9:30 am here in north central Fl. & 86.7 degrees, 71% humidity. Sunny skies. Prediction is for a high of 95 but here, the humidity will likely go down with that temp.

Low 70s here before 8 am this morning. I hate hate hate getting up early but I certainly can't complain about our high desert mornings, they sure are great. We should be baking right around 100 or so for the next three days though. Thankfully I'm not really sure that there is such a thing as humidity here. The fire closest to home should be contained today thankfully so maybe some firefighters will get to go home and get a break from this oppressive heat.

I'm thinking of the summer I spent a few weeks back home in PA, it was only about 85 most days but so humid that it felt like we were breathing pea soup and if you so much as moved an inch you'd be covered in sweat head to toe. You guys can keep that crap thank you very much. I'll keep my mountain views, weeks and weeks at a time of sunshine and dry air.

It cooled off to the 80's yesterday and it should be this way all week here in NY. It's only 75 right now. (I like it hotter, honestly)

Like Sylvia, we need some rain or the grass will be toast soon.

:(

Our grass IS toast. We were DOWN to only 90 on Sunday and we were all happy about it.

This week we're in the high 80's and just down right exstatic.

I wish it would rain. :unsure:

No rain here either...my brown crunchy lawn hasn't been mowed since June 20. At this rate I may not get a bill from the lawn care company this month.

Around 114 to 120 today (depending on what part of town). Yesterday my car said 119.

Ugh.

My friend's daughter lives in Portland. She just graduated from medical school there and she says it is paradise. :) She sends me pics and well, it sure looks like it.

It's on our list too, J.

I must say, I was actually born in Florida and then my family lived in Alabama. I was way too young to remember any of it. We have lived in Oregon since I was 5 and it makes it very difficult to visit other places without feeling way too hot! I love that there is not much humidity, because I cannot stand to 'glisten' (since girls don't sweat). I think the Willamette Valley is one of the only places where you will use your car heater in the early morning, the AC in the afternoon and the heater again at night!

I also heard that Oregon is one of the places that sells the most sunglasses since we always misplace them during the fall/winter/spring months when we don't use them everyday! It doesn't take too long to grow webbed feet!

Ah, a real Oregonian tells us the truth....so, for the most part, it is too wet!

Bless you and thanks for the real answer....um, I do not need webbed feet.

It's plenty wet (with snow) here in NY. A Bostonian by birth, I've had my share of the "wet stuff".... :lol:

Exactly 100 with humidity. This is GROSS! How on earth do you people cope? This is only our fourth very hot day and I am a bit cranky and almost wishing for snow. I do not know what is worse: 100F or -40F. Actually, I still think -40F is worse and we have that for weeks on end.

Anyway, did I mention this is gross? :P I am dripping sweat not even doing anything. :angry:

The other thing you have to watch out for in Oregon is the moldy armpits :blink:

Move to Vancouver, WA. You don't pay state income tax (Oregon), and you can shop in Portland and not pay sales tax (Washington).

Our heat wave finally broke a few days ago. In the 80's today, low 60's tonight. But it looks like it's going to start creeping back up into the 90's later in the week. We've not used to this kind of heat this early.

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
