The bit about the jacket was a bit of hyperbole in the name of humor, folks.
When people's brains are fried from the heat, you expect them to be on the ball?
I no do good in hot.
Did you hear that? Sounds like something frying.
Yeah, the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, and just listen to those birds frying in the trees...
After all... it's 110 today.
I saw someone in sweat-pants and a long sleeve shirt today! And it's 90.
Listen, around these parts, it's not uncommon to see little old folks shuffling around in JACKETS and COATS, even when it's up in the triple digits.
Conversly, sometimes during the winter, it's not uncommon to see dudes walking around in tank-tops and gym shorts.
I know exactly what you mean. I live in PA and we've had summer like weather in March. Our falls don't always cool down like they used to anymore. I used to look forward to nice cool weather in late September, but in recent years that hasn't really happened until late October/early November. I guess the problem is global warming.
Global Warming IS the culprit, it's just that so many people out there refuse to accept it, simply because of Al Gore (I swear, if Bush said the same thing, we'd all be doing what we could to prevent any further Global Warming from happening).
This year, I think the entire country was experiencing unseasonably warm weather this March. Being down here in the south, much of the month of September is still pretty hot for us, but USUALLY, October's kind of 50/50: half of the month is still pretty warm, but more spring-like warm rather than summer-like hot, while the other half is cool enough to wear long pants, but not quite chilly enough to warrant a sweater or anything, but November usually marks the beginning of sweater-weather (which I LOVE).
Again, that's usually, but the last couple of years or so, that hasn't quite been the case.
I miss the possibility of snow in April in Philly
*Snickers* Yeah, apparently there's an old saying that, "If it thunders in February, it'll snow in April."
Well, two years in a row, it thundered in February, so Mother Nature owes us two snowy Aprils that we were denied.
Heck, for it to snow in DECEMBER down here isn't very common... it'll snow in January, MAYBE in February. The winter of 2010-2011 was amazingly strange for us, we had all kinds of snow and ice for almost all of December and January (but then we had an early spring in February that ruined it). 2011-2012, we had NO winter at all, it was basically an extended fall.
I wish I was still living in Philly. This triple digit heat is awful. I just went outside for 2 minutes to walk my dog, and I thought I was going to just pass out there.
Summers in the south aren't fun, are they Sarge?
But yeah, I remember last year, or the year before last, it was so hot outside, you could break a sweat just STANDING IN THE SHADE! Last year, it heat, combined with the humidity, and the UV rays was so bad, they warned people that if they went outside, they would literally burn within ten minutes.
Well, we were supposed to get a thunderstorm this evening: the warning is supposed to expire in the next four minutes, so where was the thunderstorm? It got cloudy, but there wasn't any rain, or thunder, or lightning, or anything.
Well hopefully, it appears the current string of 100+ degree days comes to an end tomorrow, and we'll be in the low and mid 90s for a while... hardly an improvement really.
Since it's been SO hot, the local traffic guy who does Dance Party Fridays on the morning news did a little 'Tribute to the Heat'. This is the best I could do cause I couldn't find it on YouTube.
Ho-ly crap! I just saw on the news that the constant 100+ degree weather we've had over the weekend was the cause of a fish kill in a community pond/lake in South Knoxville... I mean, literally, hundreds, maybe even thousands of fish were just floating there in the water, dead... apparently, when the temperatures exceed over a hundred, the heat sucks the oxygen out of the water, suffocating the fish and killing them.
One of the weirdest things I've ever seen!
Anyway, today saw some minor improvements, we're down into the 90s, it's still fricken hot, but still, at least it's not the 100s.
You made me snort from trying to stifle a laugh, Snowth.
I've been putting out seed and water for the birds 'cos it seems like there isn't anything for them...hot as hades and a drought. MONTHS of drought. And today we have smoke haze from wildfires. Lovely.
Supposedly the monsoon starts tomorrow. I ain't holding my breath.
I did that just this past weekend.
What's even worse is that I just saw the forecast on the monitor at my local grocery store is that we're expecting temperatures in the 90s all week. I really think after this we're going to need cool weather once fall begins.
Or another thing here in the Southeast with our really high humidity. You step into the shower to cool off and refresh. Five minutes later after you get out, you feel just as sticky and icky again. /lol
