global warming much? 😩🥵🌞🔥

(And where I live houses don’t commonly have a/c. Given the amount of energy an a/c uses, I think they should only be used in e.g. medical institutions and preferably in combination with solar panels)

@whakkee 35 without AC is going to make for long days.😔

@fahrni nights are awful too when it doesn’t cool off enough we did this now, doesn’t look fancy, but hey 🤷‍♀️


@whakkee Hey, whatever it takes to stay cool. It might be worth staying outside during the day. Drink lots of water. We’re accustomed to hot days where I live. We get months and months over 35. All next week we’re expected to be over 38 all week.

@fahrni during the day, outside is warmer than inside. I might put up my tent in the back yard, because in there it cools off faster, so maybe better for sleeping. Over 30 is very uncommon here.

@fahrni also... 106F?! That’s... that’s... over 41C?!?! 😱 🔥🥵

@whakkee Yes, it gets hot here. In August we’ll hit 110-115 a few times.

@whakkee I live in the San Joaquin Valley of California. It's where a lot of the worlds food is grown. Inland between LA and San Francisco.
