How hot is it?

    It's so hot that it makes me want to take off my skin, and sit in my bones....

    I can't wait for winter. This weekend it's been all over 40 Celsius... today it rained so it was like a sauna outside. Not very pleasant. The first day was nice I went bike riding to the lake... but it didn't go away... I think it's getting to my head.

    It's about as hot as the hottest days of summer usually get around here. Maybe 5 degrees hotter, but it's really no big deal. This happens every year.

    Maybe I'm not suffering so much after spending the last few days in rivers and lakes in New Hampshire though.

    Lol, 40 is only a few degrees hotter than the hottest days around here. If we just look at it in Celsius :tongue:. I think that's almost 110 Farenheit.

    Yeah, that's pretty hot. It's "only" 100 here, but it hits the mid to upper 90s for a few days most summers so it's not all that unexpected.

    110 is pretty brutal though. Good luck with that.

    It's so hot that I can't wait to get in my non-air conditioned black truck tomorrow and drive 150 miles. :frown:

    At least there's a cool creek to sit in when I arrive.

    Ooo! Hypatia. You should run up to Porcupine. That looks very inviting

    It's so hot that the bird of paradise flew up Ed McMahon's nose. I never did get Johnny Carson's humor.

    hot? only mid-90s here. and 70% humidity. which is pretty par for the course in alabama. at least we're not in a drought, anymore, so it's kind of hard to complain.

    Back in April, you could not have convinced me that traveling 500 miles south would involve cooler weather

    62 degrees and cloudy outside. And it was raining in the morning. RAINING ... IN JULY ... What's next? The dead rising from the grave? Dogs and cats living together?

    P.S. oh, and we just had a yet another magnitude 5.4 less than a hundred miles away.

    We are headed into yet again another 95+ deg day with oppressive humidity. I don't care much if the meteorologists get to call this a "heat wave" or not - the weather is dangerous, especially if you have respiratory or circulatory problems.

    It's only bad for people with respiratory problems if there is air stagnation. That was often a problem in Houston since the city was in a hole created by years of pumping water out of the underground lake beneath it. Heat will obviously cause peripheral swelling.

    Where do you live?

    Seriously, I just went to San Diego 2 weeks ago to study at UCSD for the summer and it's like winter right now... so cold I need to wear sweaters to school. :eek:
