    Leave. It cost me thousands, a massive hit to my career, a lot of hand wringing in my relationship, but I cut my losses and left fled.

    This is the part where it will be 99% humidity 24/7 until late October but every day gomestar will say "it's a nice day out."

    My first apartment was this little shitty two bedroom with a friend of mine. Our AC bills (only had small units in the bedrooms) was over $300 in the summer, in the winter it was always freezing and our gas bills were like $400ish. The place was really poorly insulated though. With the windows shut you could still see the curtains blow and such when the wind blew. Horrible. I have hydronic heat now, which works really well and much cheaper. It wouldn't be good for a whole house though.

    For some reason I am always surprised by how humid it stays through September.

    I hate the continued 40% chance of storms in the PM all summer as well. Have no idea how to dress, or prepare. Sometimes there will be a stretch of days with 40% chance of storms and nothing for days. Then day I don't bring the umbrella that's when I get hit.

    Hopefully we won't get another 1 in 400 super storms this year.

    yesterday was very nice out. Hell, I walked 15 blocks there and back to get lunch, and I arrived back at the office dry and fine. It got hot later on in the afternoon, but it's August, and August should never be jacket necessary weather.

    i don't mean suit jacket, but the type of jacket that you have to slug around should it get cold when the sun goes down. Basically, October weather.

    SanFo. But for a few shining moments my year of fibonacci madness. It's a miracle I'm alive.

    ^ Oct is the greatest weather of all.
