100 Degrees in NYC

It is hot. So hot that when you wake up in the morning, thee last thing you want to do is get dressed. Why can't it be socially acceptable to just be bare on a day like today?

Further complicating matters is that I have a thing against air conditioning. I spend way too much time in the fall, winter and spring whining about how I can't wait for summer. The last thing I am going to do is turn on the AC once the temperature hits 80 degrees. Not me, not at my house. I refuse to miss a second of summertime.


However, my bullheadishness becomes a problem this one week of the year when temperatures hit 100 degrees in NYC. It is necessary to find relief somewhere however, and this weekend, I found it at KMart.

The Cooling Tower fan is not only aesthetically-pleasing. It is a better design that the classic table top fan. (Space is a serious issue in NYC.) With the baby blowing on oscillate, high... You'd hardly know it was a smidge above 80 degrees.

I always thought it would be acceptable to walk around NYC in the nud!! :o)
I gotta say though - last summer around new year we had a few 45 degree celsius days (115 fahrenheit) so I feel your pain!!!

Pook - I'm a big Brian Lehrer fan...

Air conditioning really only makes things worse. We've all felt it, you are inside nice and cool, then you step outside and the air conditioning system is blasting hot air onto the street -- only further adding to the steamy temperatures.
