Here in the Central Plains, we are sweltering in a string of consecutive ~100 Deg days. How do you spend indoors time when this hits?

My (never ending) home theater project (profile photo) with a long list of needed improvements. Killed a few hours working on it today.


I truly feel for you and all that have to bear this. Today was the hottest day of the year and it only got into the mid 70's. There was a memorial but it was too hot to sit outside. Call us weather wimps.

I get my outdoor stuff done early early early. Then I either go and play racquetball for a while or catch up on my reading.

I cultivated a lot of indoor hobbies when I lived in CO where it got -35 in winter and was often below freezing for months at a time. They are all useful in AZ when it's 100F. I quilt, play mandolin, read a lot, get inventive about cooking, knit, crochet. Clean closets, organize files. Tried stained glass, published a website, did literature searches and wrote some review papers. In hot weather, use the crockpot or grill outdoors. Turning on the oven is not advisable. All these hobbies will be useful as you get older and lose physical abilities.


I go to the bridge club or the Y whenever possible.

Cursing the humidity and dreaming of when I'll be able to escape it. The heat I can take, the humidity is like breathing underwater.

Right now at 1640 central it's 95 with a heat index of 101, it's cooling off some!

Vidya games, books, Netflix, and beer.


Gets way too hot in the house for me. No A/C. Sit in the shade outdoors and hope for a breeze!
Worst heat - I have a kid pool I'll blow up!

Only when raining I go out with no umbrella

It's been high 80's and mid 90s in northern KY and thats hot here. I'm still able to work some in the garden, taking a lot of breaks. A lot of time here on the site checking on friends and staying in the A/C.

I go outside only as needed, and ran errands early today to beat the heat. I have projects if I need distraction, I quilt, sew, I have a few books I need to finish, and there is laundry and cleaning to be done. Oy vey. I always have things to do indoors and out, the outside things will just wait til fall, or next spring.


Playing ukulele and singing at my dogs!


Going to be 90 ish next 4 days. Dvd time i think errands early morning.


does it cool off at night at all?

btroje Level 9 June 17, 2018

Depends on the time of year. Right now into the 70s, in August maybe into the 80s.


100 F is not so bad, just wait till it gets to 115. Anyway, drink plenty of water and just take it easy. It will pass and winter will be upon you very soon.

Back in, I think, 2011 or so...we had 100days in a row over100 degrees. It's been over100 degrees a few times so far this year but mostly in the mid to upper 90s. I garden between 5 am and 7 am...and 8 pm and 10 pm. and hike/walk during those same hours. The rest of the day is spent indoors in the AC working smile001.gif ...and sometimes I go to a local indoor pool where they also open the big doors and let the sun in on one side of it.
