    Default Current Weather in Purgatory

    Currently it is 99' at 1755, with 45% humidity. Do you know how awful 45% humidity feels when it is 99'?

    No A/C?.... Are you in North Carolina?

    And yes, I do know how humidity feels.... horrid!
    I lived in Florida and Bangkok. It was like living inside a hot sauna.

    Are you staying in purgatory, or will you be heading north into Hell anytime soon?

    Staying in purgatory this time, with a few trips back and forth to hell.

    At least a dry air pattern is back, the fall weather here on the gulf means more humid spells, but this morning my glasses did not fog up immediately on departing my room.

    Still, going to be hot today... somewhere around 114... but drier.

    How’s the family doing post-hurricane? Is everyone okay?

    Pish posh... been through 99 and 80%... 45% isn't too bad.

    That being said... still sucks. Hate stepping outside and instantly feeling like I am drenched in sweat.

    Everyone made it through just fine... good to be on post for housing. They only lost power twice, for just about an hour each time.

    Some areas of Fayetteville got hammered though from the water.

    Good dry day today, but talking with a few people that are regulars (I cannot believe how many contractors I've worked with before are still around), Sep and Oct are when these humid days settle in. At least the temps are supposed to start heading lower in a few weeks.

    Glad you and everyone with you is fine. Stay safe and I hope it gets back to normal for you soon.

    Hot, but not as hot as it was before... We might have high temps under 100 around next Monday. Also a chance - yes a chance - of thunderstorms. Rain in the desert, I'll take it, even with the humidity. It's a wonder to miss rain. Unfortunately, home will be getting some more rain and wind soon with Matthew projected to move over NC.

    In good news, with all the games on ESPN this year, there is a good chance a number of them will be on AFN, especially after the new year (football does rule). But hoping the W.tv works out for the others.

    Today was the first day officially under 100. It actually only made it to 95, but 58% humidity at the same time... so the feels like was 106 or something.

    Went from stupid hot to hot and muggy to thunderstorms and some rain (what, it rains here?) to a beautiful 78' today. Feels cool outside at 78' love it. Looks like a week in the 80's the next one with another chance at showers. Much better time of year than summer.

    I had to brush a couple inches of snow off of my truck on Thursday.

    Are you and Mrs. Sarenyon thinking about a permanent return to New England when you finally hang up those dusty boots?

    If she could convince me to like the cold a little more, We'd be moving up to your neck of the woods. As it is, maybe out West to OR (Bend area), or maybe VA around Charlottesville. Mountains while still just a few (half day) hours to a beach... so still looking at options after 3 more years.

    So we've been getting rain in Kuwait... yes rain. And significant amounts.

    In the last two weeks we have received almost 3 inches of rain... Kuwait normally receives 3.5 to 4 inches per year! The minister of public works resigned over the failure of the roads systems and drainage issues. We will receive maybe another half an inch over the next three days.

    A lovely 68* with a nice dry, cool breeze out of the west. Different from the typical fog in the morning... yes fog, when the wind is down the dew point in the desert is actually pretty high, considering.

    This is a good time of the year to get those outdoor workouts in. I logged a lot of miles on tread mills when I was there, but missed taking advantage of a lot of the cool weather because I was recovering from a surgery during most the winter.

    It has been nice. A bit too cool for pool workouts, but I've been getting a bit of bike in. Still hitting the eliptical and the dred mill more often than outside.

    A lovely Christmas Eve day, High about 65 with a cool breeze and sunny skys. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas.

    Well it was a nice winter and a nice spring here in Purgatory, but as the days get longer, the heat begins to come. Today was our first above 90'. Many, many more to come.

    Got a nice trip up north last month for a few weeks. Head home on leave this next week - very looking forward to that - then back to the heat of early May and into the Summer.
