Aww, boo hoo, East Coast. It was 112 degrees where I live a few days ago, and that's not the heat index. It's funny how it's suddenly news when the heat dome gets to the Important Region. We're having the worst heat and drought since the Dust Bowl and New Yorkers act like they're living in hardship because it's 104. I saw the NBC Nightly News earlier tonight and they were talking about the horrible temperatures in the 90s that the East has to endure for the next few days.

Yikes, I didn't realise how high the temperatures were. Hope you guys are keeping cool. 120/48 is ridiculous.

and where exactly do you live? All the news I've seen for the past week was how bad the weather was in the midwest. No one was overlooking it. I didn't even realize it had moved into the east coast, so there's something for the intense coverage.

Yeah wow. I can handle 40 pretty easily but 48 is insane. Particularly in countries where the weather dips well below 0 during winter in many areas.

You know when you're standing next to a big truck or bus that's been running for a long time and you can feel the heat radiating off it? It felt like that everywhere yesterday

I would kill to have some of your heat. I'm in Vancouver, and the weather this "summer" has been ridiculously awful. We've been hovering at an average of around 16C/61F for eons now. I'm crossing my fingers that August will be warmer. I live for hot sunny days.

Awww poor girl. One of my dogs went outside in our yard, looked at me for 5 seconds, and ran up to me on the porch like "Get me the fuck out of here."

I have type 1 diabetes and extreme heat makes my blood sugar go haywire. I've had to monitor it very closely the past few days. I waitress and I usually work Fridays and Saturdays, but this weekend I wasn't scheduled. Because of the heat, I'm happy about it.

I have SAD, so I'm pretty fucking desperate for some sun/heat right about now. Bring it on! Send it all our way. I never complain about the heat.

Travis doesn't believe that I have SAD over it being summer. I really, really just get super bummed out when it's hot like this. But, no, I realize it's not actual SAD, and I would totally trade places with you in a heartbeat 'twere it possible.

I didn't even know 82% humidity was even possible, it must be unbearable.

I'll take 120F dry heat anytime compared to that.
