    Highs in the 90's and humid. I set my alarm and went out before 6 AM to get some weeding done.

    We've been upper 90's with heat index 105-110. It's miserable to me. I can barely function. The other day I wrote "Heat Depression -it's a thing" on my facebook status. Then I thought, I better look that up. And it really is a thing. It's still SAD (seasonal affective disorder, but less people get it than the winter version).

    It's 56 with a high predicted in the mid 60's today. 20 miles inland though is a completely different story.

    Expected high of 103 degrees today in Phoenix; will be 107 degrees on Wednesday 4th. That's why there's little/no outdoor picnics/bbqs here which are always depicted in ads - we do that in winter!

    Weather here is much like Float On said, upper 90's and heat index over 100. That is interesting about the SAD in Summer version because I have been noticing, (and commenting to a friend), about how much I hate Winter, can't wait for it to be over, look forward to warm weather but yet now that this weather is here I feel much the same! I feel I need a break from the heat, can't take it much longer, etc. - the way I feel when it is cold! I wonder if as we age do we have less tolerance for temperature extremes?

    Or the extremes are more extreme and more frequent due to climate change.

    At 69, I have much less tolerance for heat and cold. I did weed for 30 minutes yesterday to complete one flower bed. When weeding in the shade sometimes only part of a flower bed gets weeded. My husband went out at 6:30 to pick blueberries. I LOVE air conditioning! 95 today predicted, but it did go down to 62 last night.

    I think it's as we age we can't take the swings anymore. I am interested to hear about the heat version of SAD because boy, I seem to have it. And I have the winter version. Just like Sad, I can't take this much longer--it was 97 yesterday and the heat is like a hot blanket over everything, and I can't breathe. We are supposed to go out and watch the Blue Angels, which I normally love, but I am worried about walking from the car to the park in this heat.
