Be Careful What You Wish For...

...cuz you just might get it.

...you just might get it. *breaking it down to "When I Grow Up" by the Pussycat Dolls.

But seriously.

100 degrees in April?!

We don't live by the equator last time I checked.

I recall whining about the weather, the cold, the blustery wind, the rain that "WE desperately need" and now BAM.

3 days of scorching heat.

We actually went swimming on Sunday. In a POOL that isn't heated!

The kids would swim in the gutters in December if we let them.

Our little window unit air conditioner hasn't seen this much action since August, '08, poor little thing, chugging along.

Spitting out 64 degree air to the teensy 4 square foot area in front of it.

This is where being a vampire isn't such a bad idea.

Anyhoo.

The weather is supposed to be back to "normal" by Friday.

Normal means to us, 3 days of scorching heat/a mid-sized earthquake/3 days of raining buckets.

That's how we roll in Cali yo.

Oh and that earthquake thing...totally appropriate in the weather category.

See, when the weather gets kinda muggy between heat and rain...people in CA say that's "earthquake weather."

Earthquakes are all, "we don't discriminate weather-wise, but what ever those westerners think...we just keep them on their toes."

Just making sure I pack my sunscreen. When that earthquake hits and we become Monterey Island I want to make sure I'm prepared!

  7. AmyG said...

    Wow & here I was complaining because it's suppose to be in the low 80's this weekend! lol If it's this warm now, I hate to think what the summer is going to be like!

    Stay cool!

  8. ParentingPink said...

    I'm first? Yipee! I know what you mean about "be careful what you wish for." Scorching heat is no fun, but hey, pools are! It's only 68 degrees here, hoping we get some warm weather soon...I think!

  9. Keyona said...

    Yeah, I've been begging for warm weather here in DC but 100 degrees is not what I'm looking for either! Stay cool!

  10. Semi-Slacker Mom said...

    That is CRAZY! I thought GA weather was screwy. There was even a earthquake about 50 miles from us a few weeks ago. A mild one, but still.

  11. Tony@ That One Paticular Harbor said...

    I hear ya sister. My kids were griping on Sunday about how hot they were. It was 81. Which was a 30 degree swing from the days earlier, but as I told them. " Be happy it is not still raining." That is Portland for you.

  12. wife.mom.nurse said...

    Sweatin' and sympathizin' with you my friend ")

  13. Mary@Holy Mackerel said...

    Yikes!

    We have 4 C here, with icky rain. What I wouldn't give for some heat! And I can't even imagine swimming in an unheated pool!! There is a whole other world out there! :o)

  14. He And Me + 3 said...

    YOu are too funny. Our weather is crazy too, but in the cold area. So weird this year.

  15. ciara said...

    ridiculously hot here, too, and we're nowhere near water :-/

  16. mama's smitten said...

    Huh! I thought the same thing! Eathquake weather! Did you see the sky at sunrise ( Maybe not I think our school is the only school that starts at 7:50 forcing me to get up before sunrise to get there half way decent). Any how it was beautiful! Stay Cool ! Looks like a repeat of yesterday.

  17. Lori said...

  20. Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

    Sitting here in 40 degree weather... I would like me some of that 90s! But, you are right... three days of 90s and I'd be like... hello... could we get a break from the fiery pits of hell or what???

  21. Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

    Oh c'mon suck it up...I could send you the 42 and rainy that I have had...the wind alone makes me want to bundle up in 6 blankets.....=) I am totally jealous of your little heat wave!!!

  22. Nicole said...

    The weather has been soooo wierd! Last week we were in the middle of a blizzard and this week were at 80 flippin degrees. Hope it cools off for you! Stay cool.

  23. Swirl Girl said...

    No kidding about the heat! But it's a DRY heat, right? HAHAHAHA


    It was 102 when I picked the kids up at school yesterday...and I actually turned on the A/C at home which I didn't have to do all summer last year!!!

    (earthquake weather? crap!)

  24. Krystyn said...

    I'm going to stop complaining!

  25. Cathy said...

    Wow! 100 degrees?! I'll take our 70degree weather...hopefully it will last a little longer.

  26. Debbi-a1 said...

    Wow. We're 75 and so we have nice weather. 100 is way too hot. We get that in July and then it goes up until middle of August.
    There's another song that has lyrics like that, HOME by DAUGHTRY, but it goes "be careful what you wish for... you might just get it all... and then some you don't want." ;)

  27. Momo-Mama said...

    Yesterday was 97 in my Cali beach town, today was 10 degrees cooler ad go figure my daughter fainted with heat exhaustion! She's all good now, but just as we're getting used to this weather, tomorrow is supposed to be 20 degrees cooler than today...WTF! Definitely earthquake weather!
