will cause even more of these kinds of crisis' in the future. Toxic chemicals dumping can take decades to show up in our water and is deadly when it does.

    My son (presently living in Costa Mesa) doesn't like that heat at all. He will suffer until the temps go down. I don't mind anything up to 90, as long as the humidity is low …

    Humidity is very low, and your son is EXTREMELY close in geography, to me. I don't want to give out that much info on myself, but let's just say EXTREMELY close to me! 😮

    Sorry your son will struggle; but should be only a few more days…

    I have a love-hate relationship with this weather thing. I love that it has been in the mid-70s here in Michigan at the end of October and winters (at least the past two) lighter than usual. Except I know what that means… and it isn't good.

    Boy do I hear you. It will be 98 here today in Tucson AZ. We have remodeled an older townhouse this fall and I am so thankful for the air conditioner.

    The beat goes on here in retirement land. Thank you for reading Retire in Style Blog. I appreciated your comment.

    Stay tuned. I am 76 and my husband is almost 80. I think you are going to love retirement as much as we have.

    I liked you list of dreams for retirement. There is a list somewhere that included “dumpster diving” as an option. I have never tried it personally but who knows…I may get bored one day and do something really crazy. 🙂

    Have a wonderful day.

    Thanks for coming by, Barbara! Looking forward to getting to know you better!

    My retirement won't be quite normal; hubby is 16 years younger, and works from home 4 days a week.

    Not sure if I'll ever get bored (desperate?) enough to dumpster dive, but one never knows. LOL

    Well, actually not. As the old Phoenix saying goes, 'but it's a DRY heat.” Notice the humidity is only 15-17% for these 2 days. This is dry dry dry. Not humid at all. Like opening the oven door, dry. Not sauna type. 🙂

    But it's a dry heat. Oh, wait, that's over here in Arizona. I predict you're going to spend a lot of time in the pool when you retire in Scottsdale, SW.

    We have never got through October without putting the furnace on. I just checked the long range forecast, and I think we'll make it this year. Not sure this says anything positive about the planet though.

    We’re definitely getting those three digit figures here in So Cal — reminds me of when we lived in Phoenix/Scottsdale. We only had a few days like that in summer, but a lot more now and higher (from teens to twenties) there in recent years from reports I’ve read. More humidity there, too, beginning with all the golf courses they were building in early seventies. Expect the areas continued growth contributes. The clear blue skies we so admired when we had vacationed there previos years from Midwest had devolved the first Christmas after we moved there to newspapers first recognition of smog in the area. Don’t know if they’ve been reducing smog since early seventies. How can this nation’s leaders not want to do all we can do to see we have clear clean air in our country?

    Because if it doesn't line their coffers, it doesn't happen. Smog was because of lead in the gasoline. Remove it, and the worst of the smog disappeared. How long before Trump brings lead back to gasoline for his cronies?

    Same here……June gloom can drive me to seek higher, clearer ground more times than I care to admit.

    Suffering with you here in Ventura. Opened the door to leave for work this morning at 5:45 and the air hit like an oven.
