Re: Heat Wave!!

Been really hot here on the mountain, the back injury is keeping me inside the house. It's hard staying inside, I miss doing yard work and walks in the woods.

Re: Heat Wave!!

We camped in Missouri and other mid-west states during the heat wave and drought last year and it was miserable. 115 a few days. It's been right wet in Virginia this spring. I wish nothing but good luck and safety to those of you dealing with the heat this year.

Re: Heat Wave!!

I live on the gulf coast of Florida, which everyone thinks is so unbearably  hot in the summer. Thing is I've been traveling to Texas regularly for the past few months. Living on the water keeps the temps relatively moderate, generally high 80's to low 90's here on the beach. A beating afternoon sun in Austin or Houston when it's pushing 100 with absolutely no breeze makes me glad to come home to the relative cool of FLA! The heat in Texas has been brutal and it's only gonna get worse.

My sister lived near Dallas for 5 years the weather is real odd there as it can change in a real short amount of time. Most Texans say if you do not like the weather now wait a bit and it will change.

Re: Heat Wave!!

Just had a bit of a situation in Baker CA yesterday. Stopped mid road trip to let the GF's little one go to the bathroom and my dog destroyed my truck from "both ends," if you catch my meaning. I spent 40 minutes in 122 degree heat cleaning and deodorizing. That really stunk. And it smelled bad, too.

Since Friday the weather here in N.Texas has been awesome!  No higher than 100 during the day, 70s at dusk till dawn.  This cold front is supposed to be here for the week.  It was only 88 at 3 pm.

That sounds like some kind of daytime Nightmare!!. I hope this heat will leave us soon.

Re: Heat Wave!!

It's been pretty warm here in NY, although not terribly more than usual.  The bad thing though is that it's also been aweful humid.  More than humid actually... the areas around me are considered disaster areas as many of them have flooded.  We're talking about shopping areas with water up to the tops of cars and such.  Serious flooding.  Bridges are looking like landslides and roads are completely washed out.  We've got a few hundred people that are still displaced from their homes since last Friday, and it's still raining.  My backyard has been quite wet but thankfully I live on a bit of a hill and most of the rain has been east of here.   

The kids are bummed it's been too rainy to go to the beach, but thank goodness for AC!

Re: Heat Wave!!

Spent all of last week in Orlando at the AAU volleyball championships with my daughter. Expected it to be unbearably humid as it was in South Carolina in '05 when we visited family. Surprisingly it was less humid than in SoCal and, while warm, not hot. The Florida drivers made up for the lack of uncomfortable heat though...

Came home to SoCal where the heat was higher...and humid too! Funny, I used to look forward to the arrival of the heat as it meant the possibility of large fire potential and fun for me. Now it just means I sling steel in the heat and the only reward I get is a small paycheck.

I still prefer the heat though.

Re: Heat Wave!!

Trolldome (living below the Bridge) is pretty sweet lately. It has been in the low 70s the last few days, but we are   expecting to be in  the dreaded mid to high 80s toward the end of the week. Wish we could store some of that heat  for winter.

Re: Heat Wave!!

The last year I delivered mail, there was an armadillo corpse on a slight rise on my path to a mail box. Armadillos really stink after being ambient temperature in summer heat for a week or two. I remembered this fact and took care to alter my path to the box to miss the remains.
Inevitably there was a car that crowded me enough to watch him and made me forget about the former armadillo. I heard the squish as I plastered him all over the underside of my car.
Even techniques that remove skunk smell failed to remedy anything.
Only time-lots of it finally helped a bit.
