"The Far Side" Mug ;-)
Heh! I have many Far Side books, and I was thinking of that cartoon.Holy crap was it hot today. I just went outside to water the lawn and as of 10:00 the brick on my house is still roasting hot.
Funny, here in New England it's as cold and dreary a June as I can ever remember.
I've been on business trips in the Middle East where that thermometer is registering the low for the day.
The weatherman out here northern californi way says its only been in the 90's, but the burns I received from the car door handle, and my thermometer registering 103-104 the last two days tells me otherwise.
We have had low 90's and HUMID here in Wisconsin the past few days, it is absoultely brutal. I worked outside in it for just a few hours and almost passed out, and I am in tip top shape.
I dunno guys, sure seems nice in the DC area. In the 'xurbs where I live, we were in the upper 50's yesterday morning. I was in too much of a rush this morning to check the thermometer, but it felt like a rush of cool aircon when I walked out the door. It's just hot enough in the afternoon to break a sweat. :-)But I lived in the Deep South for years, and I know what you're suffering through, Lou. Heck, I lived in the South without air conditioning. That truly sucked. I remember sitting there, dripping sweat, as papers turned soft and posters curled. How my ancestors put up with that, I do not know.
If I so much as open my mouth you'll cyberlynch me so instead I'll just agree with Tesla about the NE weather this month.
Let me see if I have this right...some folks are shocked by Houston being hot in June?? Well come August you will think this is cool.
Here in the NYC suburbs, we've had rain 21 days in June so far. In May, we had 28 days of rain. It's been so cool at night, I haven't had to turn on the air conditioning.
I just remember the San Antonio Riverwalk about 11PM and 95 degrees and 110% humidity. Literally you'd wave your arm through the air and it would get wet. Local update. A heavier than expected marine layer will keep temps below 70 until midday.
I've seriously considered moving from Massachusetts to Texas but I don't think I could stand the heat. Then again people from Texas tell me they don't know how I can stand the snow here, so I guess you just get used to it.
A friend in Boston has been complaining about all the rain he has been getting. I offered to trade but for some reason he didn't want to. Still, I need to break down and fix the a/c in my car. Though no a/c does have its advantages: nobody wants me to drive when a group goes anywhere, nobody ever asks to borrow my car, I am losing weight with as much sweating as I am doing.
You're 5 thousand miles north of the Equator. Try a Brazilian jungle. Huston is like Switzerland.
I have to admit that I like this sh1t much better than the arctic -50 wind chill weather.
Damn, sun just came out and the temp jumped into the mid 70s and the ocean breeze is tepid. Life sucks. Lou, any time you want to visit and share the pain...
Do the requisite post about the chalk-faced homosexual pedophile who died today, before he could officially reach "dirty old man" status.
My perfect weather is late November in Houston, mid July in San Francisco.
