Absolute stunner of a summer day. Got a little toasty for shoveling drain rock while wearing an annoying shoulder brace but sweat is NOT a poisonous substance.

Got up to a toasty 82 degrees today after a low of 54/

 

Found this posted on FB,  not sure if it is legit, seems plausible given how stretched the energy grid is in parts of the country.  Certainly when I was in Japan, they kept the temps in the office buildings around 78-80.  When I was in an office here in Bellingham it regularly hit 80, but that was more due to a dysfunctional HVAC  system.  Absolutely miserable.

For me personally, they can f*ck right on off with that bullsh*t!  I can't even sleep good when the room is 70 degrees, at 82, it would not even be worth bothering...

Wow! 
This time of the year we have ours set at…

72 during the day (only AC set at that so it’s been mostly topping out around 70 in the house except for today when the ac kicked on at 72. 

At night 65! It’s set to start cooling the house at 9:30 and will get to 65 by around 10pm then it releases at 5am so the house will slowly warm throughout the morning naturally until the ac kicks on again past 72.

82 at night is crazy! The reason we’re able to fall asleep at night is due to the falling temperatures. That’s how humans evolved. If the temperature is 78 all day and then you increase it to 82, with the rising temperature your body will think it’s morning and it’s time to get ready for the day. In turn you won’t be able to fall asleep. We personally keep our AC at 80 but if we have guest over then we bump it down to 75. In the evening we set it to 70. The temperature difference from the day to night helps facilitate sleep for us. 🛌 😴 💤

A decent day today. A little on the warm side but we should probably get used to days like this the next 2-3 months. 89/54 spread. So far have avoided 90 this year (peaked at 89 on 5/10 as well), which is kinda nice. We’ll see how tomorrow plays out.

Beautiful evening out currently with some scenic high clouds around, a mild NW breeze and a current temp of 74.

I'll be boating plenty tommorow as-well, but sadly no Jet-skiing because I haven't been able to get that old thing fixed, at this point I'm getting tempted to buy a new one. (Used of course)

I couldn't even do that.  My wife and I both work upstairs, and its an open floor plan so we just have the one A/C.  We close off the vents downstairs to pump all of the cold air upstairs and let it settle downstairs.   We tested this with our A/C installer here to make sure we were not putting too much strain on the system with all of those ducts mostly closed. 

 

We keep the A/C at 71 during the day, and drop it to 68 at night, but most evenings I will open up the house once it hits about 65.  Our house backs up against a dense wooded area, and you can stand in the back yard in the evenings and feel the cool air pouring out of the woods.  It helps cool the house down nicely.

It ends up getting up to 75 or so upstairs during the day, so we both have desk fans blowing on us.

I would probably go lower in the evenings, but I get into a tradeoff with the impacts of the dry air on my sinuses.

82 at sleep is fuuucking crazy. I literally couldn't fall asleep in that, I pity the folx at somewhere like phoenix prior to AC.

Since it always gets cold enough here at night, I do not have HVAC. Even during our warmest heatwave, we can just open the windows and put some fans in them and we'll easily get the house to the upper 60s by 11pm. For example, the hottest day last year for us which reached 102, was already down to 62 at 11pm. Sunriver blessings at work. And no need for heaters because we have 2 woodstoves and always have a large surplus of firewood, and a well insulated house.

Seems like it. What clinched it for me was this post explaining the rain shadow on a pnw based weather forum, ontop of the constant Fox 12 graphs.

Thanks for the story! I love the Port Angeles, Sequim, Victoria area. I’m not sure if you knew about its unique microclimate before you moved there but it gets less rain compared to everywhere else west of the Cascades due to the Olympic Rain Shadow. At the same as you mentioned it can get lots of snowfall if the setup is right. December 1996 is another example. If I was from BC I would probably live in Victoria.

I was able to do all the lawn edging with the weed wacker with no crutches this evening... pretty big achievement for me.   Lugging that heavy thing around in the 85 degree sun and sweating and loving it.  It's the simple things.   My wife is still mowing but guessing I might be able to do that next time around.   Just a bit slower than her.

Glad to hear you’re on the mend. 💪

That sounds crazy cold for the house during the summer. Do you sleep in shorts and a t-shirt and a sheet in those temperatures?

I've heard of people who set the heat to 72 in the winter and set the AC to 68 in the summer.

In a couple months, you'll hopefully be able to throw those crutches in the fireplace and let them burn to ashes. Just make sure to get away from the fire as crutches are saturated with a LOT of sweat after being stuck into people's armpits for hours at a time.

Phil is puking and vomiting looking at this, he only will ever use a multi thousand dollar weather station that requires you to go high on big steep roofs and climb big ladders, and will laugh at the idea of someone getting severely injured by a small ladder. Phil is amazing.

No, but I would laugh at a junkie masquerading as a retiree getting injured hiking up a mountain at 3AM in pink bunny slippers while trolling a weather forum.

Looks like a low of 64 so far for PDX. Their first absurdly warm low of the season. Fitting for the first morning after the solstice (following the shortest night of the year)

Low of 58 here. Looking forward to the cooldown starting tomorrow.

I am not sure of the reasons... but this has been the complete opposite of 1988 in the Upper Midwest.    They are dealing with flooding and not drought this year.

Meanwhile here it’s been worse than 1988. Trees are dropping leaves with every breeze. Still at 0.2” for the month.

2010 was dry here as well, but much wetter in the Midwest (somewhat similar to this year).
