SoCS: ungodly

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is starts with “u.” Find a word that starts with the letter “u” and use it however you’d like. Bonus points if it’s the first word in your post.

U got that right, Linda! Scorching heat, steaming heat with the humidity. Its ungodly . . . as in hell.

I remember not having an air conditioner. We would have a heat wave for a few days but nothing like this. We could get by with fans. Now I am so grateful to have air conditioning. Heat, like last weekend literally makes me sick: I don’t handle heat well at all. At least in the winter I can bundle up and go out on the trail. Summer is the only season I don’t go in the woods.

Unnatural. But it is nature so I guess its natural now. What I really hate is having to close the curtains in the afternoon as the sun blazes into my west facing windows. I really feel stuck in the house. I ran out to water once a day and felt like my head was exploding. For 4 days I did this; I was having pandemic isolation flash-backs!

But now its over. Yesterday I mowed my lawn, all of it. Today I’ll do some weeding. The mosquitoes have subsided. Even they don’t like extreme heat.

It looks like I’ve run out of ‘u’ ideas.

  1. I hear ya. I don’t do heat well at all, either. Right now, east of you (don’t think I’m south, I may actually be north!) though it is now a blessedly cool 56 F, although the day is early. Yes, thank the deities for a/c. I’d be… well, I don’t want to think where I’d be without it.

  2. I used to do better with heat than I do now. Dehydration is a real thing so drink lots of water if you go out. We’ve been having weeks of temps in the 90s. Today’s high is in the 80s – what a relief! Makes me want to move north, but apparently that’s no guarantee.
