North Carolina Heat Wave

The local weather forecasters  have been saying all week “prepare for the up coming heat wave.”  They were right! It’s here…this morning it’s  84* with 44% humisiry at 9:30 am! The forecasters are expecting temps of 104-106 for the entire weekend! We couldn’t even sit on the porch and have our mid morning coffee 😦  Today’s gonna be a lemonade day.

To prepare for the expected high temperatures, we had the air conditioning unit serviced last week. Upon the recommendation of our service technicians we set it to 75* last night to get the house cool.  Evidently it’s easier on the unit to keep a pre-cooled house cool than to try to cool it after the house gets hot.

Going to give Buddy a bath/rinse to help him stay cool. Poor thing can’t take off his coat. I also cooked 3 days worth of meals a head of time, and we have some BBQ options. All the laundry is done and ran the dish washer yesterday.  We’re very thankful we have a propane generator already hooked up as back up in case of a brown out. Now we just have to find cool things to do…
