Thursday night the temperature on our thermometer said 76 degrees. We turned off the air-conditioning, raised the windows and turned on the small box fan that sat, facing out, in a third-floor window. That little fan drew cool air through the house all night long.   Having windows open felt different. The air currents were different. I keep a fan running in my bedroom for circulation even when the air-conditioning runs. The added breeze from the front window cooled me down, so I slept under a cotton blanket for the first night in more than a month.

A front of cold, Canadian air helped spawn Tuesday's storms, and it also means a stretch of dry, cool air ahead. While some storm chances appear again this weekend, overnight lows are plunging. As the storms passed through Tuesday afternoon, BWI Marshall Airport dropped 11 degrees in two hours, from 79 to 68. The overnight low fell to 60, which could actually be one of the warmest nights over the next week or so. Tonight, lows are expected in the mid-50s, with highs in the low- to mid-70s both Wednesday and Thursday.

The stretch of foggy mornings this week continues Thursday, and it will on Friday, too. A weak high pressure system that has kept weather nice in the afternoons for the most part is keeping winds light. That, coupled with high dewpoints overnight, is making the fog build up as temperatures fall into the early morning hours, said Kevin Whitt, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sterling, Va. Dewpoints at BWI Airport have virtually matched the temperature as it drops overnight, with both at 58 degrees as of 8 a.m. Visibility had been as short as 1/16 of a mile in some parts of Maryland and Virginia, but it grew to about a mile at BWI as of 9:30 a.m., Whitt said.

A violent storm that swept through Maryland last night dropped temperatures, dumped an inch of rain in some places, knocked out power to thousands of homes and cut off WBAL Radio's broadcast of the Orioles game when lightning struck a transmission tower. The storm arrived with a front of cool air that moved into Maryland from the Midwest, pushing hot humid air that sent temperatures and humidity soaring yesterday afternoon, said Andy Woodcock, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service.

Perseverance can indeed pay off. Just ask Garthen Leslie. For years, the 60-year-old Columbia resident has been trying to sell his invention ideas: a skateboard with an odometer and a speedometer, a sensory-equipped life vest for toddlers, and more. He was selling them all, but nobody was buying.  Until last fall, that is, when his proposal for a "smart" window air conditioner won rave reviews from Quirky, a five-year-old New York City-based company whose stated mission is to "make invention accessible.

Temperatures are expected to surge into the upper 90s starting Monday, with highs staying around there through the week. The heat index is expected to top 100 degrees. It's not just the high temperatures -- dew points in the 70s are expected to make it feel extra uncomfortable, and possibly unsafe for some vulnerable residents. Any dew point above the mid-60s indicates an oppressive stickiness. High temperatures on Monday will be in the lower 90s with a heat index of 101 expected this afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

What causes tornadoes? In Tornado Alley, where a tornado killed at least 24 people in Moore, Okla., Monday, the disasters are relatively frequent when moist air from the Gulf of Mexico meets dry, cool air from the Rocky Mountains. Instability caused by such differences in air temperatures fuels even common thunderstorms. But in the case of the Moore tornado, the severity was increased because of a particularly strong blast of cool air from the jet stream mixing with warm Gulf air that built up over the weekend, explained AccuWeather.com's Henry Margusity . The moist air moves in low to the ground, without any geographic obstructions over the flat Midwest.

LOS ANGELES - I love air conditioning. Growing up in Atlanta, we never had it. Atlanta is a bad place to grow up without air conditioning. All summer we were hot and miserable. It was awful. I begged my father to buy a window unit. He said he would but he never did. Other priorities, perhaps. We did not have air conditioning in the car, either. The whole family would drive around hot, quiet, edgy. Sometimes my parents would flick their cigarette ashes out the window and we'd get ashes in the face.

This past week has been very hard on a lot of people. We are so used to flipping a switch and the lights go on. Press a button and air conditioning clicks on to cool our homes. This past week has shown a lot of people how dependent they have become on these luxuries that we all take for granted. I, too, find that, when I am without AC, I become very grouchy and am not nice to be around. I like being able to turn on TV on a hot night and enjoy the cool air blowing on me while I indulge in watching.

You may have noticed the quiet in Wordville over the past couple of days. Two things happened on Friday night: the addition of derecho  to the working vocabulary, and the loss of electrical power to Casa McIntyre.  So Sunday and Monday, my regular days off, were devoted not to regaling you with posts but with emptying the refrigerator and freezer, and related tasks. Among the related tasks, following the old Southern method of opening the house at night to allow the cool air in, then closing it up against the heat in the morning, with limited success.
