83 this morning.  We got up to 94° yesterday and should be about the same today.  It should be a bit cooler next week but still in the 80s.
We have a gas grill from Home Depot.  It has 6 burners and a motor driven rotisserie which is great for several different items.  I like charcoal but the gas is so much more convenient and since we BBQ most of the time it really makes it easy.  You can also add wood chips for a different flavor.  This grill is well made and I believe it should last for a while.

150 this morning.

Grammabear, I've been using a cheap Home Depot charcoal grill  for about two years. It's been fine, but sort of flimsy. I'll replace it next year with a Weber grill made of better materials. I've given up on gas grills as they just don't last and I've had several from cheap to expensive. Charcoal's a little more hassle, but you can't beat the flavor especially if you add wood chips for smoking. Plus, it's much easier to put away in the winter. No matter what, when I grill, it's much easier to do after dinner kitchen clean up. I've often considered building my own of brick and cooking over a wood fire, but haven't the energy to actually build one.

117 this morning, 96 at. bedtime last night.

Thanks Grammabear, the Navigator is one of the ones I've been looking at. I know Tamagno, there are so many models it makes my head spin and I'm sure they update regularly. Thanks all for the input.

High today was 62° overnight prediction 33°.

Barbara ~ My Shark vacuum is called the Navigator and it is lightweight, easy to maneuver. It has no bag, but instead a canister that is easy to empty.  It also has a washable foam filter that is super easy to clean, let air dry and reuse.  Hope this helps a little.

82 this morning.  We grill out most nights all year around.  Last night though I made Crack Slaw and I am always amazed at how kind it is to my bg and I eat quite a bit of it. 
Yeah SKB, I agree that anything over 100°F or around 88°C is definitely scorching.  Right now we are around the mid 80s F, around 30° C, and that is comfortable and really quite nice for this area. 
Barbara, I only have experience with the Shark cordless so I can't say anything about the other models but I would think it would be Ok to compare the features and see which fit your needs.  It is nice sometimes to be able to see the actual item in the store but you cant try them out so all you really get is a chance to look at it.  At least on Amazon you can compare one to the other and note which has the better fit to what you want.
