It peaked about 95 F in the DC area today.  I played 1.5 hours of tennis, starting about 1130.  No shade on the court, so it was pretty toasty.

I ran today before it topped out at about 93 and it still wiped me out. Yesterday too.

I finished putting the rest of the window AC units in and when I started them up I promptly popped a breaker. They are not large units and I've always been able to run them together until now so either one of them is going bad or the breaker is. End result is that only my kids will have AC in their rooms tonight. Me, not so much.  :(

I'm looking into a window unit for my office over the garage.  The existing 'big' unit has the wrong thermal exchanger on it, and it's going to cost less to put in a window unit myself than to have a pro come in and fix the other one

I'm not sure we've cracked 95F yet, but the humidity has been murderous.  :buck2:

I desperately wish we lived in the Smokies. West TN is just the pits sometimes (usually).

It's 94 here now with 56% humidity. I came back in to the house around 930 this morning and haven't left it since then, but The Wife is making me leave later for dinner :/

Made it to about 86 here with 64% humidity. It's much worse south and west of Portland.
