I am still just a few degrees too hot to open the house. Tried it yesterday, but had to go back the ac after a couple of hours.

Mid day is still hot here, too, but mornings and late mid to late afternoon are nice!

I don't mind some noise, I don't care if people have occasional loud parties or anything like that. That's life. This has jsut gotten unbearable. And now that we're finally getting nice weather, I'd like to sit in my yard or open the windows and enjoy it!!!
Do you talk to them regularly? I would start getting to know them, then it will be easier to talk to them about the noise.

I feel your pain, though!

I loooove this weather! We've still got the heat off and the windows cracked at night. I think it was 54 in the house when we woke up yesterday morning. Then it was barely sweatshirt weather for playing in the yard with the dogs.

Heh. To me, it feels like fall when I'm NOT sweating balls during the midday dog walk.
:)

I'm waiting for it to get just a bit cooler, then I'm going to tackle my grandmother's stuffed pepper recipe again. I NAILED that sucker last winter and I've been afraid to make it ever since, thinking I can only do worse!

There are rules about excessive noises/decibel levels during the day time. You are entitled to the "peaceful enjoyment" of your own home. Check into it.

I don't. They are across a cul-de-sac. And I am a orner house, so it's like their front yard is across the street from my backyard. There's really no buffer.

I'd google "Noise Ordinance [city], Florida" "[city]" meaning your city.

I'm more south, but do we have a real fall in the panhandle?
Fall is like 2 weeks, then we're hot or straight to cold.
I don't mind a couple degrees drop but it was overcast and dreary out. That depresses me. I love my sun.

Okay group, I saw Gravity in the IMAX version.

Wow. Intense, but Wow.

I saw it on our mega screen (not quite IMAX) in 3D, and that's my take on it, too.

That's really the worst part about winter here. 40 and sunny is a whole lot easier to take than 40 and overcast.

Good to know, about Gravity. It's on the docket for Friday night's date night (IMAX 3D... It's both or neither around here).
