RE: Man, oh man it's HOT!
Today's forecast can be summed up this way.

RE: Man, oh man it's HOT!
Well it finally came here. Yesterday I finally finished my running around and got home around 3:30-4:00 and the thermometer under the carport on the east side of the house was still registering 98 degrees. I would bet we got over 100 yesterday! It was one of those days where you go to the mall for the A/C!

At least you HAVE grass...our yard is an overgrown mess of weeds...and where we can see the ground, it's cracked from lack of water.

I am located in Northern California, recent temperatures are 80C for days and 60C for nights. Occasionally we have a few hot days and nights, I feel extremely bad for those nights because I am using a full face mask with a S9-VPAP, even I set the temperature at humidifier temperature to 60C (min), I still feel the heat. I wonder if there is any devices that can cool the CPAP airflow during these hot nights?

You mean F not C - right ...You can try using the humidifier in passover mode. Setting turned off but water in the tank and some people said they use cold water or add an ice cube

Not so bad today. Got home around 3:45 and it was only 93-ish. Fired up the BBQ, not turning on that oven!

But what was your humidity?

Yesterday it was just in the upper 80's but felt like it was over 100.
