94F (feels like 98F) - Washington, D.C.

by Anonymousreply 407/17/2013

So far it's only 86 in the living room, bathroom, and kitchen. 76 here in the airconditioned bedroom and office. Last year it got over 90 in the unairconditioned rooms for like a month. I told myself this year I would buy another air conditioner. But this year it hasn't been hot and I didn't.

We had a massive freak thunderstorm last night here in Seattle -- was in the high 80's yesterday, today it's not even 70.

Mid-80s in New Orleans. There's a convention in town with a lot of people from the Northeast and the D.C. and NYC attendees are saying it's much hotter back home.

NYC is increasingly moribund, R17, so I'm not sure what you're so proud of... It is to every other major growing city in this country as America is to China.

by Anonymousreply 2107/19/2013

R18 speaks for me too. NYC is loathsome, and the world does not revolve around it. The rest of humanity has finally gotten to the point where it can criticize The Rotten Apple without being tarred and feathered.

I can't take this anymore. I HATE SUMMER. When you cannot even walk 5 blocks without being a puddle of sweat it is NOT. OKAY.

Yesterday I took three showers just to maintain some semblance of dignity. When the weather reaches 90+ degrees in the Northeast, it actually feels like HELL DEGREES because of the unbearable humidity! Last night it didn't even get below 85! Something is terribly wrong with that.

You know it's bad when I 28 year old man who is physically fit is having difficulty breathing! I can't take this anymore. Call me Mary! but this is just too fucking much. October cannot come soon enough!!!

by Anonymousreply 2307/19/2013

I live in NYC but I have to flee it as often as possible in the summer. Living in any type of urban setting when it's hot and muggy is gross. It's hotter, more humid and more intolerable in cities for some reason. Maybe all the people. Maybe all the concrete. But regardless, once you go out to the country it seems more tolerable.

Philly's heatwave has been extended into Saturday. You know there will be people who will have the need to go outside, just because it's the weekend.

98 in far South Chicago Suburb.

How I know it's hot: my old dog barks at my feral cats from the deck, doesn't bother chasing them, they simply lift their heads up and stare at her, one gives her the paw, they all go back to napping, old dog is turns to the back door, goes back inside.

Inside cats feelings as follows:

Remember that candy that was those little wax bottles filled with a sugary liquid R37? Ever see one left on the sidewalk to melt in the sun?

That's what HK looked like today. You could hardly take a step without having to hop over one.

Philly and DC areas were hotter today than all of the rest of the us but the southwest like Phoenix and Death Valley!

Fuck you, r15, it was HOTTER in Philadelphia today than houston, so suck my cock!

by Anonymousreply 4007/19/2013

The TV news said it was 100 in Newark, but my car said the outside temp was 103. (This was around 5:30 when I was on my way out to dinner.) The heat index (or whatever it's called when the humidity is factored in) would put that number even higher.

Still, without a doubt I prefer this to the coldest days in winter.

And at least it was breezy today, even though it's the equivalent of opening an oven door.

by Anonymousreply 4107/19/2013

Frosty here in Montecito, California. Definitely below 32 degrees in the house. Oprah heard Rae Dong Chong's comments.

I'm with you also R17. We may not number enough for a DL we, but linking any damned thing including the ambient daily temperature to portions of the country (or politics) which offend you is getting tiresome.

Tell that to the snotty, haughty New Yorkers, R49. For a decade, they've bashed every state that isn't their own. It's as rich as Wall Street for you to play the martyr now.

You're in a valley you don't count. April was among the coldest on record in the north central U.S

by Anonymousreply 6307/20/2013

Not for us, it was average all year except that we had low snow fall. Now with a hideous hot summer it feels like penance.

And frankly, you toads in the back woods don't really want to know what we think of you, do you?

Does anyone have one of those split A/C systems? I got an estimate for central air and it was $12,000. I want to look into this as an alternative because if this is the new normal, I don't think I can continue to live without air conditioning.

I'm about to pass out. I walk around feeling dizzy every day, I don't feel like eating.. it's just too hot. This heat has really taken a toll on me. It's hell. I cannot stand these heat waves. Seriously.. it hasn't rained here in forever. We even have forest fire warnings. It's really bad.

Oh, and before you say something.. it might "only" be 28 degrees here. But remember, we have NO A/C here.. it' not like in the US where everyone has A/C. It's much harder to deal with the heat here up north. Besides.. the humidity is awful too. It feels more like 37 than 27.

Those are both really cold temperatures, R75.
