It's not even September and I could open windows at night to cool my house. It's odd in Georgia, usually we have no fall and just skip to winter. Looks like we'll actually have a fall this year. I'm happy though, fall is my favorite allergies and cool weather! It's been high 80s in the day and 60s at night...aaah!

Here in Vegas, we just got below 100 this past weekend, but it's going back up by the end of the week. I SO miss Fall weather!
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.

Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, Glucosamine, D3, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!

Furnace? What's that? It's been over 90° every day this week. I'd be happy to share some of the heat.

Hey Lori, I get it!  I'm up north of Seattle.  We just got pellets for our pellet stove today and have it running to keep the chill off.  :)

Hmmmm, Rando,,,wheres that global warming thing ? We had a little cooler weather this weekend but no heater needed . I'm ready though. I can always put more cloths on , but if I take more off, I scare the neighbors....

Randy, meant to ask you...can you send some cool weather to Altanta?

Oh, and a couple nice days where it's in the 80s during the day and 60s at night. We don't usually have a nice fall, just a few nice days before the heat leaves completely. Though usually the "fall" days are scattered in hot days. It just means occasionally you can open the windows in the evening and give the AC a break!

I look forward to Sniper said, you can only take so many clothes off, but always can add more! I love snuggling up in blankets during the winter. I only set my heat to about 60 and walk around in jackets and slippers in the house!
