What Kind of Hot Is It?

Man it's hot. It's like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot.

Feels like both Africa Hot and Mississippi Hot
Have Arrived in NJ

Here's a few scenes of folks trying to cool off ...


 
My granddaughter Hope at the park and in the pool with Daddy

We're roasting in Ohio, too! I hope they don't stick a fork in me to see if I'm done.

We had it for about a week now. I give it to you gladly.. Not really.

Oh Dianne, this is too ironic because I just finished writing a post about the heat which I may publish on Monday!

"Man it's hot. It's like Africa hot. Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot."

HAHAHHHAHAHAAHHA! That's hilarious!

Honestly though, this is WORST heat isn't it? Yesterday I thought I was going to spontaniously combust on the street.

Love these photos, especially the one of Hope and Daddy in the pool!

"When I opened the door of my air conditioned car the windshield immediately fogged up."

Yup, that's what happened to my sunglasses when I walked out of Barnes & Noble.

I've got some running around to do today and I'm dreading it.

Try and stay cool, dear lady. This heat is so bad it's unhealthy.

X ya!

I love that. "Tarzan couldn't take this kind of hot."
Well, I'm grateful we've had some nice, warm weather for a couple of days, because the hot heat comes back tomorrow.
I love the pictures of Hope. She is so adorable, and she's so happy in the pool with her daddy.

Did you know that your Twitter account has been hacked?

She's so gorgeous! And I love her pink water wings!

I start panting just reading all the posts from the east coast!! And we're having the coolest summer in over 20 years???? Go figure. It's nearly 1pm and still in the low 60s, but blue, cloudless skies! Amazing differences! Wish I could send you some cool air! Hope looks adorable as always and I, too, love her water wings! Take care, stay cool!

It is HOT. Kind of hoping the weather breaks before we do.
But Hope seems to be enjoying herself. Nothing like an ice cream cone and a swim!
Keep your cool ;)

116 heat index hot.

The city must be hot. Hope you have a cool breeze.

Hilary said...

It sure is hot. And that child sure is adorable. What a delicious smile.

CrystalChick said...

I noticed that Biloxi Blues was on recently and I had to sit and watch a few scenes.
Yup, it's HOT in NJ! Atleast Hope is looking happy in the pool.

Daryl said...

Still not as hot here as it was in Birmingham, AL

Patti said...

It has been oppressive, but today (Sunday) feels a bit better.

I knew when you saw my toddler photo today you'd think of Hope!!

They would look cute together. ;-)

Love the shot of your son and Hope cooling off in the pool.

Try to stay cool, Dianne. Take care!

Leora said...

The pool is the best. I think I'll just stay indoors until we go to the pool - I did some gardening this morning, and I thought I was going to wilt.

IWS Radio said...

It is absolutely ridiculous how hot and humid it is here. Actually, this is the way it is every summer. But, it's still ridiculous.

Also, as mom mentioned, your Twitter appears to have been hacked. If you remember your password, you'll need to change it. ;-)

Sending cool thoughts as we "heat up" here to the upper 70's.

Spiderdama said...

Wish we had some more hot weather here too.. great series of pictures.

Thank you for your concern about my country.

Wish you a happy week!

Mama Pajama said...

that's pretty hot, but your little one looks like she knows how to keep cool!

Mimi said...

Your granddaughter knows how to get cool!
It's hot here too, though probably just warm compared to your temps.

HermanTurnip said...

Ugh! Here's some well wishes from Southern California where it's been a tolerable 80 inland. Not too hot to dissuade me from going on a run then jumping into the pool! :-)

Akelamalu said...

Hope looks COOL! :)

Reb said...

It's going to feel like 86F here today. Hot & humid for here, but I'll bet you would think that quite cool after what you've had. Hope looks happy in the pool.

Knight said...

What heat?
I don't have AC in my apartment so on those really rough days I made dates with one of my boyfriends and stayed at his place. I'm sneaky like that.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

We're in the only place (I think) in the US where it's cool (in the Pacific Northwest now). Wish you were here ;>).

Our granddaughter and her two boys are visiting her folks (and us once in a while...they miss husband/daddy, but I think they hate to go back to the SCarolina heat. Yikes! Take care.

fermicat said...

Situation normal in Hotlanta, so I definitely feel your pain!

Scott Oglesby said...

It’s ridiculously hot here in Florida as well, as I’m sure you can imagine. The only difference is that maybe we’re a little more used to it. Our AC isn’t working that great at the moment though…. I hope yours is!

Miss ya and Love ya!

Robin said...

Nothing better than the pool to beat the heat.

Hope looks adorable, no wilting in the heat for that little cutie :).
