When my mom is here, she sleeps in the basement - so the a/c unit is greatly needed upstairs.

That's unbearable. You definitely need A/C.

Last night I ordered a portable a/c unit for the bedroom. Most were out of stock, but I managed to find one online that said they could deliver between July 11-13. But then after ordering, it said due to delivery demands, there's a possibility it would be late. I'm obviously expecting it maybe mid week next week, or even a bit later.
Where do you live? You don't have a local hardware store that has them in stock? Window units are not hard to install, just make sure your electrical circuit can handle it.

Good plan. Though that seems a bit warm for a basement in my experience.

Looking at my local hourly forecast our high will be 96 or 97 with humidity around 44%. But as the temp goes down in the evening the humidity climbs up. RIght now (3:30 am) it's 77 with 100% humidity.

why does the humidity rise in the evening?


I just took the temp in the basement right now - it's 26 (78.8). It's a split level house, so not truly a basement, basement.


Also, I live in the suburds of Montreal. I checked all the hardware stores here, everything sold out.


Actually, last night, I was in the process of buying a 12k BTU a/c, that said it had express delivery available. About 30 minutes later, that option became null.


So I went with the only one available - 8k BTU, that had delivery available. Everything was sold out, for delivery and pick up in store.



How are you guys managing ?

Down here, everyone has central AC.



Drying your sweat doesn't really help cool you that much, because it's the evaporation of sweat that pulls heat off your skin and cools the body. Fans can help with the evaporation, but the higher the humidity the worse it gets.



Timewave had a good suggestion, a cold pack of frozen peas to the back of the neck helps. So does being as naked as possible.



PH is right, where he lives, after the sun goes down, the moisture in the air increases. The sun actually helps burn the moisture out of the air.



It's 5:30 am here, and its 78 degrees with 88% humidity. I do have the windows open, I open them about 3 am. It's sticky and yucky but I am drinking ice water : ) I will have to close the windows by 9:00 am and turn on the AC.


May I suggest these for you and the kids?

^it's funny you mention those; I had to go to Canadian Tire last night for a new can opener, and kept my eye open for popsicle molds. Didn't see any, so I suppose I could just order them online.. Liv likes the smoothies I make, so I figure I could just put them in popsicle form. Also could start sneaking in some veggies. And yeah, obviously good for the heat.

88% humidity.. uggh. That's awful ??

Well, every house made in the last 50 years or so. My step-daughter is in an old house near downtown that has been converted into 4 apartments. No central air, hence the story about the window unit last weekend.

We dont bother opening our windows in the summer. Just running the AC 24/7

Well, you don't have a bird/squirrel feeder outside a window and a cat that insists he get to watch AND smell them every morning!

This had to be wrong. It's right now 27 C with 87% humidity, and it doesn't feel too bad outside, in comparison to the other day. I don't know what I was looking at.

Everyone knows that if you sit naked on a metal chair in a room at 82F / 28C you'll shiver.

Home Depot cancelled the shipment after the date that it was supposed to be here. That's what they do. I used to work for them.. so, I should have known better.

Have been waiting all day for rain. According to the detailed radar map, it rained here, yet nothing is wet! It dried before it hit the ground I guess : )




Don't hog it all PH. Let those hurricane bands come on through!

Yesterday was another heat wave, and I read on the weather network, that it was going to carry on for the whole week, up until Saturday, with chance of thunderstorm each day.

So, I went out and bought a dehumidifier yesterday. They had a whole shipment at Canadian Tire.

When going upstairs, at the house, the air felt and also smelled like a swamp. It actually smelled like river water inside the house. We are near a river.

After buying it, the instructions said that after moving it upright and into place, it needs to sit there for 24 hours before turning the unit on. Weird. So, it was no use as of yesterday.

Today is not as muggy, so we moved it to the basement and the air is better there now.

I figured I'd get this over a portable a/c because its movable. The garage and bathroom in the garage needs it. There's a slight mildewy smell.

Hopefully this will help the upstairs area when it gets that soupy swamp feel, though.

We are having a huge thunderstorm. Power's out. Over 1000 homes without.

Very big! (She says, staring at lightning after images.)

I live in the mouth of a canyon that funnels Pacific air into the valleys except when the winds reverse and it funnels hot air from the Central Valley onto the coast, and people living in San Francisco lose their minds over 100+ degree temps.

In my tiny little microclimate (basically a neighborhood) the air really improved today. There is smoke all around us, but the air above is pretty damn clear and best of all, doesn't smell like wildfire.

No idea what tomorrow will bring.

That dehumidifier we bought ended up being a dud. It started making cranking noises, so when we finally had the time we got another. It's not so humid here anymore, but it is still very useful. It makes the air so much more comfortable.

It's been about 19 to 20 degrees Celsius this past week, and it seems a bit chilly now. I'm wondering if another heat wave will hit, but I think this might be it.

Too bad, because we have this little 10 foot diameter above ground pool, that I painstakingly tended to for several days, to get the ph just right for the guests. The filter had been clogged and it went several days that way before I really realized. Got it just right, with the water crystal clear, but it's been too chilly. I checked the temp of it today, and it was something like 64 degrees.. nope. So, looks like it'll have to be drained. Too bad, I would have liked to make more use of it.

We're going 100+/38+ again starting tomorrow. the last round of fires aren't fully contained so fun times are ahead.

I bought a couple portable air cleaners because smoke was so heavy that it was creeping into the house despite brand new air filters, damp towels, etc. Hopefully we can keep the indoor air healthy now.

Houston TV stations are promising overnight lows in the 60s "for some in our viewing area". That means maybe College Station can turn off their AC for a few hours overnight.

Our weather forecasters are getting very excited. At first they weren't expecting it to even make it here.


Quote:
Looking ahead, our confidence is growing for the arrival of the first cool front of the season Wednesday. With the front thunderstorms will develop, it will become windy, and temperatures could drop by 20 degrees. By Thursday morning, lows could be in the upper-50s with a high temperature in the 70s!

Hurricane Teddy is coming for us, probably as a strong tropical storm, on Tuesday. It will still be a hurricane just before coming ashore, and currently looks to be a very heavy wind and rain event.

The last time we were told a hurricane would quit being a hurricane just as it came onshore we got Juan onshore as a strong cat 1.

Either way, mr.b. has upgraded our generator system by properly wiring it into the house, so if the power goes out (lol, it will) we can switch off the grid at the main and safely switch on generator power.

Heard the neighbours yesterday testing their generator. Before Juan I didn't know anyone who owned a generator. Now I hardly know anyone without one.

LOL, we're supposed to get tropical storm Beta here today/tomorrow. I guess we're supposed to worry about flooding (yet again).

There will be flooding in some parts of NS, directly on the shore and along rivers, but our house isn't in danger that way - we're on a bit of a rise above the lake, maybe about 4m above sea level.

Zel, you getting enough of this rain? Amazingly our street remained clear through the night. I guess I'm going to work today. Hopefully I don't get stuck there.

Ah, the road I normally take to work is flooded out (no surprise). The bayou overflowed overnight. I'll have to take a different route that will add 2 minutes to my drive.
