I think I'm melting

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
The high today is supposed to be 86. Not too bad until you add the 75% humidity on top of that. I have no idea how hot it is outside, but our office is about 80 degrees right now. I've worked here 8 years. I should be used to this, but every summer it's like this. I work for a foundry and when it gets this hot out the air can't keep up and it just keeps getting warmer & warmer through out the day. I'm thankful to say that it's supposed to cool down tonight & stay cool for several days.

Drink lots of water to stay hydrated. I don't think I could handle working in a foundry!

I feel for you.
It's 92 here right now and very humid.
I just went outside to get the mail and when I opened the door the humidity almost knocked me out.
It's been raining off and on all afternoon, but I think that's only making it worse.
Thank God for central air, but sometimes even that isn't enough!

I haven't been down on the floor this afternoon, but I feel so bad for those guys because there are certain departments that they are not allowed to open the windows for enviornmental reasons. So not only is it hot & humid, but the air is just dead. They have fans, but that only helps so much. The company also provides free Gatoraide on days like today. It's a dangerous place to work in the summer, and I don't think there's enough money in the world for me to work down there. I give thos guys a lot of credit.

I agree.
Those houses are so cute.

This is off topic but, one of my favorite British TV shows is "Last Of The Summer Wine."
It's set in Yorkshire and I know that not everything is filmed in the same town, but everytime they show the houses and those beautiful hills I just want to pack up and move there.
It looks like something out of a fairy tale to me.

If I could reverse the jet stream I would be more then willing to send you some the scorching temperatures from here in Ontario.
It has been ridiculously hot here for the last 3 days, however is cooling down nicely this evening.
I can feel my eyes drooping and my bed calling to me, sleep has been very elusive during the heat wave.
Even the kitties are having an enjoyable evening lounging in the window letting the breeze ruffle their fur.

They also show a lot of little streams with old stone bridges over them.
