Well, looks like Boston broke another record today. The official temperature reached 99 degrees Fahrenheit, although Basil (our Mini) insists that it was higher than that.
So today is day six of our ridiculous heat wave here in Boston, and tomorrow is supposed to be day seven. Fortunately this sort of heat is quite abnormal for Boston, and it should return to usual 80 something degree temperatures by Sunday. We have had both of our AC units running, plus all of our fans, and it is just barely enough to make it tolerable.
I am definitely ready for fall to get here. I was more enthusiastic about summer when it meant I got to do lots of fun things, but these days fun tends to be a bit limited and I prefer comfortable temperatures. Hell, I even prefer cold winter temperatures to this.
The past few weeks have held a lot of change for our humble home. Although it has not been the hottest summer on record for Boston (as far as I know) it has been rather warm. Kelly and I held out for a good month and a half before finally caving in and putting in our two small window AC units and turning them on. But that is not the only thing different.
