Wednesday’s high temp could hit 101

The last thing you want to hear is that it’s getting even hotter. And even hotter than the forecasters predicted. The new consensus for Wednesday’s high is a record-breaking 101 degrees. And for Thursday, 100 degrees. (To remind you of your misery, we added the current temperature to the top of the site.)

As you might imagine, Golden Gardens is a popular place to cool off. We stopped by the popular beach to snap some photos of people in the water…

And on the water. As always, please be careful.

The spray garden at Ballard Commons Park is another popular place. Many kids (and adults) were getting some relief from the heat running through the water.

Have some hot weather photos? Please send them to tips@myballard.com…

Er…chopper 74, frequently the people one MIGHT be interested in seeing in the buff are modest as Mennonites, and people you would pay good money to never see undressed will drop trou at…well, at the drop of a hat.

On the subject of heat; my car's AC died several years ago and cannot be fixed…I can remember one hot summer day that I actually drove it with OVEN MITTS ON until the open windows finally cooled it down. Don't laugh…I know you are laughing at me. Why do you think that in the Old Days before A/C, when all steering wheels were metal, people used to own an esoteric item known as “driving gloves”?

My A/C went out last month, and I haven't looked into getting it fixed…it hadn't occured to me that I might run into “cannot be fixed”. Yikes. Good thing I don't drive much…

I have a 1994 car. Apparently they cannot fix the A/C…rats! Well, at least the heat works.

actually, I heard on KUOW today that tomatoes weren't doing too well because of the excessive heat. something about the plants aborting the flowers above a certain temperature. you might want to check out the podcast (weekday-10am)

now you need to do it the old fashioned way–with ice cube trays!
how primitive of you!!

I jest of course. I never hooked up the ice maker on my fridge since I figured it was one more thing to break. thanks for proving me right!

Oh yes, we use trays for ice cubes we actually consume (in our drinks)

The ice maker in the old frig in this rental unit made stinky cubes that tasted bad. We only used the ice maker cubes for injuries and to keep cool in hot weather. WAAAAH, I miss all the stinky cubes now. Oh, well, at least a big bag of ice at the Shell station is only $2 !

Mine's 1995, so maybe it's one year more fixable? I haven't checked to see if the heat works. Right now, I don't even want to know!

Ice cream is a savior in any direction.

I recommend also wet washcloths in the freezer. They've kept me sane. Well, sane-ish.

I was listening to that broadcast too!

We've already got some fruit set on ours, so hopefully this will make for fine, ripe tomatoes for us.

If it wasn't so damn hot, I'd be out picking blackberries this week. They look great!

Oh, they're great, aren't they? I put a damp hand towel in the fridge, and it's perfect!

And to think that I refused to go to Burning Man because of the heat!

Great. So now Burning Man has come to me.

Well , I stepped out onto our cement patio this morning and burnt the bottom of my foot and now I am soaking them in ice water. Ahhhhhh!

Why yes, yes I do. Fortunately I am also second in command of the whole operation and can get away with futile gestures like this, which I believe set a good example for the rest of the group.

Hey Roy – was that you and your girl that I passed at Seafood fest? The man was wearing a black Utilikilt, as was I. We smiled as we passed each other and I said “Nice skirt.”

One of my favorite commercials of all time is this utilikilt ad. ;-)

Rock the kilt!

How about an article listing Pubs in the area that have Air Conditioning?

Thanks!
