Do you do anything fun in this heat?

A decade and a half ago I'd probably have gone to Wet'n'Wild, a local water park, but they closed it so they could bulldoze everything and replace it with a construction-tool parking lot (yes, really). These days I mostly just stay inside, try to stay cool, and sometimes go to the apartment complex's pool.

Swimming is fun, but it's weird that the pool is sometimes colder in April/May than it is in the middle of January. They turn the heat on for the winter months but then turn it off before things actually get warm enough

I'd go swimming, I did that a lot when I was younger. But I kinda don't want to go alone, is the thing. I also kinda want to go wearing my swimsuit but it'd be pretty awkward still... :C

So I just end up sitting inside and trying to do my best to cope with the heat. Due to global warming things have gotten hotter around here, few places in Sweden have AC so... :I

Mostly just coping with the heat indoors, but swimming is pretty great. There's a couple good spots near here for bridge and/or cliff jumping, which can be pretty fun!

One nice (well, sometimes) thing is that the sun is up for a lot longer in summer months, so you can actually see outdoors well. Not as much of an issue in places that have lots of outdoor lighting, but it can be nice if you like that sort of thing.

We went swimming in a lake with friends! Always fun. There were ducks!

That's always fun, but the lakes here are really dirty and smell way too strongly of fish. Plus, nobody likes stepping on trash

I'd have gone swimming more recently than now, but the weather's been fairly bad (rain and thunderstorms), so best to stay out of it for the time being.

I try to go to a local water park once a year, 'cause I love me some water park.

Unfortunately I just spend all my time working so I tend to just stay inside.

We have not one but two water parks here, and they're both pretty bad from what I've heard. Expensive to get into and both smaller than the original one that shut down... the nearby one also has several drowning-related incidents and apparently always understaffs the lifeguard department

Get a slushie from a convenience store, put vodka in it, and sit in a kiddie pool in the shade to drink it. With friends.

tbf i prefer hiking in the spring/autumn.

that said, i'm going to go hike on the Olympic Peninsula this coming week. it'll be the first summery thing i've done this summer, pretty much.

summer has been pretty bad in Seattle this year, making it the first time i've ever had to use an AC unit. not only that, but the winds swept smoke from wildfires in British Columbia to Seattle, reducing our air quality, trapping heat & raising the humidity.

summer is usually beautiful here, but not this year.

Hopefully you have the AC unit handy for next year, because the way things are going it's not going to get any colder

The smoke thing is awful; hopefully it's gotten a lot better recently. I can't imagine suffering through that without any sort of indoor air stuff.

i do have it handy! it hibernates in my friend's storage until it's time for it to be redeployed.

the smoke lifted when the wind changed, so it's better now. but i'm nevertheless worried it'll also be back next year. the air quality then was bad, worse than China or India & in fact actually worse than much of the world.
