Ohh Lawdy, where's my Mint Julep?
« on: June 26, 2012, 06:41:02 PM »
I was out a bit ago and It's so difficult to breathe, it's like trying to breathe in an oven. \

My balls are sticking to my legs and my anti-wrinkle cream is melting and running into my eyes. Not pretty.

These arent even the highs..Austin checked in at 109, SA at 107.

Hotter n a $2 pistol.

If I see one more photo on facebook of a temperature gauge or thermometer, I'm going to scream.  It's summer.  It's Texas.  It's hot.  You'd think these people never have seen this before.

I suppose it's safe to assume that this forum will never hold its annual AMG anywhere in Texas. I pass out when it gets above 90F and just stay indoors.

ps: it's currently 78℉ here

What a bunch of wimps down there in Texas.  You live in the south, grow a pair!!

It's supposed to be 101 in Richmond on Saturday (and I'm sure we will have far more humidity than you get in Texas, so it will "feel" even hotter)
I'm going to head down to Busch Gardens in Williamsburg for the day.  Nothing like some rollercoasters to take the edge off the heat!

Wump's "pair" appears to be part of the issue, though I wonder how his testosterone injections are affecting his "pair".  Reference his statement above:

Nobody lives way up on Gornegrat.  Just some hot hikers.   8)

We get unusual heat waves in the last 10 years, too. There was an awful one about 10 years ago in fact, but by chance I happily spent the summer working in London where it was NOT sweltering, in fact perfectly lovely.

In the long term, "they" say in fact Europe will get colder if the rest of the world gets hotter and the Gulf Stream goes wacko.

I remember saving my pennies to buy an air conditioner for my apartment in Brooklyn.  New York summers have always been sweltering.  That air conditioner was too small and the electricity bill was gonna be high no matter what. In the dog days, It only cooled the lower 5 - 6 feet of the apartment! It was surreal.  Had to sleep on the floor. 

Used to deal in my 20's with the soupy summers without air conditioning. I liked the heat and found it sensual. 

Well then you get older and just can't deal anymore.

My partner called me in a panic because our 2nd story thermostat is set to 73 degrees and the upstairs temperature was 79. We had the air conditioner serviced in April so he was convinced the unit was broken and we would be spending several thousand dollars having the system replaced. I told him it was 102 degrees outside and maybe it just couldn't keep up. The air conditioner repair guy was at the house within an hour and confirmed my suspicions-- the air conditioning ducts in our attic have insufficient insulation and the unit can't keep the upper floor at 73 degrees when it is over 100 degrees outside.

I'm sure the 1.2 million without power right now in the DC area, due to 80mph wind/thunderstorm around 10 PM, appreciate your concern today Dennis, considering how it's going back to 100F today. This would also include my elderly parents, though their power fortunately came back on an hour ago.

I'm sorry you are having this problem but so glad you posted this . My bedroom seems to be hotter than any room in the house so I went and bought a bit more insulation to put in the attic over my bedroom .

After reading your post it hit me that I noticed all of my duct work in the attic is below the insulation but for some reason the ducts to my bedroom were run above it . I'm going to have to go up there tonight when it cools off and cover them with insulation . Thanks Ford !

Here on the Rock they're only giving highs of 58 14.4C and 59 15C for at least the next ten days. Lows of 50 10C (tonight), to 53 11.6C or 54 12.2C through the rest of the week. We had a few days in the low 70s a couple weeks ago and that's probably it for summer for us.  :-\

That's terrible news about the storms in the eastern states. Just heard about it on BBC Radio 2 a little while ago. They've been having massive flooding in parts of England, but it's just cold and windy here with rain every day, but not flood-worthy rain. Well, apart from a week ago friday. My front garden was a mini lake.

Ah, and to make it worse I'm now reading there's a high likelihood of similar weather pattern in the Mid-Atlantic for this evening, stretching from Virginia to just south of me, winds in excess of 55 mph.

Evidently these are called "derechos" or land hurricanes. Never heard of that.

http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/deadly-super-derecho-strikes-m/67383

I barely missed being in the effected area where I live. Some place in southern New Jersey and hour from me had a 81 mph wind gust last night.

If my power went out right now I'd be screwed since I'm still using a cane post-foot surgery and basically housebound.

I did worry about you, Miss P, when I heard the reports on the radio. I checked and saw you were still here posting away as usual and was greatly relieved. I hope you get through the night with your power intact particularly given your current circumstance.

Ms P, so glad your parents' power came back.  I sure hope your area is able to get through that strange weather without an outage.

Just finished listening to this on Local radio Miss P, the world's weather is going mad, summer was always a time everyone looked forward to.

I've been complaining about the cold here, but all I have to do is put on another layer and I'm comfortable again, it's extremely hard to get away from temps of 100+ with no power.

I Hope power is restored soon.

I sure hope the east coast folks are getting the power back on quickly . Its 103 here today and supposed to go higher and the humidity is up as well .

I'm house bound and bored due to the heat the last few days so that's why I'm crapping in every damn thread on the forum . My dog wont even go outside , she useally follows me out to the patio when I go for a smoke but today she only lays in the floor and sticks her cute bulldog head out the pet door to watch .

It's only 94F here today, though normally for us that's quite hot (normal high average is 86F for today). I think the worst I've seen is Nashville at 107 the other day.

LOL  ;D

It's a delightful 86 here in God's Country, light cool rain falling. Quite unusual but very welcome.

The weather here in Virginia has been awful.  I have been very lucky -- have kept my electricity through it all.  That Derecho that swept through on Friday night really was something -- I was sure the big pin oak in my from yard was going to fall down it was bent over so badly.  In the end though, no real damage -- lots of tree limbs in my yard, had to fish one patio umbrella out of the bottom of the pool and another one was blown to bits (mind you, both umbrellas were closed when the storms hit).  Many others are much worse than I, so am thankful.  How anyone could be dealing with the temps this weekend without A/C is beyond me.  I have no idea how I did it as a kid.

88 here in Miami - but a hot 88...
The sun is beaming - --- A/C has been running the whole day.
I truly feel for those up North in these unbearable temperatures and with no A/C and/or no electric.

Hopefully, they are finding somewhere cool to spend the day and evening and the heatwave will break soon enough.

Pew......  finally I had a date with the rain summer thunder-showers abound ( a much needed event) I went out on my patio NAKED and just let the rain fall  :P

been 101 here in ABQ for the last week or so, now it's cool balmy 87 outside,

a lot better than that horrid 101 in the shade, and with the swamp-cooler

makes it a nice 71 in the house.............life is so good  :)

I talked to my friend Tina in Fredericksburg earlier. They were without electricity only for a short while, but she says some neighborhoods on the north side of the Rappahanok(sp?) are still without. I feel horrible for those people.
