Yep, I was standing next to it before that happened. You need to be on a roof about 4:00PM this afternoon like I was. Pretty miserable.

102 degrees, I think the heat index was 111. So glad I have a basement shop. If I could only find the time to get down there these days...

Birds chirping...pheasant crowing...guinea hen cackling. All in all....a pretty good day. :)

Quail running through the yards but no stinking guineas or pheasants.

When I lived in St. Louis, and had just bought my house, we had something like 47 days in a row over a hundred.
And I was clearing the jungle from the yard and trying to study for the bar. I used to say St. Louis was built over He!!. I miss it, though ....

Never noticed that guineas stank, or pheasants, for that matter. Of course, we have a seriously devoted bird dog.
Anything with wings - or anything interesting at all, such as her sister (the sheltie) - gets pointed and chased. And frequently caught and eaten (yuck). :eek:


what does this have to do with turning? life is too short, and we may as well share the other parts of our lives as well .... (JMO - must be feeling philosophical this evening :rolleyes:)

It started at about 55 this morning and got to a blistering 85 with minimal humidity. I can barely stand this heat wave.

Summer forgot to show up here on the So Cal Coast
I'd be surprised if it even reached 70 today. More like 68. But I live pretty close to the ocean.

Driving to Vegas last week it hit 117.

pulled out of parking garage for lunch and the temp meter inside my truck jumped to 104 the moment the truck pulled into the sun. Dehumidifier in the garage has pulled +12 gallons of water out of air in garage in past 2 days.

Last weekend I was foolish enough to be working in attic....this weekend I opted to scuba dive. Burned my feet on the sidewalk...just like when we were kids running between lawns trying to get to the neighborhood pool.

Cathy,

I was slinging mud at John Hart and he did pick up on it.

We have quite a bit of bird hunting locally....5 types of grouse, pheasant, 2 types of quail and chuckar......

I haven't hunted birds in years.

down here, It isnt so much the heat....although it gets pretty hot...It's the afternoon rain that turns the ground into a steam machine once the rain quits.... You just stand outside and you sweat .... High nineties with 90 % to 95% humidity after a storm.... The afternoon haze of hot moist air just ruins any outdoor activity


and dont even get me started about how hot it gets out on the railroad tracks. maybe it is psychological, but I swear it is 20 degrees hotter at work.

Next winter we will ask how cold it is where you are at? 100+ for several days in HOT sunny Florida.

I love the picture. It has been about 65 degrees here with the marine layer firmly in place-would like to see the sun, but y'all can have the 100+.

Come on guys, it's unseemly for you (you all, for you all down in Texas) to be complaining about the heat. It's supposed to get up to 106 degrees Fahrenheit in Mesa, Arizona today -- about 10 degrees cooler than it was a few days ago. And yes, while it's drier here than many other places, this is when the humidity is at its highest. So you could add a few degrees to those temperatures for the heat index.

You don't hear those of us in Arizona complaining about the heat, do you?

http://www.sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?t=143106 Um. Well then. Never mind.

Remember way back when the economic professors said you couldn't have recession and inflation at the same time...'til President Carter proved them wrong? Well we're working on disproving that you can't have the temperature and humidity at 100+ at the same time :eek:

Rod Sheridan

29C temperature, 40C humidex reading.

(That's about 84/104F).

Can't get much better than this, nearly noon and slightly overcast at 75F, with the parade of Navy and Coast Guard vessels about to pass by the office window on Elliot Bay, and the Blue Angels in town for a weekend air show.

90deg and humid today. Heat index 100. I like to stay in the garage tinkering with stuff. Wife stays indoors with the AC.

Got back from 4 days on Mackinac Island Mon. It was great there. 19 family and friends.

I thought this was funny. This happened just 10 minutes ago, and I just had to take a picture and post it.

We live out in the middle of nowhere, with a driveway that is 1/4 mile long....and here comes the ice cream truck and my girls come screaming, "Daddy daddy...the ice cream truck!!...can we get some ice cream!!!!?"

I left a butane ciagerette lighter on the console of my truck yesterday and it exploded (thankfully I wasn't in the truck). Don't care what Mythbusters say, it happened to me.

103 with a heat index around 110. We are in the middle of paving season, so we are standing on top of and beside asphalt that is 300+ degrees on its own. Factor in the humidity, plus the rollers going back and forth, with water spraying on the roller drums and turning to steam instantly and no wind, and very little shade, and you get a really pleasant combination. Now do this for 11 - 12 hours a day, all week for several weeks on end, and you could say that we are baked, boiled, poached, roasted and fried, all at the same time.

Have a nice day.

Yeah, It's hot here too. All the way up to 78 today, expected to break 80 tomorrow. Chance of rain. Does anyone want to compare snow total's with me ? We generally get in excess of 250 " of snow a season. I've got a 6' snow blower on the front of my tractor to take care of it.

Alastair Cook did a TV series some time back called "America". It was a view of America through the eyes of an Englishman.

He remarked in the series that his favorite newspaper headline was from a San Francisco paper that said, "Seventy Again Tomorrow - No Relief in Sight."

That's the kind of weather I want. I hate hot weather.

People die in San Francisco when the temp reaches the 90's. Back in the 80's I covered the Giants games at Candlestick, if I didn't wear thermal long johns and a heavy coat I would have suffered with hypothermia. Mark Twain was right when he wrote "the coldest Winter I have ever experienced was Summer in San Francisco". May not be his exact words but the meaning is there.

Growing up in Oakland I loved the weather.It gave me a million laughs watching the tourists freeze their butt off in July. The hottest time of the year was always September just after school went back.
It's 64 on my back porch.

I recall an extra inning game at Candlestick one evening a friend and I attended. We were awarded the Croix De Candlestick for staying to the bitter cold end. I think it was in August.

Here in the south west area of Washington, it has been cool out. I was chopping some fire wood and it started to rain. Been a light mist to light rain most of the day.
