79 degrees in Seattle today and I can’t move. LOL I know I know it’s 128 with 98% humidity where you live. But hey we have only had 3 days over 80 so far this summer so my big fat belly and me are not used to the heat. My shop has full southern exposure so it heats up like crazy. Well this can only last for a few more days.

I am having some of my bowls professionally photographed on Saturday! I am hoping it is cool enough to turn 2 or 3 more by then….

It was 34C yesterday,which is about 93F. We’ve had a stretch of 30+ weather last several days and more to come according to the weather folks. Mind you it was a nice 27 today, it actually felt ‘cool’ after the last several days :-)

We were thrilled last week when it finally dropped below 100.
Very little humidity though—sort of like an oven

Lucky you. In parts of Texas, we have not seen 79 in a couple of months. I just saw the forecast on the Weather Channel, the coolest it is expected to be in the next week is 80!!!!!!!!!!!!
