I'm not dead, just molten

You'd be amazed how hard it is to type out blog posts when you've melted into a little puddle!

Yesterday in Seattle it hit the high 90s, today it's shooting for 94 and tomorrow may reach 100. Oh and as of 11 a.m. humidity is at 56 percent. Suppose this wouldn't be so bad, but because these temps are so rare, 99% of apartments don't have air conditioning.

I'm seriously considering escaping to a Starbucks later, as temperatures rise, to do my contract work someplace with air conditioning. I am becoming an increasingly devoted fan of the store's Wifi offer: get a Starbucks card (minimum $5) and buy one thing every 30 days and you get a couple of hours' free wireless access each and every day. A $1.50 cookie once a month for Internet access as needed is a pretty frugal option! Especially if you consider it free air conditioning on days like this.

Things have been hectic here for the last couple of weeks. Tim and I are weighing our options on when to move to Phoenix. If we find a good enough deal in the next week or so, we're seriously considering shooting for early September. So I've been calling (a lot of) apartments down there and (a lot of) moving companies up here.

At some point, I will do a rant about the insane prices of moving companies. But it's too hot to rant right now. Plus I have to go and deal with contract work, assuming that a puddle of goo (formerly known as Abby) can still Twitter.

I know what you are talking about. Down here in Oregon In my town it hit 107. And like Seattle most places do not have air conditioning.

And to top it all of the power went out last night for 2 hours. So even a fan was no help.

I am hoping the weather get a little cooler.
