    Of course, for that kind of weather, I'd have to move to San Francisco.

    Okay, I was really worried that the heat was going to continue into this week as well, but it apparently isn't, we're finally back to normal and it appears we're going to stay that way. While I'm still bummed about losing half of September, at least we didn't end up losing three-quarters like it looked like we were going to.

    Still, I have a feeling that I'll be back in this thread in December - I have a feeling we'll be seeing more spring-like conditions again this December.

    The tropics have been very active lately. That's usually a sign that winter (at least in the North East) is going to be a very active season. Which worries me. I can't stop thinking of that horrid pattern we had 2 years ago when we had a blizzard at least every two to three days for a couple weeks. Last year/this year, other than 2 days of record breaking below normal temps with Below Zero windchills in February, we really didn't have a terrible winter. It still had cold days and some snow..and then, first week of April 2 snowstorms. I really really don't trust spring-like Decembers. The year we had 60 on Christmas, things fell apart late January and the entirety of February. I'd rather have a cold December and get it all out of the way first.

    As for heat, I don't particularly mind it, but Humidity is disgusting. It can make mid-60's weather feel like 90's. The other night was terribly mucky, and it made the cool enough temps feel much worse than they really were. We've had some dry upper 70's days that actually felt cool and comfortable. And not just by comparison, either.

    The heat came back. THE HEAT CAME BACK! This is absolutely, totally, and completely unnecessary! We had finally dropped down to a normal/seasonal temperature just three days ago, and then all of the sudden, the heat is on again, and apparently will be so for the rest of the week. In the words of Gilbert Gottfried:

    They said on the news yesterday that we're close to our record amount of 90+ degrees days for a year this year: the current record stands at 78 days, which was set back in the 1930s (1936, I believe they said), and we're presently at 74 as of today, and we still have a couple of more days to go after this, which bring us to 76 days of 90+ degree weather this year. That's comin' awful close to tying that record.

    I can still remember a number of years back when we broke the record for warmest Thanksgiving day ever (mid-to-upper 70s) and all the news people were so happy about it, like, "YAYZ! WE DID IT! WE BROKE THE RECORD! THIS IS THE WARMEST THANKSGIVING EVER! WOO-HOO!" With it being in the 70s for Christmas last year, that has to be the warmest Christmas ever.

    Seriously, I have to put up with this all the time, which is why this year, I decided I was going to b!+c# about summer to anybody I encountered when they ask the mandatory, "how are you today?" Though, to my surprise, a number of people actually sided with me about it.

    Still, it would be nice if we could go one year without people being like, "Wahh! It's too cold!" "Wahh! I miss summer!" "Wahhh! I can't wait for summer to begin!" "Wahhh! We're all gonna die in a heap!"

    And here in AZ, a state known for its blistering heat, we've been having more pleasant temperatures lately. :)

    And things are finally supposed to be cooling down here in Texas soon.

    Well, the forecast is saying that today will finally be the last day of this infernal heat wave (then again, that's what they said two Saturdays ago), so I hope that's true, because I really, truly, cannot take this anymore.

    Since this is about over now, I believe PL mentioned a few pages back about temps climbing up into the hundreds - I didn't want to say anything at the time because I figured I might jinx it, but now that this is practically over, we thankfully haven't seen temps over 100 here in about four years. That much I can be thankful about, because for a while there, it was getting to be an every year thing where from June to August, it wasn't uncommon for the temps to reach anywhere from 105 to 110. Hottest we've ever gotten was 115 in 2011. Hope that never happens again, but since Climate Change predictions are showing that summer where I live will be like Mexican summers in the next fifty years . . . that just makes me want to cry.

    And just for the record, today's date isn't September 25th, it's August 53rd. August lasted 53 days this year; September will only have eight.

    D'Snowth, i'm really starting to feel your pain about the heat. We went to the state fair a few days ago and half the day was pretty miserable because we were just walking around in the 93 degree weather. We would've done so much more had it been cooler. And I just hate the fact it's almost November, yet it still feels like freaking summer! I just really miss the fall weather. As far as I can remember, I don't think i've ever seen an autumn this warm. And the only times it has been cool are cloudy rainy days or at night or early in the morning. It's driving me crazy! When - when will this end.

    Even though I already posted this in the smile thread, I guess it doesn't help that today was our first day of actual, true, fall-like weather, with a high of only 61 today. :smirk:

    But my dad's a truck driver, he was just in Texas, and even he was complaining about the heat over there (in the 100s where he was), and to make matters worse, the A.C. in his truck broke when he was there. And it's ironic, because he's like a reptile, he's always got to be kept warm, so when he, of all people, complains about the heat, you know it's too hot. :p

    My nightmare really is becoming a reality: after these past two years of August heat spilling over into September and delaying the beginning of fall, I've feared that this is becoming an every-year thing now . . . well, local weather and climate experts have confirmed that this is going to be an every-year thing from now on.

    And guess what happened? Go ahead, guess!

    In all actuality, December was great this year! For a change, we've even been below average for much of the month, which is a rare occurence for us any time of year, but I mean to say, that all and all, December was perfectly seasonable this year.

    Until today.

    That's right. On Christmas Day, it had to jump up twenty degrees for absolutely no reason. And after the rain we've been having, it felt like a sauna outside today . . . this is not what Christmas is supposed to feel like.

    And the thing of it is, this is only lasting two days, so why even happen at all? Especially why did it have to wait till Christmas Day to do it?

    This is the third year in a row now that Christmas has been above average. Last year was the worst: it was way up into the 70s, and it was raining buckets, which made it seem like Christmas in Florida.

    I also forgot to mention I bought a brand new Christmas sweater this year and I didn't even get to wear it! :mad:

    Yeah, it's been bizarrely warm the past couple of days where I live too. This was by far the warmest Christmas i've ever had. I have never, ever had to use the air condition on Christmas. Even that one day back in 2010 or 2011 when it was the first day of winter, yet it was somehow over a hundred degrees, it still ended up cooling way down by Christmas eve.

    Holy crap.

    We have early springs quite often, but never like this: here it is already in the 70s for the entire week . . . in February! This has never happened before, that I can remember! I am absolutely ****** about this! I mean, come on! What's the deal with this?! It's bad enough that summer lasted a month longer than it needed to last year, now this?!
  20. Pig's Laundry

    Pig's Laundry Well-Known Member

    Yeah. In general, i'm not much of a fan of winter weather, so I wasn't too upset about it being kind of hot. But than I thought to myself, if this is how winter feels, how hot are spring and summer going to be? :eek:
