Oh we've had 100%. I don't know how Florida can stand this.

We've had 30 days of 100+ heat this year.
And it ain't stopping any time soon.
Fuck this heat, no matter where you are.

Maybe you stole it from us. We didn't have one goddam day over 40 this summer

I think the fucked up weather all year has had a bit to go with La Nina/El Nino, I've read a few times that they were particularly intense this year.

So why don't you make a thread about it and stop bitching in mine.

Temp got as low as a chilly 96 last night. Back in the 100's again today... the way the roads and steel buildings here in Manhattan retain the heat makes it even worse.

Power grid is being pushed to it's limits. Hopefully it holds up...

We lost power here once, the factory I worked at did too, thank God I wasn't there at the time. The cable went out at one point too.

Mocking irritible people frying in the heat for not frying in heat 10 degrees worse is not a great way to make friends.

I would never have guessed that the weather in Vegas would be more tolerable than that in Chicago at this time of year. I am coming back to Chicago later today (if this flight ever leaves), so I hope that weather tempers a bit.

I don't know what it's called, but there is something that's the opposite of SAD, for people who HATE the sun and warmth. That's my best friend. We're so completely opposite. I couldn't believe she actually agreed to come with me to Vegas a few years ago. She stayed in the hotel/casino most of the time.

That would suck to have no AC (as much as I love the heat - AC is wonderful). Hope the power doesn't go out!

Certainly all your tears can sustain a few crops for a couple days, no?

I didn't realize this was a game of "My life sucks more than yours".

Weather has a well known east coast bias.
