    Lots of news reports on very hot weather around the world. Some, in the usual places like Pakistan and India seem very far away. 49C sounds pretty damned hot, though. Other reports are closer to (my) home - Spain and France hit mid 30's and low 40's (C) which is very hot for June in these parts.
    And, of course, heat warnings for the US South West and expectations of deaths as a result. How bad is it?

    Here? The usual - bright spells, scattered showers, dry spells, heavy rain, and unseasonably windy weather. We rarely get gales in June until last year, and this.
    I was never very good in heat but, as I get older it is more difficult to handle. What will it be like when I'm 90?

    Still bad, no relieving rain yet.

    Monsoon season starts soon, it's been clouding up like it wants to rain.

    The ground stays a generally constant temperature of about 13C between a depth of 10-60 meters. If that suits, start digging. It also would work in winter.
    Partially underground homes are awesome and nicely temperature stable if you only dig down some, and as we face more energy crises and hotter climates they may become necessary. I've been thinking how to incorporate that into my home as we have been warned we face possible electricity blackouts now, of course the blackouts will be during the hottest part of the day in summer. Not having a/c at these times will be very dangerous for people, including me.

    So, I'm trying to figure out self-sustainable solar/battery/low use ac setups, and trying to figure out how to stay warm in winter too since natural gas heating is becoming unaffordable.

    ^ we have solar PV on the roof. It's great! It would seem a perfect match for your part of the world - lots of sunshine when the need for electric power is high (for A/C).

    That's cool, I'd like to hear some details of your experience - size of system, cost, how it does for you etc.

    I face some obstacles. My roof faces the wrong way (West) so roof panels are probably out. I have a covered back patio, the cover would be good for solar panels, but my neighbor to the South has a HUGE tree in their back yard which shades most of my back yard in winter.

    Cost - LiFePO4 batteries, solar panels, and the needed equipment are damned expensive, and you need a LOT of it to run a house. If I did it properly, I'd have to license and permit any permanent installation, probably have to hire electricians etc., and that would put it in the can't afford category for sure.
    I also want to take it with me if I leave this house.
    So, it has to be a DIY installation, not permanent, not tied to the grid or my house wiring, and easily taken down if I get caught and ordered to remove.

    This would still serve and I have plans to do it. At minimum I'll have something that will run my refrigerator, freezer and a/c's in case of blackouts or electricity becoming unaffordable.
    I'm looking at the Bluetti AC300, it's pretty much all-in-one and expandable.

    This will also take time as I'm too busy now and don't have the money yet.

    Monsoon season is suddenly here. Lower temps, which are welcome. Hope it delivers some decent rain for us. Go, monsoon!

    It's warm here, too. Almost 20C! Wow!

    Nearly 70F. Plenty warm enough for me.

    It's been months since we've had any appreciable rain whatsoever.

    We just got a good shower, almost felt like running out in it. More on the way. yayhooo!
