It's Too Freakin' Hot to Sleep
Here in the Pacific Northwest in my city, it got up to 81 degrees Fahrenheit. At nearly midnight, it is still 66F. The average for the month of June is typically 70F.
I have the fans in the window trying to pull in cooler air, as the thermometers in the townhouse tell me it is 78F inside, but that strategy does not seem to be working well tonight. These are the times that I wish we had air conditioning in most of the homes here.
I have my alarm set for 5:00 a.m., as I have a class to teach this week at the base about a half hour from my home. I do not have to be on the podium until 7:30, but they have a parking problem due to some construction, so I want to try to get there before 7 o'clock.
Typically, writing about the weather and what time I have to get up in the morning is not my style. Tonight is not the typical night. I guess I just needed to complain.
